Chicago Noms #2

A wonderful benefit of living in (or near) a big city is the variety of food! Whether you try a new restaurant or go to a fest, there is always something new to taste. Every week, especially over the summer, there are multiple fests offering different and unique foods.  As the summer came to an end, I found myself sad thinking about festival season ending and looking forward to apple picking, pumpkin picking, and maybe even a corn maize!

I recently learned of Apple Fest and became super excited with the prospect of celebrating fall and apples!  I visited the Apple Fest in Lincoln Square, and although it was a small fest, it offered the fall essentials: apples, corn, pumpkins, beer, and…apple pizza! When I first read of this menu option, I expected apple and cheese, a typical but delicious combination.  Instead, their specialty was a sweet pizza! It was brushed with whipped cream, chopped up apples, and topped with cinnamon.  Dessert or dinner? I’ll leave that to you to decide!

About Humble Foodie

While we both love to eat well, life as AmeriCorps volunteers doesn’t afford us the budget to try every new restaurant and type of cuisine. With many post-graduate expenses and limited financial resources, what’s a foodie to do? The answer is here, at The Humble Foodie. Instead of spending our hard-earned cash paying other people to cook for us, we’re spending as frugally as possible making delicious meals at home.
