The Chicago Bears were playing on Monday Night Football this week. I am a Chicago native, and a huge Bears fan. It was a very exciting night, as they were playing the Green Bay Packers, our biggest rivals. We, of course, had to host a MNF evening at our house. In true Chicago football tradition we ordered Chicago style deep dish pizza. If you have not had the pleasure, you must run and seek this experience. It might kill you, but it would be worth it. Here in bay area we have Zachary’s Pizza, which I submit, is actually better than any pizza I ever had in Chicago… but don’t tell Chicago. Really, it would just hurt her feelings.
So I bet you are thinking why the blog post if you ordered out? Well, I do have a picture of the pizza we ate, but I will save that for the end. We also served the salad from my last post, the Arugula with Gorgonzola and Pecans. The thing is, you can’t have all that richness without something sweet to compliment it. So in that vain I present to you my new favorite cookie like dessert. Chocolate Hazelnut Pochettes.
