Finally!

Drooling throughout (though thankfully in private) over an Anthony Bourdain – No Reservations Chicago episode, I nearly wept when he visited the best Sausage palace in all of the city: Hot Dougs. Tragic as it is, I was forced to confront an awful truth to myself. “It’ll never be yours, Ivey. It’s only a dream. And it will have to stay a dream.” After years of wasted hopes I finally had to admit … You just absolutely, positively cannot
experience this food without a bun. It’s both emotionally and logistically impossible. Not gonna work. Not now. Not ever. End of story.” Sigh. You never really get over this kind of loss.
And then a few days later – WHAT’S THIS??? What do I find in my emailbox?? A newsletter item from Udi’s about THE BUN LAUNCH!!
(Possible band name?? just a thought.) Joy of street culinary joys. It is now time to plan a trip back to my hometown for what I thought was a guilty pleasure never to grace my hands and belly again. The most genteel thing I can say in public is YUMMMMMM. Oh and Thanks Udi’s. I mean it really, truly and nearly irrationally – thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you … ok I’ll stop now.
