April 3 is Fish Custard Day!
By now, I suppose, it won’t shock you to find that we’re a nerdy family, right? So, when the 11th Dr. Who threw down the gauntlet of fish fingers (sticks) and custard, what else was left for us but to pick it up? April 3 has been officially adopted as “Fish Fingers and Custard Day”... <a href="http://www.chicagonow.com/quips-travails-braised-oxtails/2014/03/the-wayback-machine-the-eleventh-doctors-fish-custard/" class="more-link">Read more »</a>

Did you ever do that thing where you bought something, and then you went back to the store with the niggling feeling you forgot something, and bought it again?
So, I went a little crazy buying carrots. You see, Sparky puts in his lunch order for the week on Sundays, and I happened to go shopping on Monday and remembered he’d asked for carrots, and then I ran out on Wednesday and had that niggling feeling that I’d forgotten something and bought carrots…and by... <a href="http://www.chicagonow.com/quips-travails-braised-oxtails/2014/03/sundays-with-sparky-carrot-torte/" class="more-link">Read more »</a>

Something for everyone here: terrific schwarma and lassi drinks for the more globally minded, excellent burgers and fries for the globetrotting-impaired, milkshakes for the sweet tooth, all served with a smile and genuine family pride. Delicious. Try it.

Chute Middle School is an undiscovered gem in South Evanston. I believe it is the best school in the City, despite having a large population of at-risk kids. It is housed in a beautiful building (unfairly maligned because of the front entryway) with a gorgeous courtyard garden in the center. Staff and teachers are incredibly kind and helpful, and still put safety and order first. Students are held accountable and encouraged to excel in their behavior as well as academics, and are offered supports like a free, teacher-driven afterschool "homework club" to ensure they succeed. My son, who struggled a bit in elementary school, has really blossomed under the care of the Chute teachers and staff - and I see that his friends do as well.
