After much deliberation, I am headed off to Chicago with a couple of girlfriends for a night out on the town. I was seriously considering not going - I felt like any free time I have these days needs to be spent constructively - but I decided I'd better take the opportunity while it's there. I can see that working full time will bring on the guilt factor a bit!

My friend's sister is making all the arrangements (and we are staying at her place - gotta love free accomodations) so I'm not quite sure where we're going to eat yet, but apparently we have reservations at two appetizer places. I love appetizers - just nibbling on lots of little things. After that it's drinks and dancing and there are quite a few places she has lined up for us to choose from. Hopefully the World Series revelers won't be out in full force yet or we may be forced to retreat to her apartment.

So much for spending the weekend baking and such. Too bad - it's chilly and damp - perfect baking weather. I'm afraid that Sunday will be spent playing catch-up and that I won't allow myself any baking time, but you never know.

I don't want my cooking blog to be devoid of cooking talk again for 2 days, so here are a few more of my favorite recipes. Let's make the theme desserts - chocolate desserts....

These are absolutely fabulous.
I'll be back later this weekend to review the restaurants and bars we visited this weekend and don't forget that WDB #6 will be posted at Sweetnicks on Sunday. Bailey will be participating once again...
