Happy Monday, lovelies!
I hope you had a restful weekend filled with all of your favorite things!
So, the first thing I learned this weekend is that Mr. Arotin makes mean homemade beef jerky! (Thus, the random pic above!) Just when I started to think he couldn't get any better, he did.
This batch has a special infused ingredient, ginger! It is delicious, fat free and isn't salty at all! A very yummy, protein-filled snack.
Mr. Arotin's Ginger Jerky (modified from the Nesco version):
4 TB soy sauce
4 TB Worcestershire sauce
1 TB tomato sauce
3 TB grated ginger root
1/2 tsp black pepper (more pepper for hotter jerky)
1 TB curry powder (optional)
2 cloves garlic
Marinate the meat for 4 to 6 hours, then drain. Place on trays to dry. Dry until properly dried and chewy, normally 6-12 hours.

We are headed to Chicago on Thursday for my sister-in-law's bridal shower, so its a short week for me, yay! I wanted to ask you lovelies if you have any recommendations of must-eat restaurants, must-drink bars, or must see and/or do activities? The last time I was in Chicago I was about 10, so now that I'm a grown up I am hoping for more adult fun!
Let me know your Chi-town thoughts and have a great week!
