I have arrived!  
Here I am in Chicago! That sure was a long day but I'm glad it's over!

...Note how I did not say I am here in New York; rather, I said I am in Chicago. Ayup, there WAS a delay (see my prediction!), a two-and-a-half hour delay from LA to AZ, so when I arrived in Chicago my final flight had long since left.

Fortunately, the friendly ATA crew hooked me up with a "distress discount" at a local Holiday Inn, so here I am now. This is actually a really nice turn of events. Had a nice dinner instead of more peanuts, my flight's been rescheduled to a nice 10AM, and I get Internet! Wowee!

Anyway, enough of my personal life. Here is some food I made yesterday.

Latkes! Or "potatoe pankakke" for you Amuricans. This was a professional recipe, meaning I got it straight from a chef, and not from Internet. It turned out awesomedome and everyone ate them all up. I grated up a little bit of carrot as well as onion in there too.

Anyway I'll see all y'alls in New York tomorrow.

Wow, that's a curious turn of events. I don't think I've ever heard (er... read?) a happy flight delay story. Congrats! Chicago is delightful.

Those look like some lovely latkes. Yay for honest recipes!

Well I mean it's not the happiest story. I was in a suburb of Chicago, and I still had to pay for the night in TWO hotels - the one I was supposed to be sleeping in in NYC as well. The good part was that I could pay for all of it. So I guess that's why it was happy!
