    Wow! I am on Vacation this week & hoping to make it to Taste of Chicago. Thanks for the report. Now I know what to eat & what not to eat. Awesome!!

    Wow, what a total blast!! Thanks for a trip down memory lane and for all the great photographs. Total fun. The food all looks soooooo good, too! Nice to find vegan options there, ‘eh? Even a few are better than none. And way to bring your own drinks (you are a woman after my own heart!) and also to get discount tix at Dominick’s (Dominick’s!!! Memories…) – you rule!

    Oh! Sweet and happy day!

    Rob’s a groovy hand model. He might want to re-think his career. What do you think?!

    BUCKINGHAM FOUNTAIN!! *sigh* So amazing by day and even better at night, no?

    i got your e-mail – thank you!! – and will write you back at some point this weekend.

    Looks like you had a lot of fun. Chicago is on my list of places to visit. I’m impressed that you had the vegan options that you did. You’d starve in my tiny town. I recently worked at a wedding where 3 people requested salmon for dinner because they were vegetarians. LOL.

    That looks like such a fun event! Last year, I went to taste of Syracuse, and there were some really good eats. This year, unfortunately, we missed it, because we were gone for most of June. =(

    P.S. Just came back to say I really laughed when you got mad that the cheese snuck into your picture of the tamales! That’s really cool that no non-vegan food has ever snuck onto your blog before. Living with a not-quite-vegan, I can’t say the same thing for myself! =l

    What a fun outing! I would be perfectly happy eating falafels and Indian food all day.

    How awesome to take the trolley to such a great event! Looks like lots of fun. And I enjoyed looking back at your garden posts!

    That looks like a great day even if you were a little disappointed with some of the foods.

    Your garden looks awesome. Last year I tried to plant a small veggie patch in my yard instead of container gardening. The slugs attacked everything except the cucumbers, so I gave up. This year I joined a CSA. The garden is way cheaper if I have more patience next year.

    Did you hear about the 70 cases of salmonella from the Pars Cove booth? (http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070712/ap_on_re_us/food_fest_salmonella) It was probably just the meat… kind of scary though!!

    Actually, unfortunately, the salmonella has been traced to the Hummus shirazi, the first dish Vegan Diva featured above. By July 15, nearly 500 people had been reported sickened by the salmonella. You can read about it here http://www.promedmail.org/pls/promed/f?p=2400:1001:6646737529460059467::NO::F2400_P1001_BACK_PAGE,F2400_P1001_PUB_MAIL_ID:1000,38381.

    I sure hope Vega Diva and her friends were not among them!
