With the Bears in the NFC Championship game, Chicago is all orange & blue all the time. Both papers are draping themselves in the Bears flag, the local newscasts seem to be leading with a Bears angle, and there sure are a lot of Bears jerseys at Menards today.
Tom Thayer's Italian Beef Recipe.
Over there on the sidebar of my blog, Google Analytics displays the top posts - based on traffic - for the past week. There are a few usual posts that get a bunch of search traffic and a few "current" posts. But...this particular one has never appeared before. My only (completely uneducated) guess? Party planning!
Don't know who Tom Thayer is? That's him over there on the right - in all his glory. He's a former Bears offensive lineman and current radio analyst on their broadcasts on WBBM.
And...after eating his version of an Italian Beef, he knows a thing or two about the kitchen (or...more likely his mother does!). I made a pot of this stuff last weekend for a few friends and we quickly devoured it. If you're looking for something to make tomorrow for your Bears party, give this a try. It is a bit spicy, but it will definitely be a hit.
