Our PBB Brown Bag Analyst apparently decided we losing Saints fans here at the Worldwide Headquarters needed a “pick-me-up.” So lo and behold, what arrived here yesterday shrouded in dry ice but a tasty “consolidation” prize box from our friend in Chicago.
The Lou Malnati pizza is in the refrigerator, as it needs to defrost fully before we can pop it in the oven, but I had to sneak a piece of the Eli’s Cheesecake last night. Oh.Yum. Very light crust and rich, rich, and creamy, creamy.
Thank you my friend. You’ve made the agony of defeat much less daunting!
For those of you who might like to send Chicago food delicacies to someone you like — it’s pretty easy to do. Just go here to the Tastes of Chicago website.
And yes, this is airline related, as the first time I had a piece of Eli’s Cheesecake was on a United Airlines’ flight. Small world department — as it was on a Dallas-Chicago flight I was taking to go to United headquarters. I spent the day talking to the top management folks there.
The reason for the high-end lunch on such a short flight? United was making an effort to “upscale” their food offerings in an attempt to sway American customers.
Doubt they served the cheesecake in coach, however.
Thanks again to our friend and cohort in Chicago. His “winner’s package” will be on its way later in the week.
