  1. It must be in our genes! My favorites foods are wine, sausage, pierogies, and White Castles. That looks like a fun adventure in Chicago. I bet the Grandmas loved it.

  2. I love that your triumphant return continues on with feasting. Welcome back to the USA. Please tell me you had a cannoli.

  3. Pope John Paul II was reportedly a fan of Kurowski’s Polish Sausage and the Vatican would order it from there at his request, hence the photo.
