wow - stunned at whisked scrambled eggs

...and a wonderful and healthy (little sat fat, no salt) substitute for doing eggs in butter is avocado oil if you can find it. My brand is d'AVO and is just full and rich.

Lunch places along I-55 between Bolingbrook & Chicago

You already have a Portillo's in B Brook, but a nice half way mark might be their store on Harlem south of 55th. Exit 171 south if heading to city, Harlem if coming home.
