Best Thai in Andersonville?

I have had very good meals at Yes Thai, a little bit west of Andersonville. It's on Damen just north of Foster.

Food Storage

Anything with dairy, refrigerate, then bring to room temp before serving (though I personally love cold cookies). Try to refrigerate in an airtight, or as airtight as possible, container to prevent migration of smells/flavors from other refrigerated foods.

Valentine's Day---Going Out or Cooking?

We went out (to Chilapan, great BYO Mexican in Chicago) on Friday. My husband's bringing home something tonight. Potbelly, probably - and that's fine with me.

Ice Cream Battle

Haagen Dazs' Five vanilla is my favorite ice cream. Only five ingredients and the vanilla flavor shines through. Oberweis Dairy's vanilla is outstanding, too.

suggestions for wknd visit, one of us is a vegetarian

It might be more $$ than you want, but Opera on South Wabash is very hip and the food is very good. Chinese/Asian, and they have a separate vegan menu that you don't even have to ask for. 1301 S. Wabash; 312-461-0161. Another more casual suggestion is Kroll's, at the northwest corner of 18th Street and Michigan Avenue. It's the Chicago location of a well-known bar-and-grill in Green Bay. Good beers on tap and the veg burgers and fries are SO good.

Have fun.

Killer onion rings?

Anybody know where to find really good onion rings (not "loaves" or "strings") in the city? I have been so disappointed lately with onion rings that look good, but taste only of grease and salt.Thanks.
