I'm not too concerned with the cholesterol in eggs. Eggs get a bad rap for that but in moderation its not even an issue.
Sometimes I cook up 8-10 eggs for my husbands breakfast and it worries me but I will let it slide for now.

I eat egg whites because I don't really miss the yolk and I would rather save my calories for something else like chocolate and wine.

My husband is going to school in Chicago and received a great job offer that is going to make going to school and working a lot more comfortable.
We are young and we don't have any children so why not. Chicago is a great city.
Although I admit I don't plan on making my home there. As soon as we are done doing what we need to do we will be back home in Texas where we belong.
God bless Texas!

BTW I made my profile public now.

So what is the consensus on best place around LP/Lakeview to buy produce/deli meats?

Right now I wait till I have a client out in Northbrook and do the Dominicks there or Palatine and do the Jewel there, but I'd love to be able to shop in the city. I can't justify $1.33 sub-par oranges at Whole Foods, either.

How can no entrepreneur see a huge opportunity here? I miss my Plum Market in Ann Arbor & Super Kroger Fresh Mart in Birmingham.

You don't have any little Hispanic groceterias near you? Those are the cheapest...

I guess I'm just lucky because I have a bunch of them as well as Asian and African markets near me. Oh, and Indian if I feel like going down Devon.

Hank do you go to that awful, tiny Dominick's on Chicago? I really hate that place.

Stanley's on North/Elston will be your closest bet. I like to get my produce at the Korean Market in Avondale though for the cheapest prices I've seen.

Joong Boo market on Kimball just south of the Kennedy. Bonus reason to visit: decent little Korean restaurant in the back.

Thanks Drover, I was worried I'd butcher the name.

Ok, the store in Melrose Plaza I referred to is Dollar Tree. They have a few cheap food deals there, like $1 Texas Toast and other $1 frozen food deals.
