McCormick Place Hyatt. Something on Printers Row. Hilton + Towers on Michigan. I am assuming you mean the museum campus, not Navy Pier (Children's Museum) or MCA or any other place that may have museum [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I'm looking for an umbrella stroller that reclines (for a 1-year old so it doesn't need to be full recline). Considering the Maclaren Triumph, Inglesina Swift, Bugaboo Bee, or Chicco Caddy. I know these are all different, including price, but does anyone have any opinions on these or others? Thanks very much! 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I think the Triumph is the best of this bunch. I don't get the Bug Bee. What do you get for the $500 you have to plunk down? I can see why the other Bugs are $800 or so but this one? [ Reply | More ]

I have a Bee and I love it. Very smooth, one-handed steering, decent storage underneath and narrow, which makes navigating Manhhattan and all of the little aisles in tiny stores easier. I don't get what others 'don't get' about the Bee. *shrug* I think some just think it's cool to hate it. [ Reply | More ]

Thanks. How is it to fold? Our nanny will be using it when she takes DC on the bus. I've seen that the Bee can fold quite compactly, but I'm mostly interested in a quick, one-hand fold. [ Reply | More ]

It's easy to fold, but it's two handed. My gf has a Maclaren and she says she can never get it folded with one hand either, fwiw. :/ It is the one thing that I wish it had, but it hasn't been a problem yet... [ Reply | More ]

call your pharmacist. they are often not as busy and speak to you asap. he also has a really good idea about what medications are out there. then you can be prepared to discuss his recommendations when your doctor calls you back. [ Reply | More ]

i worked very hard to think of things to eat that either take very little prep time or taste well when prepared in advance. some of my favorite ideas are mock lasagna: use any noodle, cook in the night before. mix it with ricotta cheese, whatever seasoning you like (oregano, basil, etc), a jar of marinara sauce, and whatever frozen veg you like (i use spinach). bake at 350 until it's heated through. A similar idea is baked ziti: if you precook the noodles it is very quick. Fish fillets cook really quickly, as do chicken cutlets. I also love precooking soups: they always taste better a few days after cooking and they make meals very hearty. with some soups, i serve it with bread and it's a whole meal. [ Reply | More ]

I got a mini-meatloaf and roasted potatoes recipe from Martha Stewart FOOD. I make with turkey insead of beef. Very quick and easy, everyone likes, feels like a real meal. In the colder months I'll make a lasagna or bolognese on Sunday and I'll freeze some and use the rest for a couple of meals during the week. [ Reply | More ]
