I was SO excited when Pret a Manger opened in Chicago last year, but unfortunately it's not all that close to my office so I often forget about it. I know I talk about it a lot, but I haven't actually gotten to eat it in a while. But when I was out running errands on my lunch break today, I spotted those red and white stars from afar and ran towards them as fast as the crowded sidewalks would allow. Their baguette sandwiches are to die for. And although the smart side of my brain told me to get the mini baguette, I sprung for the big size complete with a side of potato chips. Quite an indulgent lunch, but worth every calorie.
