Not the Gout! a celebration of food...

crackedconch | Aug 11, 2009 06:17 PM

Shortly after posting a question on best eats in
chicagohttp://chowhound.chow.com/topics/621656 , I received several great answers! Thanks!
And then my husband was diagnosed with gout. :( However after walking and running around alot (he's a cop) on his bum foot for a month, he's been correctly diagnosed with <a broken foot!!!> poor guy. He got his moon boot today and walking next week will be difficult, but not impossible! And yea!!! we can eat again!!! After trying "tofu chicken wings" (YUK!) and cherry juice extract, real food will be a treat!!!!!

So, our plans are as follows. Please assist in any way you can as far as suggestions and logistics! Thanks!
