They’re returning for a pop-up event at the sister event space, with two new items on the menu, such as the Saturday Morning with strawberry milk ice cream, Fruit Loops, Lucky Charms, Cinnamon Toast Crunch and freshly baked doughnuts. For more savory sustenance, chow down on breakfast sandwiches made on either kolache-dough buns or housemade biscuits. 12 to 3 p.m. Saturday. Free. 6500 N.

Keep dinner light with this chicken potato salad

This light, summer roasted chicken potato salad uses only one pot. It won’t heat up your kitchen and takes only 20 minutes to make. I use a bought roasted or rotisserie chicken breast for the salad.
