Ehni Mary Geraty Ehni, 57, formerly of Glenview, passed away on Jan. 27 in Pittsburgh. He was born in Glenview on Aug. 22, 1959. She was a woman full of grace and compassion who lived a faithful life in service to others. Mary was a graduate of Regina Dominican in 1977. Mary will long be remembered for her unconditional love of people in her community, as was evident in her dedication to the Ronald McDonald House in Houston. She only had to hear a quiet “hello” in her children’s voices to know that her help was needed, upon which she would immediately rise to the occasion. She was equally responsive to others in need, from the countless friends who gratefully received her hot meals and wit to the clergymen and women who she attended to while they were ill. Her grandchildren will never forget her largerthan-life spirit and her special adventures. She Voting Open February 2-28 Vote: We want to know your favorite local businesses!

Hours spent chauffeuring the kids back and forth. Laundry, errands and doctor appointments. Let’s face it, we all find ourselves in these dilemmas — never having enough time in the day to finish a day’s work and then relax, let alone worry about what’s for dinner. For North Shore residents who find themselves in a jam when it comes to preparing a delicious and unique menu for dinner, Winnetka couple Kaveh and Madeleine Mirani have just the perfect solution — a dining concept that concocts fine restaurant quality food for either deliver or pickup. The Miranis, who have owned and operated eateries in Winnetka for the past three decades, recently introduced their newest venture, Mirani’s At Home, in an effort to tap into a dining market they say exists too far and few between. Mirani’s At Home officially opened on Jan. 16, offering a combination of French, Italian and other Mediterranean cuisines. Additionally, the Miranis ensure hints of their Persian and Dutch ethnic foods are also present on the menu. Diners can choose from a variety of a la carte chicken, seafood, pasta, rice and MIRANI’S AT HOME 567 B Lincoln Ave., Winnetka (847) 446-4646 4-8 p.m. seven days a week Pre-ordered meal deliveries begin at 3:30 p.m. Mirani’s At Home’s chicken Parmigiano ($14) features breaded chicken breast atop a bed of spaghetti in marinara sauce. Chris Pullam/22nd Century Media salad dishes and then stop by the business in person or place orders online or over the phone. The chicken Parmigiano ($12), which includes breaded chicken breast and spaghetti with marinara sauce, is a staple Italian dish that’s good for adults and kids alike. The spaghetti is lightly sauced and the thin chicken slices are not heavily breaded, lending to both great noodle texture and appropriate meat portion. The mustard crusted salmon ($15), one of the restaurant’s staple dishes, features a breaded salmon with mustard sauce served over French lentils and fresh vegetables. The outside of the fish is crunchy but lends a soft and firm inside, and the dish undoubtedly stands out for it’s mustard flavoring that’s not too strong or overwhelming for the natural flavoring of a well-cooked salmon. The Northbrook Tower Editor Matt Yan’s favorite dish was the Mediterranean chicken kebab ($11), which includes diced chicken marinated in olive oil and signature Mirani’s spices and served with grilled vegetables. Sour cherry saffron rice can also be added to the plate for $6. The chicken’s light grilling lends great balance to the uniquely cooked grains. “We’ve had comments from our customers already that said, ‘I might as well have been in a restaurant, it was so amazing,’ and that’s exactly what we want,” Madeleine said.
