Stepford Saturday

Ever had a Stepford morning? I used to have them in Alexandria a lot more often. For me it’s a morning when I’m up bright and early, willingly, and a plan forms. Even though I’d been out the previous night...

Rapaciousness in Blue

I really love my new dishes! When I was living in Logan Circle and had a roommate, I bought a really nice double set of Mikasa settings for 4. He didn’t contribute anything to the kitchen and between our cooking...

I shared this with Kris the other day as he’s the biggest choc-a-holic I know, but it was too amusing an anecdote not to revisit. We’re pretty used to amusing and informative scribblings on the back of our food packaging...

I was at Oyamel with Tim the other night and when we’d finished dessert and the server was teasing us about whether we had any room left — we didn’t. He offered tequila and I mentioned that I love tequila....
