  1. I feel like I have seen that plating with the swipe, but I can't remember where.
  2. Dinner - The Polyphonic Food Blog

    It was use up things in the fridge night, so I sauteed onion and garlic with the last of the kale in the fridge, added in a zucchini that needed to be used, tossed in some chickpeas with lots of olive oil, salt and pepper and tossed in some veggie penne pasta I boiled and butter. We ate with a chebe bread that I had a mix of in the cabinet for a while and decided it was time for it to leave the cabinet.
  3. Ok, so this recipe for carnitas is awesome! I loved it, Hubby loved it, agreed we would totally make it again. As a note, I halved it and didn't mix the braise liquid together beforehand, I just added all the stuff to the pot after the pork was cooked. I didn't see any advantage to dirtying another bowl to mix it. I also didn't make the salsa because Hubby isn't a big pineapple person. So we had it on these really good store bought tortillas (a little more expensive, but they say handmade style from Harris Teeter) with onion, radish, lettuce and some hot sauce. https://www.gimmesomeoven.com/instant-pot-crispy-carnitas/ It was a good night and I think we are both eyeing up the leftover pork. I had a defrosted full two pieces pork tenderloin, and I saved a little for a stir fry another evening, but perhaps I should have made the whole thing.
  4. Breakfast

    Went all out today, made waffles in my mini waffle maker. I like the size of these waffles compared to bigger ones.
  5. And, uhh... I am a woman, just fyi, since this is the internet and all.

    I love the floral one- I don't know if it seems like your style though.
  7. I learned to read on a whole language premise, not phonics. I am now and always have been a very fast reader, and writer, with a more photographic memory, but it really wreaked havoc on my spelling skills. I learned more phonics and grammar in learning foreign languages which I think helped my spelling somewhat, but my Mom has always been upset that I learned via whole language.
  8. What have you liked there? (Are their pics on your insta? I always love the pics you post.)
  9. The lawyer may have taken the case on contingency, I would guess that they did in this type of case with who is involved, but generally for an attorney to take a case on contingency, you have to have a bit of evidence and a decent shot. As an attorney all these sexual harassment claims really raise for me a big ethical question- I really don't like that people are being tried in the court of public opinion, and I have seen cases with very horrible untrue allegations against employers as a revenge for terminating them. At the same time, I know that sexual harassment exists, it often is a very hard case to prove, and I don't want it to continue to be pervasive. But the lawyer in me also believes that there should be a fair trial before we assume someone is guilty. I also think there are very often two sides to every story, but that doesn't mean that one person can't be a victim. So while I appreciate the Me too movement and think there is a lot of behavior out there that needs to change, it is hard to see things like this playing out.
  10. The spice rub this weekend was especially good, it tasted like they upped their game a little.
  11. Virginia Wineries

    Went to Naked Winery for their lasagna lunch. I didn't think they had any wine I thought was stellar, but it was drinkable for sure. The lasagna was good, a big portion, with garlic bread, very family friendly, affordable. It was a nice way to spend a finally warm sunny day with friends. The lasagna wasn't better than what some of my family can make, but the whole thing was a fun afternoon.
  12. Was here for lunch the other day and had the fried shrimp po-boy. It was ok, but I seem to think getting a good po-boy, a really special one isn't an easy task. I like their other lunch items better.
  13. Backpacks

    Yes, I have been looking for one that looks professional that I can use for my work laptop, that will maybe fit a file or two (not legal size), so I could walk from the metro with it to my Tysons office, but my laptop is quite big, it's been hard to find one.

    Leftover instant pot rice pilaf with chickpeas, and homemade brownies.

    I saw a gentleman with a leather Tumi backpack in Turkey that was really nice looking, but I think it was bigger than what you want. Matt has a fossil laptop bag that has lasted forever.
