  1. My (brief) trip is next week if anyone has any last-minute tips! Thanks for the responses I've received so far!!
  2. So weird to see the post here and then hear the reference on the podcast a couple days later having never heard of this before!
  3. Did you hear reference to this on the Slate Political Gabfest by any chance? I'd never heard of it before, but John Dickerson mentioned it on last week's episode.
  4. My response to Jessica's tweet was (Ray's) The Classics. Such a loss for Silver Spring (and the area)!
  5. I run hot and cold with the Coen Brothers, and I had to force myself to watch "Barton Fink" on video many years after it originally came out, but I really enjoyed it. That was several years ago now and I don't remember much besides enjoying it -- I should watch it again.
  6. Hot dogs and cantaloupe. This morning she asked for steak and mashed potatoes (last night's dinner) for breakfast. Her preschool also serves breakfast.
  7. My daughter blew through a bunch of yogurt recently, so when yogurt was on sale at Costco I stocked up. Now she doesn't want yogurt. šŸ˜­ Last night we went to a dinner party where my friend made Malawian food (or probably more accurately Southern African food). It was DELICIOUS. My 5-year-old ate a fair amount of "chicken and rice" (a chicken stew with mushrooms, tomatoes, and coconut milk alongside saffron rice).
  8. I have a friend who has a pair of friends who are a married couple. The wife's maiden name was Blob, and the husband's name was Boner. The wife decided to hyphenate her name when she married, so her married name was [First Name] Blob-Boner.
  9. No need to apologize! I vaguely thought that might be what you meant, especially when you mentioned Taco Bell and lard in the next paragraph. šŸ™‚
  10. Wait, it's not vegan if it has sour cream and cheddar in it. Am I missing something?
  11. I'm going to be in San Antonio for the first time at the end of April for a short work trip (otherwise known as two dinners, two breakfasts, and one or two lunches). I read through the posts in this thread and came up with the following list of contenders for my dining slots: Boudro's Rosario's Los Barrios Liberty Bar Acenar The Esquire Tavern sounds interesting, too, so I may try to get a cocktail there. Any thoughts or any additional places to recommend? I'll be speaking at a conference at the Westin Riverwalk so will be staying either there or in that general vicinity, and I won't have a car (though I'm happy to take a cab for someplace delicious). I'd definitely like to concentrate on Tex Mex and/or Mexican food. I'm less interested in barbecue. I'd definitely like to try puffy tacos -- thinking Los Barrios for that -- and I have little to no experience with breakfast tacos so am wondering if anyone has a recommendation for those near the Westin. Thanks in advance!
  12. Iā€™m in Columbia from time to time (and I currently live in Silver Spring), so please keep the recommendations coming!
  13. We seem to have moved beyond the obsession with "a bread" from my 5-year-old (though I'm sure I just jinxed myself)! At the end of last week we talked about cavities and how she shouldn't eat after she brushes her teeth. (I thought "a bread" was a short-term growth spurt-related thing (but it ended up dragging on and on), so she'd been eating her bread after brushing her teeth.) Since then she hasn't asked asked for "a bread" before bed (or in the middle of the night, as she had a couple of times)! Last night for dinner she ate some blueberry yogurt, a little bit of corned beef left over from Sunday, and half a cantaloupe.
