  1. My 6-year-old, who won't be having a birthday party this year, has been eating a lot of ham sandwiches, hot dogs, and chicken fingers. 🙁But she'll also eat plain (well-rinsed) black beans from a can and a ton of fresh fruit, so let's focus on that. One day since school's been out she ate an entire Costco-sized container of blueberries. I'm thankful she's well past diapers.
  2. Oh my goodness! This is so sad. I'll echo the others who said they never met him in person but enjoyed his posts here.
  3. After 20+ years of living here I'm still terrified that I'm going to get on Rock Creek Parkway in the wrong direction during one of the times it's only one way.
  4. What I hate about Virginia driving is the lack of merge areas!! Omg I find them so dangerous and some don't even have signs. (I'm thinking of certain places on the GW Parkway.) I've definitely encountered this in DC and Maryland, too, but it seems to be much more prevalent in Virginia.
  5. That sounds nightmarish. I was talking about when there’s a long line of people waiting and rather than wait someone zooms right up to the last possible merge point and tries to nudge into the line. There’s no way I’ll let that person in. Otherwise I’m happy to let people merge.
  6. So much this. This is the only scenario in which I really get aggressive while driving.
  7. Governor Larry Hogan announced an executive order Monday to close all bars, restaurants, movie theaters, and gyms in the state of Maryland starting 5 p.m. on Monday. Drive-thru, carryout, and delivery will continue ... for now.
  8. Maryland schools closed starting Monday until 3-27. Think of me as I attempt to telework with a 6-year-old in the house.
  9. I was just there 90 minutes ago. I'd never heard of it before yesterday. Funny you posted about it today. Unfortunately I was in a hurry and just got the house drip. It tasted fine but was lukewarm. I'm really not a coffee connoisseur, but I enjoyed the space and the service. Also, it smelled REALLY good in there (like cinnamon buns), but I didn't eat anything.
  10. Per Montgomery County Media Ricciuti's is closing Sunday after 28 years. The restaurant was sold to Thomas Zippelli, who plans to renovate the inside of the building and hopes to open a new restaurant called Salt and Vine by Mother’s Day. I live in Silver Spring just north of the Beltway and we've been to Olney a couple of times for dinner, but sadly we never made it here.
  11. I went last week and the bread is now $12 and comes with two dips. I noticed above and in Tom's review apparently it used to be $9 with one dip. I enjoyed everything and didn't notice any salting issues (and I think I'm more sensitive than most to overly salted food). We had both breads and four dips (wish I could remember which ones, but I don't remember chicken liver mousse as an option), the champon noodles, the cavatelli, the branzino, the pork blade, and one really delicious smaller dish with uni that I don't see on the online menu.
  12. If they can give you e-mail addresses of their local friends you could also set up a Meal Train for them. Local friends can sign up to bring them homemade dinners or have food delivered from restaurants on a specific date (I suppose non-local friends could also have food delivered). Since most people have limited freezer space these meals could supplement the freezer meals.
  13. I never have to clean food off my floor because of my dog!
