  1. Ordered take out from Lotus Garden tonight. - Steamed Chicken with Ginger & Scallion in Chefs Special Gravy (Go Hop Gung Hanh) - Buddhist Vegetable It was delicious and the portions are substantial. Will definitely enjoy the leftovers.
  2. I wish that AhSo was open for lunch since that is when I am usually in Ashburn. Yesterday I tried the chicken bahn mi at Pho Nomenal. While the fillings were ok the bread was horrible — they served my sandwich on a soft sub roll. Their website features bahn mi on proper bread. Hopefully, yesterday was a fluke but I don’t know if I’ll return. Also, rather expensive… $7.50 for the bahn mi… next time I’m going to Eden Center.
  3. If you like eggnog, try Puerto Rico’s version, coquito.
  4. Sorry about your figs. Were they on the counter or in the fridge? I picked up a large container of figs from Trader Joe’s and was keeping them on the counter and enjoying them as they ripened. One morning I found four fuzzy figs that had to be thrown away. I examined the rest carefully, they were fine, and put them in the fridge. So far, no more figs lost to mold.
  5. @saf would you mind sharing your clafoutis recipe?
  6. Next time you are in St. Louis I recommend Comet Coffee (http://cometcoffeestl.com) for coffee and pastries. For dinner I recommend Bulrush (http://bulrushstl.com).
  7. It all depends on the fruit you are preserving, for the peach recipes you don’t have to create your own apple pectin. Perhaps strawberries have enough natural pectin too? Will check the book when I get home.
  8. I haven’t tried Ferber’s strawberry jam recipes but I have made a few of her peach jams and really like them. Do you have her book, “Mes Confitures: The Jams and Jellies of Christine Ferber”?
  9. @zgast thank you! What great choices! Just looked at Gadaleto’s takeout menu and it sounds like a great option. Mercato looks good too but I’ll save that for another trip. Yes, I’m looking forward to seeing the tulips and other spring blooms!
  10. Thank you all very much for your suggestions!
  11. @zgast thank you so much for the recommendations. No need for upscale on this trip but maybe for another trip. What do you recommend if we continue towards West Chester? Google was recommending taking Route 1 for the last bit of the drive and I was going to go that way but nice to know that a you recommend it too!
  12. Planning a day trip to Longwood Gardens. Any recommendations for lunch or dinner along the way or in Kennet Square? Looking for outdoor dining or take away options.
  13. @saf the dinners sound good. Where did you find ramps?
  14. Whole Foods also has the harbison. It was also one of the sale cheeses during the WF 2020 12 days of cheese. Delicious cheese.
