  1. I live near the FC branch, and haven't been in a couple of years since they stopped serving the Red Pozole.
  2. I often get a slice or two from the WF across the street, it's better than a lot of dedicated pizza places. The Sicilian style has a delicious crust.
  3. Serious Eats has this version made with Cheddar and Monterey Jack; https://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2011/09/chili-con-queso-recipe.html
  4. Nice red peppers, too.
  5. I wonder if you could sous vide them? Just heat them to the desired temperature.
  6. Mad Fox faced unique challenges nearly from the start. “When we opened the only way to sell a pint of beer to a consumer on site was to have a food component in Virginia,” Madden said. “That changed in 2012 with SB 604,” the law allowing brewery taprooms to serve full pours on-site.
  7. It's as if they want to make sure you read the scribbles accompanying the drawings.

  10. A friend of mine showed me this trick, and it's the best restorative warming you can do, IMHO. One must take the instructions of 2 drops of water seriously. The number shall not be one, and three is right out!
  11. Have you had occasion to replace the light bulbs in your Zephyr hood? My last house had a Zephyr Island Hood, I think it was the Napoli, and I had to order replacement light bulbs from Zephyr, as the domestically available bulbs had a shorter base that wouldn't make contact in those receptacles. I could have replaced all four receptacles, but it was easy to just order the bulbs direct from Zephyr. I was wondering if this is still the case.

  13. Last time I tried to register for a new account, it just wouldn't function.
  14. Yep, a couple months ago, I was perusing the ice cream selection at the Giant in Falls Church, when I saw the 4 or 5 flavors they have in pints of Big Gay Ice Cream. I've tried the "Dorothy" and "Birfday Cak" flavors, and they're delish. The Cucinelli family might have a problem with it, but who cares?
  15. Was the sign like this?: NASHVILLE , is a city in Tennesee, that gets HOT in the summer. Hey, we have CHICKEN!
