  1. Years ago I would get fresh sliced from Whole Paycheck. Would then make tonnato sauce for it- so not really sure how low sodium when I got done with it! But at the time I was purchasing it, it did not have that pressed turkey feel. Not sure how things are these days, but it was good back then.
  2. We go to the one in Palisades. Lamb shank in herbs keep me pretty darn happy. Lamb cooked slow can be a bit indestructible. Your chicken kebab can be a bit more sensitive. Amoo is a great for kebab. Don't really eat beef these days, but the koobideh from Amoo is super yum. Sorry for the typo. My computer lives in the kitchen and is ancient- yeah, "keeps" is what I meant. But everyone support our restaurants when you can Aracosia, Amoo, any one. BTW keep our dear city in your thoughts tomorrow. All our downtown friends will have to close for the next couple of days. Hope we
  3. How about thanks Mr. Rocks! Thanks to all in the industry trying to hang on. We love you and cherish the care you give us when you are terribly strained. Will make some extra posts. Happy New Year.
  4. Oh no!! If things for the industry were not bad enough. Not really a prayer person, but prayers for all of Green Almond. They are a fantastic group.
  5. Macarthur- I just had the fish taco last time with the salad side. Pretty much ate the inside of the taco with the salad. Snacked on my kids beans. It's easy and local. Usually I grab some candy from the convenience store in the same center. Wander over to the Co-op to see what is there.
  6. Not at weekend brunch, but if you call, otherwise always available. All other meals available. Fiola Mare has a whole bronzino and a whole dover sole. Black Salt will cook anything from the market to order. If they are willing to make it why does your dining partner care if it is on the menu are not. If you call ahead for special requests, you dont look like a prima donna
  7. You have to find your passport!! You do the online app, then grab an appt at the end of the online process.
  8. Online app, but they can be pretty quick. Do the online app to jump start the process. When you are done entering info they show you what appointments are open. They are going to take your picture at your appointment so be sure to be pretty that day!
  9. Do the Reagan Building. It is quick and painless. I take the earliest appt and show up a bit early. Easy peasy. Everyone in my family has it. If you are coming into Dulles, When checking through immigration, you go where the airline attendants go (to the far right). For customs, you go to the far right again. People not in the know will look at you with ire :-) Kind of like when I learned years ago if you ordered your Gtown cupcakes in advance you skip the line and people wonder who that uppity lady walking right in is. Kids like the cupcakes when we are not at Baked and Wired.
  10. Rainy day and craving chai- it made me very happy The spices look wonderful- I plan a return trip. Got some chutney, kewsick yogurt, spiced chickpeas, and some tomato salad. They do not sell the chai tea though. Why to go- grab a cup of chai, look through the beautiful books, get some spices (you scan get premixed curries that will do you well), grab some keswick yogurt without dealing with dupont market- just take a moment in a peaceful space. Hope this space treats you as well as it treated me today.
  11. Notes from Thanksgiving 2013 Our Thanksgiving got crowded so we added fish cooked on the grill to reduce kitchen traffic. It went over quite well- bought salmon from A&H marinated in soy, oil, garlic and made a tahini sauce from the food blog MidEats (this sauce is like crack to me). A bit of relief from the heavy food. I also made a West African Peanut soup based on Moosewood's recipe, but with chicken stock- made it two days prior and put it in the slow cooker for the big day (you could probably do it post Tday using turkey stock and some left-over yams). I cannot recommend this sou
  12. Excited for Galileo tonight! Been lurking about for years, but felt that you guys had covered most things and said it way better than I could. Look forward to joining you now.
