    STOP Signs - What Do You Do When You Reach One?

    If you're ever traveling in Roanoke and getting on I-581, be forewarned: I have never found anywhere worse in my life for people stopping on a highway entry acceleration lane. I can't count the number of times I've had to stand on my brakes to avoid hitting these idiots.
  2. But that's because it's in Tyson's Corner Center. The anchors in Galleria are Neiman Marcus, Saks and Macy's.
  3. Put all the kiddie stuff up there and then have ancillary shops with things that the parents can grab in a hurry for themselves, or make it the teen gathering area
  4. stopped at the Mosaic District location of District Dumplings today. The location is down a short side street where Brine is on the corner, then a Cheesetique has opened there as well, and then the dumpling shop. They have a nice mix-and-match option of 10 dumplings for $10 ($1 extra per Peking duck dumpling) and a nice variety to pick from, standard crescent shaped dumplings as well as shumai in the mix-and-match for $10, plus they have soup dumplings. I went with a mixed batch of standard dumplings, steamed: chicken & basil, kale, pork & celery, and bulgogi. The wrappers are nice and thin, slippery and lightly chewy. I thought the fillings were pretty good, with the chicken and basil being my favorite and the bulgogi being my least favorite -- mostly a texture thing, since it had little chunks of meat and air pockets, where they other dumplings had ground-up fillings for a more homogeneous texture against the wrapper. Sauces were sriracha, Kikkoman soy, and hoisin sauce. I wish they had a ponzu sauce. They are cooked to order, so it was about 15-20 minutes for my order to be brought to the table. A sign on the register noted when the place is busy, it can take 30-40 minutes to get an order to the table. You can see most of the kitchen while standing at the register and it's easy to see that a busy restaurant could back up quickly. There isn't a lot of seating, maybe 30 or so inside, and a couple of 2-tops on the patio outside. The staff is friendly and helpful. All in all, a nice stop for a $10 lunch.

    What Are You Baking?

    Pillsbury Bake-Off is open for submissions
  7. I overbought fresh corn at the market last week, so I nuked what I hadn't used up and, once it cooled, cut the kernels off the cobs. The cobs I then broke in half and put in the Instapot with about 4 cups of water and a pinch of salt. Cooked under pressure about 8 minutes. Fabulous corn stock. I refrigerated it and this morning put together a chilled corn soup. I'll pick up some crab while I'm shopping today for a lovely cold soup dinner tonight.

    DR Summer picnic -7/29/18 Noon to 5ish

    I ended up with matching two metal big tablespoons or smallish serving spoons. I'm happy to return them to the rightful owner, whoever that may be. They're clean now
  10. I gave up on Oreos when the transfats were taken out. Totally changed the texture of the filling and made them unpalatable to me. I still like the chocolate cookie part, but I'd rather pull them apart, scrape the original filling out, and put a schmear of something else on top of the cookies.

    And the tomatoes! Oh my goodness, so much goodness! Unfortunately, I lost track of what I was tasting but there wasn't a clunker in the bunch.

    So sorry you couldn't make it. Another successful picnic, and everyone who thought about coming but didn't, you missed out on great food & great company. And I am now the keeper of the DR picnic supplies.
  13. I like Trotz, but I am unsure how much of the Cup win can be attributed directly to his coaching. I guess we'll find out in the upcoming season. The fact that the players have been largely silent on the issue after the 3-4 days post-announcement of his leaving indicates to me that they aren't bothered by the fact that he's gone, so they must be very comfortable with Reirden taking over HC duties.

    Turns out I do not have paper plates. However, I'm adding bottled water to my brings.
