A two-scoop miracle!

A fresh tub of protein with two scoops that are both at the top?!?

Truly a Meathead Miracle.

Morning Tomatoes

This cherry tomato plant has been super-productive.

Pink Jimmy

The Pink Jimmy is a vodka/cranberry/lime, and a refreshing cocktail to record a podcast by.

Rowland Negroni

Celebrated our wedding anniversary with a lively meal and this twist on a Negroni, made with dry vermouth.

Three Dots and a Dash

We took a long weekend to visit our oldest on Chicago over the President’s Day weekend. One of the many highlights was a visit to Three Dots and A Dash, a speakeasy tiki bar off in the River North neighborhood.

We got there at the end of a long travel/sightseeing day, so the sugar and rum were the practically necessary to get us through the rest of the night. The Sippopotamus, featured above, was the standout of the night. Obviously.

Happy Valentine’s

Bubbly and a heart-shaped pizza. Probably follow up with some tv.

It’s a good life.

Pizza for the table and a Tecate bucket

A “pizza for the table” (copyright Supertrain LLC) was the best way to start a breezy lunch out at the Lilly Pad, a cool spot right on the James River.

Beer Dinner Outing

Michelle and I have been meeting friends out for monthly-ish beer pairing dinners at Garden Grove Brewing here in RVA.

They pair with local restaurants for a 5-6 course tasting menu. There have been hits and misses, but we love nearly everything we’ve had from Royal Pig.

I don’t know anything about Cambodian cuisine but this menu was a hit (except for the bitter melon!).

Good Bread

This is a request I was happy to fulfill.
