The Edible Kingdom: 2-Legged Edibles

Continuing from my previous post on 4-legged delicious animals, I’ve moved to 2-legged beasts of flavor. Because of the limited amount of 2-legged edibles out there, I’ve only got a top 2 for this list. Starting off the countdown is the most popular of meats, the one animal that most others seem to taste like: […]

My Nemesis: the Raw Onion

French onion soup is one of my all-time favorite soups. my homemade chili requires 3-4 medium onions per pot. My mirepoix doesn’t short the onion of its 1:1:1 ratio to carrots and celery. I eat pickled cippolini onions like they’re popcorn. I like to use shallots in salad dressings and my chicken piccata. The cooked […]

Why New York is Awesome: the Highline

New York City is easily my favorite city to visit. it’s super accessible and always interesting. Last time I was there, I wanted to see the Highline, but didn’t get the chance. This past trip, my cousin took me there to see new york’s growing urban park being developed on existing train tracks spanning from […]

Local Blog: Metro-Venture

I like to read up on local blogs, especially when it comes to the subway – staying abreast of information and news helps me be more aware of what goes on while I’m at the station. It seems like when it comes to the subway system, bloggers are more accurate and forthcoming than WMATA is […]

The Edible Kingdom: 4-Legged Edibles

My cousin and I were talking about foods we like to eat and eventually got to ranking foods based on categories. We focused on animals, and eventually got to making categories like “best 4-legged animal”. “Best” meaning tastiest, of course. this is the start of a multi-part blog post involving the Edible (animal) Kingdom. We […]

9 Years

I remember exactly where I was when I heard about the planes crashing into the World Trade Center towers. It was my 2nd year in college and my old freshman roommate, Travis, called me and said “a plane just crashed into the world trade tower”. I think I had recently woken up and I thought […]

Fall Outlook

This is a great time of year. September marks the beginning of the awesome time of year. Not only is winter (and therefore snowboarding season) just around the corner, but the chilly evenings means hoodies and jeans! 1. school is back in session. hopefully this translates to fewer tourists on the subway, albeit possible we’re […]

Blogger Crush: DateMeDC

*** UPDATE *** it looks like I may have published this post a little too late. DateMeDC may be taking a break from blogging a while, but don’t let that stop you from reading her posts. Her blog is both very personal and very public, and this latest post demonstrates that she, too, is human. […]

Cardboard Boat Race 2010

Each year, my friend Mark has participated in the Rock Hill Ruritan Cardboard Boat Regatta down in Stafford, VA. I had heard of this event but hadn’t had the chance to participate yet. Until this year.
