Below The Beltway

I believe in the free speech that liberals used to believe in, the economic freedom that conservatives used to believe in, and the personal freedom that America used to believe in.

Filet-O-Fish Rage

by @ Wednesday, March 31st, 2010. Filed under Food, In The News

Sometimes, you just gotta eat:
McDonald’s might need to enlist its Big Mouth Billy Bass Singing Fish, made famous in its TV ads, to “bring back” that fish one impatient customer took at its restaurant in South Brunswick, N.J.
Police said the customer crawled out of his car and into the drive thru window to get his [...]

What’s Your Signature Cocktail ?

by @ Tuesday, March 24th, 2009. Filed under Food, Wine

Over at The New York Times, a writer wonders if we’re choosing our drinks based on what we like, or what we think others like:
If I had to guess, I’d say that many of us aren’t drinking what we’d truly like to drink. A friend of mine frequently orders Pimms to remind people of her [...]

Get Your Hands Off My Miracle Whip

by @ Wednesday, February 18th, 2009. Filed under Food

Jazz Shaw uncovers a scandal of monumental proportions:
Today we take a sad look back at the dark day in 2006 when Kraft Foods made the horrible decision to change the recipe for Miracle Whip. In one fell swoop they destroyed a classic American tradition and pushed civilization one step closer to the abyss. We’ve never [...]

Fifteen Squares American Bistro

by @ Sunday, January 21st, 2007. Filed under Food, Washington DC, Wine

Last night, Kellie and I had dinner at this new restaurant attached to the Renaissance Hotel on 9th Street in D.C. and had a great night. It was another one of the Tastings Journal events that I wrote about earlier this month.
There really isn’t anything bad I can say about last night. The atmosphere was [...]

by @ Tuesday, January 9th, 2007. Filed under Food, Virginia, Washington DC

If you live in the Washington, D.C. area and looking for great places to eat that aren’t chain restaurants, then there’s a resource for you.
Several months ago, Kellie and I were clued into something called Tastings Journal.
Once a month, for at least a week and sometimes longer, they team up with a restaurant in the [...]

Get Your Hands Off My Fluff

by @ Sunday, June 25th, 2006. Filed under Food, Government

There must not be too many serious political problems in Massachusettes, because the legislature there has been spending its time worrying about that grave threat to the Republic, the combination of Marshmellow Fluff and peanut butter known as Fluffernutter.
To all those state legislators who have ever neglected weighty issues in favor of fluff, the politicians [...]

The Easiest Recipe Ever

Stephen Green has another Friday recipe up at Vodkapundit, this time involving something chocolate and a couple glasses of port. Though I imagine you can improvise and just skip the chocolate altogether.

Success Yet Again

by @ Saturday, October 15th, 2005. Filed under Food, Personal

After a hard day of driving around Northern Virginia stimulating the economy, we came home and I made this recipe for Kellie. As with July’s Penne Pasta adventure this one turned out really, really well.

Friday Food Blogging

Over at Vodkapundit, Stephen Green posts a recipe for Coq au Vin for Four.
Any recipe that calls for four bottles of wine sounds good to me.

Post-Birthday Haze

by @ Sunday, August 7th, 2005. Filed under Food, Personal

Yesterday ended up being a fairly low-key, relaxing day. Exactly the kind of day a tired 37 year old needs every now and then.
After getting a late start on the day, Kellie, Raymond, and I hung out at home for a good part of the day just talking and relaxing. Running hard during the week [...]
