Contrasts

I was all set to climb back on the soapbox with a post about contrasts, whining about all kinds of issues. But truly, it has been a week full of polarities, the personal and emotional kind as well. Couple that with a neck injury that has forced too much takeout and not enough workouts this week, and frankly, I just don't have the energy for a good ranting political post. Instead, some lighter fare.

Rapini, fail. My experiment with broccoli rabe (sauteed in soy and oyster sauce) this week did not result in deliciousness. Next time, I'll make sure to follow a recipe.

Could Walmart really be the future of local sustainable groceries?

My friend who lives near my old stomping grounds was just telling me about the newest addition to the Cleveland Park strip mall. I'll be interested to see if the Cereal Bowl catches on; maybe it will be popular amongst the students. I just cannot envision folks heading there for a meal after a hard day's work.

Boccato Gelato is now serving up a Guinness Chocolate flavor. U got2 try it - it's fabulous!!!

All the fancy schmancy award nominations were issued this week. A little dismayed to see that J&G gets no love. Of course, I'm no expert in how these things work. Though, it does appear to be helpful to have a Top Chef connection.

Free Dunkin Donuts coffee. Knock yourselves out.

Finally, I cannot believe that I'm sharing about Domino's, but the latest ad campaign is effective marketing. We tried their new pie, and it's actually pretty good. The hand-tossed with buttery garlic crust is yummy fattening goodness, but if you are looking for a healthier option, the thin crust with robust tomato sauce, light cheese, spinach, and mushrooms kind of rocks too. Plus, this nifty online ordering thingy with real-time updates is pretty cool...Warren is topping your pizza....Jerome is putting your pizza in the oven...Your pizza is out for delivery with Jackie.
