Weekly Roundup: After the Storm Edition

IMG_0575_1

It's Friday. Have some cake. Or an entire roast pig.

The thunder and lightning were beautiful last night but I’m hoping for a drier weekend. Incidentally, next week is my last week of being 26. Anything I should cross of my list before the big 27?

Recipes I want to try from this week’s internet perusals:

  • The Arugula Files is topping pizza with peaches. Pizza . . . peaches . . . I never would have thought of it but it sounds like something I need to try.
  • Gradually Greener is making a salad with Mexican sour gherkins. A box of of these showed up at work last week and I had no idea what I would do with them, but mixing them with cherry tomatoes and dressing them with olive oil and vinegar is an excellent idea.
  • Peri peri nitty chicken, from the Washington Post. I am desperate for a new chicken recipe, and this may fit the bill.

And in other Internet news:

  • A new cupcake shop has opened up on Wisconsin – Something Sweet, at 3708 Macomb st NW. You can see some of their offerings here. Anyone up for a cupcake run this weekend?
  • Lemmonex is in love with Texas, the state where bread is a vegetable.
  • DC Foodies gives us a tidbit of DC cocktail history, and a preview of Rickey Month.
  • Poste will roast you a full pig. An entire pig. All you need is six to twelve people and seven days notice. Via Metrocurean.

Happy Friday!

    We did the Poste Roast and it was AMAZING! We had braised baby goat with sides of roasted carrots and creamy polenta with a Parmesan crust. It was DELICIOUS. The seat you at a chef’s table in the garden and when we left we each received a little tomato plant. I recommend it to everyone. Oh and the Obama’s went there, which probably means it will be hard to get a reservation but it is worth it.

    Argh, sorry for the two almost identical comments but I made an embarrassing apostrophe error that I simply could not let stand.

    Not another cupcake place!

    Hey, thanks for the link!

    Ooh, that new cupcake place is right near the community garden where my plot is. Must try it soon.
