And it was a good month for dining adventures...
|Cute little individual tiny Brie cheeses from Trader Joe's. These were supposed to be for kids' lunches, but they're alarmingly addictive and I ended up eating four out of the five-pack. In three days.|
|Chirashi-zushi from Ichiban in Bowie. Sad to say, I've been so spoiled by delicious chirashi that my reaction to this was, "seriously?" I found the assortment disappointing. Still, one could certainly do worse.|
|An original gyro and seasoned fries from Marathon Deli in College Park. I was shamed into going there by friends who couldn't believe I call myself an alumna of UMCP and had never tried it, and I understand why. It was a great gyro.|
|Hot stone bibimbap from Spa World in Centreville, VA. Not the best bibimbap I've ever had, but good.|
|Fried dates wrapped in bacon from Jaleo in Bethesda. This was a D.C. Restaurant Week adventure. They were good, but I have to admit my husband's version is better. Sorry Jaleo, but your food was still very much worth the trip.|
|Also from Jaleo: chocolate mousse topped with chocolate ganache, hazelnut ice cream and glazed hazelnuts. This was amazing. Worth the visit for this alone.|
