The Inn at Little Washington

Had bookmarked this place for a long time, but we never had the chance to visit.  This past long weekend, we went to Shenandoah National Park, it happened to be next to Washington, VA.  Plus, we planned early enough to be able to check out this long anticipated inn & restaurant.

已標記這餐廳和旅館在地圖上一大段時間,但一直沒機會住和用餐。這次長週末到國家公園玩,剛好在附近,而且夠早計畫,終於能到這來。

“This is the perfect location to propose,” I said to UN when we arrived.  It really happened one of nights we were here!  OMG, I cried!

P.S. Julia Child and the First Lady were here before!

到旅館時,一直覺得這裡超適合求婚!哈哈,結果最後一晚真的有人在旅館大廳求婚,結果我莫名感動飆淚! 

P.S. Julia Child來過,總統夫人也來過!

Dumpling Date Night

First, I want to thank UN for making dumplings with me despite having slept for only three hours the night before (he got called in around midnight). 

首先,感謝UN昨晚睡不到3小時(凌晨被醫院叫進去看病人),又上了一整天班,卻還是願意陪我做水餃!

Very unusual of me to buy dumpling ingredients, and I even bought carrot juice to make orange dumpling skins. (Halloween theme!)

Friends who know me know that I don’t enjoy eating dumplings, but I get a satisfaction from watching others make dumplings. One of my favorite YouTube channel Peaceful Cuisine has a video out teaching how to make dumplings. Watching it over and over again is so therapeutic for me. 

不知道哪根筋不對,竟然到軍營裡的超市買水餃料,還買了胡蘿蔔汁讓水餃皮變橘色!

跟我熟識的朋友們都知道,我不是特別愛吃水餃,但很愛看人做水餃。我最喜歡的是Peaceful Cuisine的無配樂水餃影片。他每個做菜影片我都愛,不吵有秩序,滿足我輕微強迫症的慾望。

Dumplings recipe: skin 9 grams, stuffings 11 grams, with cabbage, mushroom and ground beef. Conclusion: my wrists hurt, kitchen is in disarray, don’t want to eat dumplings anymore! (Sigh)

 今天做的水餃,皮9克,餡11克(以為自己鼎泰豐),內餡是白菜香菇牛肉。做完感想:手酸,廚房亂,不想吃水餃了。(崩潰中)

Lunch at The Bee & The Biscuit

Hurricane Florence is coming!  Stay dry and safe!  

颱風要來了,大家要小心!

Today marks our 2-month living in VA, and I don’t think I ever experienced this much rain in this short period of time.  While I’m writing this post, it’s pouring outside!  We came here after our Saturday run at Virginia Beach yesterday, but the wait was one hour.  I was starving after the run, and wasn’t sure if I wanted to wait that long.  

今天是我們搬來維吉尼雅滿兩個月,這大概是我人生經歷最多下雨天的兩個月!光在寫這篇文章時,外面已是打雷下大雨的狀態。昨天跑完步,我們決定來這裡吃飯,但等待時間實在是太長又太餓只好換地方。

After church, we decided to come here again to see if the wait was shorter.  Perhaps it’s because of the hurricane, the wait was less than 20 minutes.  During our wait, we went to the surf shop next door.  Small world, one of the employees’ sister works in UCSD Geisel Library.  I used to study there during finals in college.

教會結束後,我們決定再試一次。可能是颱風要來的關係,這次只需要等二十分鐘。旁邊剛好有家衝浪店,想買新浪板的UN當然要去逛一下。好巧,店員的姊姊在我以前大學的圖書館工作。

Our friend P introduced this restaurant to us, and WE LOVE IT!  I’m not a BBQ pork fan, but this place makes delicious BBQ.  A little sour and sweet, but the vinaigrette didn’t overpower the overall flavor at all.  

This girl won’t mind driving 30-minutes to enjoy their Pungo Pork Biscuit again.

朋友P介紹我們這家餐廳,我們超喜歡的。我一直不喜歡豬肉BBQ,但我好喜歡我點的這道。吃起來完全不會BBQ醬太多。肉有酸甜味,酸味也不會太強烈。

我完全不介意下次再開30分鐘來這裡吃飯!
