    Looking for a quick fix? Try the TJ's Orange Chicken, it rocks.
    Also try the pot stickers, they are yummy,
    Also in the frozen are some really delicious frozen crab cakes and try the talipia baked fillets. Very yummy.

    Frozen veggies? Can't go wrong with organic sweet corn or frozen green beans. Through those bad boys into hot dishes. In general their frozen veggies are good values.
    Cheese anyone? Go with the Gouda and Goat Cheese. Very reasonably priced.

    TJ's BBQ sauce is really good. Also their peanut butter filed pretzels are very yummy along with their fruit squeezers is a hit with my kids.

    Beware of portions though. Prices are lower, but their portion sizes are smaller. Just an FYI.
    Men do dumb $hit... it is what they do to correct the problem that counts.

    I always find Trader Joe's beer to be a pretty good bargain. Not sure how much of that they will move (or you would buy) there in SLC though.

    One of our local Trader Joe's is moving to a more convenient location for me closer to my house and set to open very soon. I'm looking forward to it.

    Hmmmm the Trader Joe's suggestions are appreciated and it sounds like I will be visiting. I'm almost all a-twitter! Ok, I'm interested but not to the point of being a-twitter, I just wanted to say something interesting. Fail? oh well.

    All these discussions about wireless plans and iphones belong in the #firstworldproblem thread, IMHO.

    Something you didn't know about me: I have never sent a text message. Hey, where's that dinosaur icon I've been requesting?

    Get out your phone and text me NOW! Before some secret government agency targets you!!!!

    PS I actually think my daughters might speak to me a lot less if I didn't text with them. Perils of firstworld parenting I suppose.

    Mine sometimes talks to me through texting. Sometimes that's the only way

    Challenge accepted. I cannot promise anything but more banal, inane, ridiculous commentary....but that's what you were getting from me anyway so who are we kidding.

    In DC for a HUD event. Had Ethiopian food last night and dim sum is on the agenda for tonight! *tummy growls*

    I'm hungry now but we're not meeting until 7pm. Woe is me. I guess I have to live off the fat of the land for a little bit longer.

    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.

    If I was a painter, I would paint the warm, golden evening sunlight that happens this time of year. I can see it out my supervisor's window... truly golden rays.

    Go to Teaism and get a salty oak cookie. It is on the corner of D and 8th St NW just north of the Navy Memorial. Their bento boxes are outstanding as well.

    If you want a good (but pricey) Tappas place head to Jaleo...I have not lived in the District in 5 years and I still dream about both of those places.

    I like our chances for 7k. Unfortunately we shoot ourselves in the foot all year... Why would we expect excellence?

    Fauxtoshopping!

    It can't hurt my recent job application: someone posted a photo of our monumental Christmas tree, and suggested that it would look nicer with a decorative fence style, rather than the "keep out" all-purpose playpen stuff presently encircling it.

    Sourced a decorative garden fence (has tree-shaped elements in it), used it as a template, whipped up a graphic using the original photo. (Made the fence bronze.) Added tree lights. Elapsed time: less than an hour.

    Yes, it reduces to less than full screen. But on these smaller displays, you need the full screen.

    There is a Grape Leaf Express around the corner from our house. We have been eating there nearly once per week since the baby was born. This weekend we scored a $30 groupon for $10 for there.
