What I was up to – May 2018

Stirfry noodles made with veggies from our hungry harvest box! Hungry Harvest is cool – it’s a subscription box of fruits and veggies that are “rescued” from being thrown out. They grew too much, too big, too small, etc. But it’s all good quality. We’ve been really happy with it.

We saw a huge cloud of black smoke and went on a walk to figure out what it was. Turns out it was a new development that had a massive fire but it looked like it was on Center.

We had District Taco with Janine and Ron. Omg, her face. I love it. She has the best belly.

We saw a brick oven pizza place reviewed on a PBS DC-area restaurant show and we took a ride over on a weekend to try it out. It’s called Crust. It was good!

I ended up sitting on a bench with a guy who had a similar aged baby whose wife was running the race. We had a nice chat.

I bought this from this lady who sells chocolates at work sometimes. It was amazing inside and out. I brought it to my mom’s for mother’s day and her birthday.

I had a costume party to run to after that – Doug took Elena for dinner with his brother and their family who were down visiting our niece.

This Italian artist did a cool piece of John Mather as a cat, in the cleanroom with the telescope. He sent me this pic, lol.
