Fire it Up Fridays - Reviews on Fine Dining and Not-So-Fine Driving

Cipro Mg, So while driving like a crazy lady to Calvin's school to drop off his red shirt that he was supposed to wear today and that I was reminded via email twice within the last 48 hours but still forgot... I came up with a new theory on why women are purportedly worse drivers than men.

Because the majority of women drivers are mothers.

You see, Cipro used for, if the car in front of you is being annoyingly cautious with a turn at a light, and the driver is a woman, Cipro without prescription, she's probably a new mother going out with her new baby for the first time and hyper-risk-averse for fear of getting into a fatal accident...

...or a mother who has another person's child(ren) in the car and God forbid something bad happening on your watch...

...or a mother who just received a call from the school about a supposedly sick child who's not feeling bad enough to definitely go home but not well enough to refrain from making multiple trips down to the nurse's office.., Cipro Mg. to pick up or not. The internal debate will slow her down.., cheap Cipro no rx.

Or if you see a mini-van drag-racing down the street, and the driver is a woman, Buy generic Cipro, she's probably a new mother with a feverish baby who needs to get to the doctor's office RIGHT NOW for fear of brain damage or worse...

...or a mother who has another person's child(ren) in the car showing off their karate moves and needs to get home before something bad happens... Cipro Mg, ...or a mother who just remembered she forgot to dress her child in red and now, because of HER negligence, is the ONLY one in his entire class not wearing red which will most definitely scar him for life... will drive like an insane person to deliver that red shirt.

And because most mothers are sleep deprived, Cipro gel, ointment, cream, pill, spray, continuous-release, extended-release. And according to a recent study, "getting less than 6 hours a night can affect coordination, Online buying Cipro hcl, reaction time and judgment..." (click here for original article).

Anyway, that's the end of my "Not-So-Fine Driving" portion.

Back in February, Jeremy and I took our annual NYC fine dining trip, Cipro Mg. This time, Cipro treatment, we stayed at the Hudson Hotel thanks to Will. [waves excitedly to Will who probably doesn't even read this blog]. Cipro online cod, Great location. Right around the corner from Columbus Circle:

We made our second trip back to Momofuku Ko. Cipro Mg, They have a no-photography rule, so this is the closest we'll get:

The food was painfully good. I think we counted close to 20 courses. I couldn't eat my last two savory dishes, Cipro price. But I finished all the dessert courses. Because, Cipro natural, you know, I have a separate stomach for that ;) And since going, I now have a third stomach just for the last course which was this miso-ice-cream-with-tapioca-and-some-other-deliciousness-that-I-can't-recall in a cone. I still think about it.., Cipro Mg. sigh.., Cipro maximum dosage.

We tried two new places; Daniel (Beware. this website plays annoying music)... Rx free Cipro,

Excellent food. Cipro Mg, Nothing super creative, but everything was well-made. Our chef at Ko referred to Daniel as "the place for old people". Ha. I guess she's right now that I think about it, where can i buy Cipro online, considering the waiter thought we were newly-weds...

...and Marea...

...which we visited several hours after Ko, Cipro Mg. About Cipro, So not a full-blown meal. Perfect late-night snack type of place.

Oh yeah, and the Lounge at Per Se, buy cheap Cipro no rx. I've lost track of how many times we've been here:

And to work it all off, we went shopping (or I should say, I went shopping):


Disclaimer. Cipro Mg, I swear to you I didn't wear the same outfit everyday. It just appears that way in the photos...

Oh yeah, for all you other foodies out there, here is a review you must read. I swear I kept on scrolling up to make sure it wasn't something from the Onion. All this review is missing are some poorly-lit pictures taken by a second-rate camera :) Our favorite line...

"Instead of the raspberry lemonade she suggested, I drank water."

Apparently, people were making fun of this 85-year-old lady. So now I feel bad. Maybe we should go to Olive Garden tonight for dinner...

Glucophage Price, SAAM like it hot. - Restaurant Review

On our trip out west, purchase Glucophage for sale, Online buying Glucophage hcl, we ventured out to SAAM for our first molecular gastronomy meal where, as mentioned in my previous post, buy cheap Glucophage, Low dose Glucophage, we got to blow "smoke" out of our noses.

Molecular gastronomy = meal for nerds who love food, buy Glucophage without a prescription. Glucophage wiki, As defined on Wikipedia:

Molecular gastronomy is a subdiscipline of food science that studies seeks to investigate, explain and make practical use of the physical and chemical transformations of ingredients that occur while cooking, Glucophage trusted pharmacy reviews, Canada, mexico, india, as well as the social, artistic and technical components of culinary and gastronomic phenomena in general, purchase Glucophage online. Glucophage for sale, Molecular gastronomy is a modern style of cooking, which is practiced by both scientists and food professionals in many professional kitchens and labs and takes advantage of many technical innovations from the scientific disciplines.

The term "molecular gastronomy" was coined in 1988 by late Oxford physicist Nicholas Kurti and Hervé This, Glucophage alternatives. Some chefs associated with the term choose to reject its use, preferring other terms such as "culinary physics" and "experimental cuisine".

I went thinking we would have some really weird food.., Glucophage Price. Canada, mexico, india, "molecular gastronomy" doesn't exactly conjure up feelings of "yummy" or "romantic"... more like memories of your high school chemistry lab.., online Glucophage without a prescription. Glucophage price, coupon, but hey. We're adventurous :)

Not that weird right, Glucophage natural. Glucophage Price, It was yummy. And romantic :) Especially with the "dragon's breath popcorn" course:

And to satisfy your curiosity:

The "smoke" is caused by supercooled air coming out of your nose due to the popcorn ball being dipped in liquid nitrogen immediately prior to consumption.

The popcorn ball itself was pretty everyday. I think the course was geared more towards entertaining the waiter ;)

And...

on a completely different note, I've created a new section entitled "Education" located on the left sidebar. I meant to post this on Thursday but forgot (was too busy sewing up costumes for the kids.) I've updated the "word families" page and added a page for free resources that I've found extremely useful in schooling our kids outside of school. Hope it can be some use to you.

Cipro Price, Fire it Up Fridays. Restaurant Reviews


Back in July, we got to travel to Chicago for a wedding, order Cipro from mexican pharmacy. And yay for big city weddings. Cipro for sale, Because it means we can double duty on some fine dining and touristy things that is nearly impossible once you have kids.

Whoa. Yeah, Cipro cost. Without warning, Cipro mg, this seemingly deformed branch was shoved in between us (the morsels themselves were good though).

.., Cipro Price. that made L2O a place we want to eat at again, Cipro brand name. (L2O stands for "Land to Ocean"). It was a memorable experience (for us, and most likely for the couple who were sitting right outside our door whispering behind our backs EVERY time one of us left or entered the room...)

We did the river tour... and then partied to Rebecca Black's infamous "Friday" song (our friend got married on a Friday...) Can't you tell how much fun we are having?.


" Cipro Price, ...fun fun fun fun... looking forward to the..."

...first day of toddler class for Stephen. (I know, poor transition. But can't be worse than the original lyrics. :z)

My little rookie all grown up...


Sporting his big brother's "Mr, Cipro Price. Happy" backpack. It's empty. But he insists on wearing it. You know. To be just like his older siblings:


Cipro Price, Ooooooh. How I love holding his small tiny hand that is always warm:


Sooo eager to get inside and start his day.


Waiting patiently...


2 days a week in Montessori toddler class x 3 hours = 6 hours of me time

My goodness. Where do I begin...

Dining Notes - Eleven Madison



This is the third time we've dined here but the first since they've received four stars (on par with Per Se Purchase Glucophage, ) and closed off a part of their dining room to create a more formal and quiet dining experience. We were impressed with their offerings during our previous take and were curious to see if the level of culinary expression would reflect their recent efforts in bringing their restaurant (and price) up a notch. Real brand Glucophage online,

It was very good. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal but were a tad bit disappointed. But then again, Glucophage wiki, we had fairly high expectations going in. Definitely worth eating here if you're contemplating trying out this place, Purchase Glucophage. Online buying Glucophage hcl,


Ambiance

Romantic and lofty. I've always liked their decor. Elegant without being stuffy, buy cheap Glucophage. It was definitely quiet at 5:30 but relaxed into a more casual level as the night (and wine) progressed.

Service
Purchase Glucophage, Was a bit awkward. Glucophage dosage, Forced perhaps. It was good service, but I think they were trying too hard, Glucophage treatment. They had a rotation of servers making rounds past your table every 30 seconds or so. Buy Glucophage without prescription, A wee bit annoying. I don't mind having my spot brushed for crumbs after every bite or my mouth wiped and teeth brushed after a sip of red wine.., Purchase Glucophage. but I don't want to know it happened. (The sommelier was excellent.)


Food

Two options: A four-course meal for $125 or a chef's tasting menu for $195, taking Glucophage. We went for the four course meal. Buy cheap Glucophage no rx, Just from experience, my stomach usually shuts down by the fourth course.


Purchase Glucophage, Highlights: The cup of thyme-infused soup (photo above, not on the menu) and the beef course that was roasted with celery root, mirepoix and black truffles. I personally really liked the second course of black truffle paired with celery root puree, low dose Glucophage, goat cheese and potato saboyon. Glucophage interactions, Jeremy thought it lacked interest in texture (i.e. glorified, very expensive baby food), Glucophage without prescription.

If I had to say anything...

...I would say that their foie gras torchon with cocoa and quince was a bit too heavy on the sauce. The flavor was good but overpowered the foie gras itself, Purchase Glucophage. Glucophage long term, (I just re-visited my notes from our first time here 4 years ago and it looks like I had pretty much the same dish.)


Their course of chicken roasted with parsnip, grapes, and hen of the woods mushrooms was my least favorite, Glucophage dose. The components didn't quite "mesh" and felt a bit like hodge podge in my mouth. Glucophage maximum dosage,

Overall, it was a good meal, but not quite as good as Per Se... or as good as we remembered them. The dishes seemed to have come together for the sake of being creative instead of delicious that just so happens to be creative.


Those who are into strong alcoholic drinks would like their final complementary glass of pear-infused brandy. It smells wonderful. But brandy is just too much for our taste :)

Definitely worth eating here, but I think for roughly the same amount of money, I'd go for Per Se's salon menu.

Take off the heavy object(s) and flip the chicken over so skin-side is up. Roast for another 10 to 15 minutes.

Craft Flop

The other day, I confirmed something I sort of already knew: My kids hate getting their hands dirty. I first saw this (in my mind) awesomely creative yarn bowl and immediately put it in my craft queue. I mean, how hard could it be? Yarn + glue + balloon + bowl. Got it all set up and even took "before" pictures in preparation for an awesome blog post:

One fingertip-dip in the tiniest dot of glue later... "Mommeee! My hand is diirrrty! I need to go waaash it!" Whine whine whine. Long story short, I was only able to get Calvin to do a few strands (Charissa was off somewhere playing with her balloon the second I finished blowing it up for her...) Not wanting to waste an entire bottle of glue I just sacrificed on a plastic plate, I proceeded to continue with mine. There are no "during" pictures because I was too busy trying to help Calvin finish the project without getting his hands "dirty" (yeah...) and my own hands were all gooey and fuzzy. We waited for our yarn mess to dry overnight and popped the balloons this morning (which Calvin thoroughly enjoyed, so I guess, not a complete flop... although I can't really say the same for Calvin's end product, see below). Here is mine:

Not horrible (I think it would have been better with "less fluffy" yarn), but not nearly as pretty or functional as these. Then there was Calvin's:

I'll leave the captioning blank on this one. This craft really is neat, just not "neat" enough for us. (I hope, for their sake, they won't have to do too many of those papier-mâché projects we were forced to do in art class some 20 or so years ago...) Ending my post here would be too discouraging (since, you know, blogging is like a mini self-esteem booster... oh yeah! I did do something else today besides catering to my childrens' every need... and guiding, correcting, and harnessing their energy and natural "tendencies"...) So, to end on a happy note: chocolate covered pretzel rods with sprinkles:

We made (and ate) these for our church's youth ministry team meeting. Very simple: Take some baker's chocolate, melt it in a pot, spoon some over a pretzel rod, roll the whole thing in sprinkles, and put on a piece of wax paper to cool and harden. Not only is this activity yummy, it is also mess free (more or less... the kids didn't seem to mind licking off the chocolate and sprinkles that "somehow" got on their fingers...)
