Thanksgiving for four

We ate at both Wildfire in Tyson's with clay as our server and Maggiano's in Richmond. Both let you have extra and pack up left overs if you want. Wildfire was excellent.

Jose Andres - Restaurants - Would like to try with people from here

I loved Jaleo in DC the best. But I have enjoyed all of them. Mini bar is very expensive but probably good. Did not like American Eats at all. Some other foodies we know of about 8 one loved it others not too much. If you go there, go for dinner that seems better then lunch. But the other restaurants are much better. If you have a date in mind, my spouse and I would be glad to meet you. You will also find that the solo diner could be quite happy at the restaurants.

I used to love the slow cooker, I have two. When I retired I was given a beautiful one. Desserts are good, make the cakes that have a topping and it looks good as well. There is a chicken and rice dish in the crock pot rival cookbook that is wonderful. Make the chicken in a cooking bag with seasoning on it and poke holes in bottom of bag and rice on bottom and seasoning and juices drop to rice for flavor.

Oh wow. We plan to move within the coming year to live closer to my daughter. Medicare did get me a powerchair but they don't give ones that raise up. Also, if you offer to upgrade on your own they won't supply the chair. With tips I have gotten I have been able to cook in slow cooker and microwave. When we move I will look for accessible and see about modifications. Thank you for the information. I will save for looking for. I should be able to use a walker in a few weeks. But I can't stand long and can't walk far. So powerchair will remain a neccessity for life.

Hot breads used to be great but last time I was there it was terrible. The bread was spongy. Sauces were not the same either. I think different chef or something has changed.

Thank you all for your tips. I have been using the microwave a lot along with toaster oven and slow cooker. Didn't think if electric pan but I do have a great one. Thank you all so much. Yes I can have someone help with the oven. I have been looking into different recipes from the past.
Again thank you all. Great suggestions. I feel so much better

Anyone cooking from a wheelchair? I'm new to it. Difficult to reach much. Or to open oven door. I'm wondering if someone has been cooking from wheelchair that may have some tips. I used to be a good cook I want to start doing that again. Any tips would be appreciated

Dinner for 2 for $300 in DC/Northern VA?

Oh so sorry it wasn't good. We were there a year ago.

Serious Filipino Food at Bistro 7107 in Crystal City

Glad you enjoyed. I enjoy your reviews

Dinner for 2 for $300 in DC/Northern VA?

Loved Komi also tasting menu at city zen while original chef is still there. That may even be better. Loved that place even more. And the tasting menu at Volt was excellent. We went in a week night and were alone at the counter watching the prep work in the kitchen. Could not eat all the food. I'm trying to think of the expensive places since you have that most generous gift
Let us know where you do end up going. Enjoy!
