Thai X-ing

Thai X-ing (pronounced 'thai crossing') is a small and very delicious restaurant where chef/owner Taw Vigsittaboot serves traditional home-style Thai recipes passed down from his mother, aunt and grandmother in an eclectic and intimate setting. Offering a chef's choice prix fixed dinner menu only from 5:30 - 10:00 PM, you must make a reservation either online or by phone.  Sunday is vegetarian night. This style of dining allows Chef Taw more freedom in the kitchen and the family-style serving is great for groups.  Closest Metro is Shaw - Howard University.

Hops & Pops

On Wednesday, August 20, Hill Center hosted Hops & Pops - a beer and popcorn tasting - which sounded too fun to pass up. Keith and I enjoyed nine unique craft beers from around the world that were paired with popcorn from Capitol Kettle Corn. A team of beer connoisseurs were on site to walk us through the different pairings and explain why these flavors work so well together.

At Home: Coconut Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

I was always intimidated by homemade ice cream.  But I was recently gifted a neat little battery-operated ice cream machine and Keith kept asking, "when are you going to make ice cream?"  So I researched for simple recipes to try as my next experiment for What Micky Eats...At Home.  You only need five ingredients to make this creamy and dreamy Coconut Chocolate Chip Ice Cream.  It is dairy-free and can also be vegan.  Coconut and chocolate lovers will scream for this ice cream!  Makes 1 pint.
