Trader Joe's French Onion Macaroni & Cheese When Chef Dolores was out shopping, she picked up a package of Trader Joe's French Onion Macaroni & Cheese to try as a side dish. We enjoyed it and you may wish to sample it. The package says it contains 2.5 servings but it should easily be enough for 3 servings as a side. Orchid, Longwood Gardens, Kennett Square, Pennsylvania USA IMG 1270Canon PowerShot G11 CameraPhotograph by Roy KelleyRoy and Dolores Kelley Photographs

Beer Recommendation: Yards Brewing Company Washington's PorterChef Dolores served sandwiches for our lunch at home. Our beer selection was Washington's Porter from Yards Brewing Company in Philadelphia. This is an easy beer to recommend. Drink responsibly: 7% Alc. by Vol. Click on the link to reach the website. Detailed in a letter from the General to his officers during the war, Washington’s recipe employed molasses to aid fermentation and give rich caramel aroma to this robust, roasty ale. The recipe reflected his admiration for Philadelphia-style porters, especially those brewed by Robert Hare. Our Porter, inspired by Washington’s, is dark, smooth and complex with just a hint of dried fruit in the finish. Orchids, Longwood Gardens, Kennett Square, Pennsylvania USA IMG 1268Canon Power...
