October in Maryland and DC
I’m back in Maryland and D.C. for the third time this year! One of the reasons I love visiting my son is because we love eating out.
Find out about foods on my previous visits by visiting my February and July posts …
EATING OUT ~ February 2012
VACATION MEANS EATING OUT ~ July 2012
STILL TESTING FOODS OF MARYLAND ~ July 2012
So far this time, we’ve (my son and I) eaten twice at Wegmans, Columbia. Huge food bar section ~ a heavenly buffet. We (my son, my brother and his wife) dined at Red, Hot and Blue in Laurel MD. Love that place with its “pulled” meats and blues music.
Today I took a short walk to Roundz, a homey, yet classy café, market and catering establishment, less than a mile from son’s house. If you’re ever in Gambrills MD, please stop in to sample their gourmet fare and tell them you heard it from me. A new Wegmans is opening just across the highway October 28. What a great combo ~ Roundz and Wegmans!
Roundz food is yummy and inventive. For instance, most of their sweets are cut into individual pieces ~ round, of course!
Today’s coffee was 100% Columbian.
She had something brewing on the stove AND was mixing up brownies.
I want one of those hand-operated slicers. Look how it curls the slices of squash for chips!
Employees at Roundz always enjoy their work and are very welcoming to their patrons.
Mini pumpkins and Indian corn welcome the fall season. The plan is to cut out the center out of some of the pumpkins to allow for insertion of tea light candles for an upcoming “Dinner after Dark”.
