DC Trip

I've been in DC for a few days, for work, and it's a bittersweet feeling. First, even though I love to travel, I immediately miss my family. Also, just to walk by the White House, to see the Washington Monument, it really makes me miss our life here. There is just so much history here, so many things to see just walking around randomly. There's even wine country all around and tons of great trail running.

For dinner one night, I stopped in at Chop't, a custom salad company. Starting with a green (I opted for spinach), there is a large menu of toppings to choose from, followed by a choice of dressing (32 by my count). On my spinach, I selected beets, granny apples, red onions, and sunflower seeds, with a steakhouse blue cheese dressing. The salad is then chopped on the counter, placed in a bowl, then tossed with the dressing. Except for the dressing, I thought the salad tasted great and really liked the whole process. Neat concept, executed pretty well, good place to try when you're feeling healthy.

Work has been good as well, nothing like feeling that I'm making a difference.

  1. Funny, you're in DC and I'm in the midwest right now! I think you guys should move back--my county is just up the road. Great schools, great running, good weather. Maryland wine. Oops, maybe not.

  2. Chop't - What a great idea! I would love a place like that.

  3. have a wonderful trip. be safe - you'll be back in the arms of your loved ones soon. :)

  4. Happy it's been a good, worthwhile trip - looking forward to your return:)

  5. Wow. That salad looks fabulous!! Such a cool place (cool name too)!

  6. that restaurant sounds cool. i wish we had more options like that down south! unfortunately, fried foods are a bit more popular...
