It's the same as on sliced squash - the spaghetti aspect is a device to cut squash in strands

This is the second recommendation I've seen for spaghetti squash in the last few weeks. Does it taste noticeably different from regular spaghetti?

That device is called a "fork".

I've been to Gilroy, CA on a couple of times on a garlic haj.  Hawaii is probably a somewhat nicer setting than the chemical wastelands of the central valley.

I made this great recipe tonight and 2IPAs was doing handstands.  It was very easy to make:

6.   1 teaspoon chipotle powder
7.   1 teaspoon cinnamon
8.   1 teaspoon coriander
9.   1 teaspoon black pepper
10.   4 strips bacon  (can double - using 2 bacon strips per piece of fish)
11.   Salt and pepper to taste

Directions
1.   1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
2.   2. Rinse the mahi-mahi under cold water, and pat dry.
3.   3. Cut the mahi-mahi into four equal portions.
4.   4. Season each filet with the BBQ Blend Spice Mix.
5.   5. Wrap each filet with a strip of bacon, and top with additional salt and pepper to taste.
6.   6. Bake the filets in a baking dish for 25-30 minutes until the fish easily flakes.

I hear you can substitute dolphin or dorado, and it's almost as good.      8)

   1/4 cup Panko bread crumbs
   1 pack of bacon
   1 bottle of BBQ sauce

2.  Procedure

al forno in Providence is pretty well known in New England and rates very highly.  Santarpios in East Boston used to be a go to (along with the European) for me in the '80s.  Mike Eruzione's dad used to be a bartender there.  I think in miracle on ice they cut to santarpios.  They are right by the old tunnels.  Pepe's, of course, is on the list.

Had this as a side last night.  Simple, easy and delicious.  Like others on this board, I love garlic and increased it to 5 cloves.  Mixed everything well in a large bowl before putting in the baking pan.  I also used closer to 1.5 lbs of potatoes and cooked a few minutes longer than 5 minutes after returning the potatoes.

1 lb Yukon Gold/Butter Potatoes, scrubbed, unpeeled, large dice (about 4 potatoes)
3/4 cup EVOO
2 cloves Garlic, minced (about 1 Tbsp)
1 Tbsp chopped Rosemary leaves
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper

Preheat oven to 500 degrees.

Add potatoes, olive oil, garlic, rosemary, salt and pepper to pan.
Stir to combine. Arrange potatoes in single layer.

Roast in oven 20 min. Transfer potatoes to plate with slotted spoon.
Carefully drain excess oil from roasting pan. Return potatoes to pan;
roast about 5 min, until crispy on bottom and edges.

Passed through the fashionable west end of Henrico County yesterday and found some decent BBQ at "Q Barbecue".  The "braised greens with bacon" were an outstanding, tangy side dish.

I quickly exited however, had to restock my lead supply at Green Top.  I like my fishin' tackle fresh and local.

Mission BBQ at Broad and Glenside is also pretty good, and Alexander's is probably my favorite for VA style bbq.  However, I'm partial to Eastern NC style barbecue (my mom's family is from there and I grew up going to authentic NC pig pickins) and make it myself since there are no great (some good, but not great) options for NC BBQ around.

Okay, capital gang, it's that time of year again, the time for me to ask...where should I eat on my DC weekend visit?? Affordable, interesting preferred. Right now the list includes Rasika West End and maybe Jaleo or maybe not. Plus Nats Park, of course.

actually, the original Rasika is very near the Green line if you were combining it with a metro to / from the park.  Probably not, though. ;)

Jaleo doesn't really scream "affordable" but if you're willing to spend Jaleo type money, I'd go to either Zayatinya or China Chilicano. They are both also Jose Andreas restaurants, both in the same neighborhood as Jaleo (China Chilicano might even be next door to Jaleo) but with much more interesting menus. Nothing wrong with Jaleo but the menu is pretty standard tapas.

Thip Kao near Columbia Heights for Laotian if you're feeling adventurous. Their prices are a bit high compared to Laotian places in the suburbs but the food and service are top notch and you'll find some pretty interesting menu items there-- traditional Laotian, the kinds of things that scare Americans (pig ear soup, blood sausage, tripe) plus plenty of more approachable items.

If you're in town for Sunday brunch, can't really go wrong with El Centro DF on 14th Street, with unlimited small plates, sangria, and cocktails for around $40.

If you have a rental car and want affordable but tasty, there are a number of places in Leesburg that are worth eating at. Senor Ramons for tacos, Windy City Red Hots for Chicago style eats, three or four brew pubs, Melt (voted one of the top ten burger joints in the US several years running), Giovanni's (for some excellent NY Style pizza)...

Basically it depends if you're looking for the five star experience or the Guy Fieri DDD experience.

I'll hop on houston's bandwagon, me and my sisters will be there in September and one wants to eat somewhere nice and good in Georgetown but not too wild food-wise because none of us are big foodies, any suggestions?
