This is the most delicious assignment I’ve had in a little while…I did not sample them all; however I did sit down at The Orangery for this very tasty treat you see first…I believe the Smoked Salmon was cooked to perfection with the slightest crunch at the end with a lemon flavor that lingered for just a couple of seconds with each bite. The poached egg was cooked to perfection as well with a creamy white and mellow yoke to ooze over the English Muffins.
This is Washington DC seen by me with just a little over an hour to spend while not on the job from last year’s assignment on “the hill.” Hope you enjoy…I was really feeling the pace of DC, life’s fleeting hour glass ticking, and the reality of catching my flight home.
