Happy What’s Happenin’ Wednesday!

  • If you’re following us on Twitter, you probably already know how excited we are about the meal kits that are now being offered from Little House Green Grocery. I’m a big fan of meal delivery services like Blue Apron so I can’t wait to give this local version a try! Each kit includes ingredients and recipes for a complete meal for two.
  • In need of a smile? You should probably watch this Broadway version of Carpool Karaoke if you haven’t already seen it. Warning: I haven’t been able to get “One Day More” from Les Miserables out of my head since watching it last week.
  • You guys. I checked out the new Peter Chang spot in Scott’s Addition last week and no surprise, it was amazing. If you go, order the Szechuan cold mixed noodle snack which is a steal at only $3 in addition to being one of the best things I’ve ever eaten.
  • I’m guessing I’m not the only one who has hopped on Google while out at a restaurant before, wondering what an item or phrase on the menu meant. Enter this handy guide from OpenTable, where they decoded 25 of the most misunderstood restaurant terms.
  • If you’re craving a good sandwich for lunch, look no further than Cuisine A La Carte on Patterson Avenue. The ABC and Herb Cheese Delight are two of my favorites. They do boxed lunches, too!
  • Heading to a cookout this weekend? BuzzFeed’s got you covered with 17 tasty sides to take to a summer potluck.
  • In case you wanted to treat yo’ self (or a friend), Richmond has a new local flower delivery subscription service, Noon Flora and Bloom.
