On the plane, armed with food mags and books

The boys were hellions this morning, and I'm not sure I've ever been so glad to say goodbye. Though I don't love to fly, I'm actually thrilled to be on the plane, in relative silence, literally heading away, away, away. I haven't flown out of Dulles in ages; the new parts are quite nice and very reminiscent of a Lego city, especially the tram which had a little fire extinguisher holder just like something you'd find in the airport set.

We have reservations at Higgins tonight, and I can't wait- have heard some great reviews! Thank you to all the enthusiastic food52ers who shared such great Portland-area info with me.

Off to my mags and books and maybe a nap. Happy Friday all!
