El Pollo Rico

Twice over the weekend I had a craving for El Pollo Rico only a ten minute drive from my house. El Pollo Rico serves Peruvian style chicken. The service is faster than your basic fast food restaurant and the food is superior. Their menu is simple: chicken is various cuts, fried potatoes or yucca, rice, cole slaw and of course some quick desserts. The chicken is cooked rotisserie style with a Peruvian spice rub. It is very tasty and superior to Guapos another Northern Virginia favorite. The best part are the sauces. Both mild and spicy are delicious and I love to dip my fried potatoes into the yellow mild sauce. Even though I had the chicken twice I already want some more!

El Pollo Rico is popular with workers on lunch break because of their fast service. If you end up using your fingers because it is that good, they have wet wipes for a quick clean up. Their rice has butter, garlic, and salt in it. Everything is delicious! Next time you come to the DC area check out El Pollo Rico (13470 Minnieville Road Woodbridge, VA 22192‎) They have another location in Arlington.

The Genius of the Sheriff of Nottingham

Robin Hood:Prince of Thieves came out in 1991 and starred Kevin Costner. It was a fun interpretation of the Robin Hood story and had great reviews and earned lots of money. It cast the popular Kevin Costner with Morgan Freeman as his wise Obi Wan Kenobi companion. Bryan Adams had a hit song "Everything I Do, I Do For You" that was over played on early nineties radio. As I was always obsessed with Medieval History I fell in love with this movie despite inaccuracies. I was 16 when I first saw it around 1992. The problem with this movie was that I fell in love with the Sheriff of Nottingham, the nasty bad guy and thought Kevin Costner's Robin Hood was a "dork". That is what happens when someone is a bad actor and this movie showed how weak Costner's acting was compared to his supporting cast and his villain, Alan Rickman. Alan Rickman "hammed" it up in this film and the audience could tell he was enjoying his role as the villain. Every line, no m

Merlin and Doctor Who

As many of you know, Doctor Who is my favorite show to watch. I started watching it a couple of years ago when I read an article that said "Weeping Angels" were the scariest monster ever shown on television. So I found the Doctor Who episode "Blink" and tried it out. After that, I got hooked and have converted many to "Whovianism" and now we watch it as a family. I started watching a new British show, Merlin and quickly discovered that many of the actors on Merlin have also been guests on Doctor Who. Here are some fun facts about Merlin actors who made surprise visits on Doctor Who.

The Evil Eye

As many of you know, I had a miscarriage last February. After it happened my husband told me that he believed that one of his co-workers gave him the evil eye after he told the person about my pregnancy. Of course, I thought that was silly but thought it interesting that my husband brought up such an old Uzbek superstition.
