I've been eating a helluvalot of dumplings lately. Because they're fucking awesome.  Our latest find is Pinch Gourmet Dumplings.  They don't have a store front, you can't find their dumplings in a store, they don't have a brick and mortar location.  From now until November, you can only find them at the Mid Pike Plaza Farmer's Market on Rockville Pike on Saturdays from 9am-2pm.

But enough about that, let's talk about the dumplings!  These are seriously some of the best I've had in this area.  We had the pork with shrimp and lamb with carrots.  The dumpling skins are all hand rolled and pinched and ever so thin.  Sometimes when you get dumplings, the wrapper is chewy and oily and totally gets in the way of the flavor of the filling.  But these wrappers were perfectly made to let the filling shine through.  And shine they did.  The pork matched perfectly with the shrimp and just melted in the mouth.  The lamb had a bit of soup along with it that just enhanced the oily flavor.  If we didn't have a party to go to later in the evening, I would have ordered a large bucket full and eaten them right there in the market.

If you are a dumpling fanatic like I am, you owe it to yourself to get out to the Mid Pike Plaza Farmer's Market and get yourself ALL THE DUMPLINGS!  And be sure to follow them on Facebook and Twitter to find out where they'll be next.

Hello YP Fam!

So clearly, I haven't been around the site much. I still answer the occasional comment that pops up, but I haven't posted anything proper in a good long while. I didn't want to sound like I'm making excuses, but I think maybe it's worth it to just let you know what's been going on.

Good stuff! But super busy!!

So me and my friend Jeremy Whitely have landed a three book deal for a property that we've been pitching for a while. And I'm in the thick of inking pages right now. I probably won't be done until end of this year, early next which is why I haven't had a chance to get back to YP in a while now.

I usually have a bajillion things going on all at once which should come as not small surprise. But I've dropped a lot of extra stuff (haven't even blogged in months) to concentrate on getting this first book done and I'm still running behind, even with 3am being a very familiar time of day for me.

I do plan on getting to YP once this first book is turned in. And hopefully, I'll be able to time manage much better for the next two volumes so I can have some breathing space.

So that's where I've been. I haven't given up on YP, I just haven't had time to do anything else but work on this first book. I'll be pimping the shit out of it when the publisher makes the official announcement to be sure. But until then, it's back to the grind for me!

I've spent a month with the iPad Pro and have some thoughts on what types of creators will find this to be a useful tool. This would have been a very different review without the reveal of iPadOS this past week.

Please take my thoughts with many, many, MANY grains of sand. I don't have other devices to compare the Pro to so it's not a very thorough review in my mind. But I try to answer the question, "What type of creator is the iPad Pro for?"
