Autumn has officially arrived -- the Redskins have lost to a perennial doormat, we're talking about fiscal year-end concerns , and it's no longer necessary to run the air conditioning all day, every day. Although it's not as if a lack of air conditioning will be anything different for Metrorail cars, many of which didn't have effective cooling over the course of this historically hot summer. The blogger behind the Twitter handle FixWMATA has been collecting complaints about so-dubbed "hot cars" all summer via Twitter, and released the complete list of offending vehicles this afternoon. It's an interesting to see which line boasts the most sauna-esque cars (that would be the Orange), which series of cars had the least complaints (surprisingly the 2000 Series, which no one complained about once) and which single car had the most complaints levied against it (WMATA: please go fix car number 6149, which was reported for its excessive heat four separate times between July and September).

Arby's is promoting its Roastburger sandwich as "the burger done better." Well, we're taking the so-called "burger done better" and doing it MUCH better. Check it out...

In a bowl stir together the brown sugar, 1/2 stick of the butter, the graham cracker crumbs, and the peanut butter until the mixture is smooth and chill the mixture, covered, for 1 hour, or until it is firm enough to form into balls. Form teaspoonfuls of the mixture into balls and transfer the balls as they are formed to a baking sheet lined with wax paper. In a metal bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water melt the chocolate chips with the remaining 3/4 stick butter, stirring until the mixture is smooth, and let the chocolate mixture cool. Dip the balls into the chocolate mixture with a fork, coating them well and letting the excess drip off, transfer them as they are coated to the baking sheet, and chill them, covered loosely, for at least 1 hour or overnight. (The balls may be double-dipped if desired.)

Mac 'n' Cheese Splurge Day Recipe: Our indulgent day Macaroni and Cheese is rich and complex, thanks to plenty of butter, whole milk, and two kinds of cheese: Cheddar and Parmigiano-Reggiano.

Any Day Recipe: The cheesy sauce for every day Mac 'n' Cheese Minis is made with chicken broth, brandy, and garlic (all of which boost flavor without adding too many calories) and a blend of full-fat and low-fat cheeses.
