I feel like I’ve been eating my way through the Portland and Salem metro areas. We’ve been trying out the various Pho places near where we live – and have found a definite favorite. We have at least one more to try. I’ve also been traveling quite a bit – I was fortunate to spend the morning in Salem at my favorite coffee shop: Archive Coffee. In addition to making a perfect dry cappuccino, they also serve amazing scones and muffins – each with a particular herb or spice featured.
Saturday was all about the farmer’s market. Asparagus is in season here – I think we may have bought three pounds of asparagus – not sure what we’re going to do with it all. I think there is a fermented asparagus recipe in my future.
Sunday was all about dim sum. We went to the House of Louie in downtown Portland and ate, and ate, and ate some more. I am not entirely sure what we ate – I just know it was all so good.
We went to dim sum with my cousin and her significant other. She sent us on our way after with a cherry tomato plant, because it’s planting time, and a home-brewed, micro-brew IPA.
But Monday is looming, so it’s back to little lunches. Coming up this week: a recipe featuring morels! And one with pickles! It’s going to be a tasty week.
