What I Ate and What’s Coming Up

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.
