Thursday, May 26th, 2005

My most recent trip up to Portland ended up fairly different from my expectations. My plan was to have a fun day downtown eating up time while my Sweets was taking a motorcycle skills class, however a tummy bug wanted more say in my day’s plans.

As fun as that was, it’s nothing compared to the great latte’s pulled at Seattle’s Victrola Coffee, whose original latte image I played with. How many coffee stores do [...]

Poppy Seed Sweet Onion Risotto

Monday, May 9th, 2005

I’m trying not to mope… I understand that we reeeaally need all the rain we can get. Oregon entered spring in pretty dire drought conditions, conditions that will effect our salmon runs and beer prices for the worse. I understand the benefits of this weather we are currently having.
