We're moving to Palatable PortlandLike everyone else, those Fabulous Food Network Awards convinced us: Sweets and I are moving to Portland Oregon.

Well not exactly our true motivation, but the result is still the same.

The energy has been crackling here with moving plans.

Mixed in with the excitement is the sour news that Sweets and I will be maintaining separate households for two months. Swirled in with the procedures of removing myself from my home of 14 years, this is a big change for us.

Eugene’s small size has made it easy for me to feel like a big fish. My aquarium is about to get much larger!
I can’t help but also worry wonder how well my blog will keep a float in the new currents.

But aren’t we all just a drop in the blogging ocean?
Or is that a chip in the cookie batter? :)

Best of luck with your move – and here’s hoping that the next 2 months just fly by in all the excitement!

Congrats on the new move, that is exciting! I can relate to the moving stress (and 14 years, whoa), but at the end of it is a grand new adventure. I’ll look forward to your Portland explorations. Best of luck with the packing!

Oh too bad! Eugene IS SO MUCH BETTER! (Hehe! It is one of my true loves, though…) Best of luck of course though!!! I love moving and changing everything.

Well, welcome! Make sure you put the St. Honore Boulangerie on your list – a bit ‘Pearlized,’ but worth it. My latest post has details.

I look forward to your progress, and frankly, am experiencing pangs of envy. So many farms, so little time.

Awesome! Why does it seem that all the cool kids live in Portland?

I post regularly on PortlandFood.org, and I want to extend a personal invitation to you to come visit our site.

We are a group of people that get together at least monthly to eat. In between, we chat about what we’re eating and where we are eating.

Welcome to Portland!


Thanks for the personal welcome! Portland Food and Drink is a great gang of foodinistas. Look forward to now knowing what everyone is talking about ;)

We had such a lovely time in both Portland and Eugene. Thank you for the food suggestions. Both had wonderful food (incredible, really), but with Portland being so much larger . . . yeah, it took the cake. :) If my husband can find a job he wants in his field when he finishes his Ph.D., we are now looking to Portland as our next locale.
