Today we had a very nice light lunch of leftover homemade bread + a potato and chicken soup improvised from one of the soup-making techniques in this excellent soup book. The plates looked so pretty together on the counter, I had to take a photo.
I'm doing as hoped/planned in yesterday's post (drawing/reading/listening), but I thought I'd hop on and ask for some advice. Any Portlander's (the Oregon variety for now) out there, we need some armchair travel agents to represent for their favorite Portland restaurants/shops/haunts. Portland aficionados, feel free to chime in, too of course!
General advice is very appreciated, as well as specific recommendations. We're flying out to that fair city on Friday, and we have this wee book which is full of nice suggestions, but I trust you guys more than that little tome. Are there any particular neighborhoods/areas we should definitely visit? I mean, house-neighborhoods, not just shopping neighborhoods.
I'm excited to hear what you have to say, and am also very excited about our "interview" with Portland.
