Lately, Josiah has been making a variation on the Neely's corn chowder that I am just nuts about.
Also on the local eats front, we went to Dove Vivi a few nights ago with the B's, and...boy - their specialty cornmeal crust pizza is pretty otherworldly. I've always assumed that regular ol' pizza was already as comfort food-y as it could get, but their buttery, almost quiche-like pies turned the comfort factor up to 11. I got leeks, red pepper, pesto and feta and it was outstanding - although very rich. Just one more excellent Portland eatery...we are some of the luckiest ducks as far as restaurants go.
And thank you so much for all the excitement and kind words about the upcoming show! I hope everyone local (and semi-local) can be there...and of course, I'll keep everyone posted as we get closer to June 4th.
