While We're on the Subject of Food...

We were, weren't we? I, at least, usually am. So. While in Cleveland, my parents treated us to meals at two of Michael Symon's restuarants, B Spot and Lola. B Spot was good (what a beer list that place has), and Lola was great.

The night we arrived back in Portland, we had dinner at County Cat, a newish-to-us favorite that I've been meaning to mention. I highly recommend their Monday and Tuesday night specials.


Dinners otherwise have been at home and simple. Last night, shrimp, mango, white corn, and cilantro quesadillas. Tonight, pasta salad with chicken, kalamata olives, feta, peas, and red pepper. What's been on your table recently?

i've been in a food slump due to the opressive heat we've been experiencing, but that pasta salad sure looks refreshing! I think I know what we'll be eating tonight.

Asparagus, asparagus, and more asparagus! Luckily I never get tired of it. And now local strawberries are in. This weekend I'll probably be cleaning and freezing a flat of them. We eat them with "Swedish cream"--whipped cream with a little sour cream and honey mixed in.

That pasta salad photo is making me hungry!

Too many cookies! Working on some magazine articles that require baking holiday treats.

Today is all about pulled pork, coleslaw, and lemon cake. It's The Monster's birthday party.

i am making that pasta salad! i think i may have a cure for my picky stomach (it's not usually picky, but it's summer and with being preggo, i've been up and down with what i want).

i aim for choices that are healthy because all i really want is crappy food and we all know how that makes us feel! blech.

great post, chick!

So good! tonight it's Rogan Josh with lamb we bought from a friend who raises sheep and pigs. And last week the highlight was a kick a$$ roast chicken.. I kind of love cooking...

Smitten Kitchen's shaved asparagus pizza. With her dough as well. Delicious.
