A Fancy Dinner In

I have been working up a storm. I have a store now, and I work nights sometimes for extra money, so my honey and I have had fewer meals together than we used to. So we decided, based on a bottle of wine that his parents gave us for Christmas, to plan a romantic dinner in, for two. 

we made tortillas from scratch, and roasted pork to go onto them. spicy tacos! yum. for dessert we had raspberry brownies.
and we dressed in our finest.

Burger at Le Pigeon

My shop/studio is right across the street from award winning restaurant Le Pigeon. My shopmate and I went and had a burger there and were blown away. I guess they only make 5 a night, so get there early. I love the presentation as well, the wooden plate, the knife thru the center...

Korean with Dad and my honey

I don't know why I don't eat here more often. This lovely delicious place is called Bewon, and is in NW Portland on 23rd ave. They have great lunch specials. Most of all I love the many little tastes of kimchis and beans and fish that come with each entree. I ordered the Bi Bim Bap. my favorite.

Birthday Love

My first try at Eggs Sardou. oh man.
it was Matt's 30th birthday so we spoiled him with a decadent brunch.
Matt being very serious with lovely sun stripes. Erin in the background tending the stove.
Salty dogs are a great compliment to a brunch like this.

To birthday!!!!

so, as a lover of food, I was a little distressed when my naturopath recommended that I go on the anti inflammatory diet for 3-6 weeks.
I am now on the 10th day, and finding that there are still wonderful things I can eat.
however, I haven't been taking as many pictures, I suppose there is still something missing, that flaky crust, the smelly cheese, the perfectly cooked egg....

this photo is of a peach pie I made last month for a new years day dinner when my boyfriend's parents came up to visit. it was everything a good pie should be: flaky, sweet, melting, and so comforting....

romantic winter meal

Naked Chef

My boyfriend made me a delicious burger, wearing nothing at all except a tiny apron and a big smile.
1/3 pound beef hamburger

salt and pepper
and a salad with Riverhouse blue cheese dressing!
