Flowers Restaurant, Seattle
once again, I’m back after a bit out of town. this time, it was for a few days in Seattle. while I was there, I decided my next realistic dream job involves frequent travel and keeping Portland as my home base. I certainly can’t afford to travel recreationally as much as I’d like, and I’m fortunate that my current job lets me travel a bit. I’m getting the teeniest bit restless living here for 5+ years, but it’s Portland! It’s amazing! Quality of Life! etc. etc. etc.
that being said, I have three travels’ worth of photos and thoughts to unload soon via flickr, this site and stumptown vegans! I’m hoping to get back to normal life and do this sooner than later. rationally speaking, naming my flickr photos should not overwhelm me!
heading into overwhelmingly awesome plans, Portland’s Inaugural Vegan Iron Chef is officially happening on Sunday, June 6th, 2010 in the early evening.
It’s being presented by Try Vegan PDX, and I am beyond ecstatic about it. The official contestant invites went out yesterday! So many wonderful local vegans are already involved!
a few recent photos to get back into the swing of things…
Smokey Split Pea Soup, from Isa’s Test Kitchen
Soy Latte from K&F Coffeehouse in Portland
Dr. Cow Nut Cheese with Hemp Seeds from Lifethyme in NYC – my first time trying this, call me a fan! It’s sitting on top of a raw apple cranberry treat from Lifethyme, too.
My sister, Jen, agreeing to visit Vegetarian Dim Sum House in NYC, yet again. She’s a hip little flexitarian, and enjoys the Roasted Pork Buns and main dishes here.
Of course, something like this, which Millie and I really enjoyed, horrifies her.
Oasis Falafel, Brooklyn, NY. This was GREAT at midnight after a long night, but made me incredibly sick. fun times!
so much more to come.
