I’m in my beloved Portland for a conference. I miss my family. The complimentary coffee is pretty bad, and if I hear the words “web strategy” or “content collaboration” again, I will scream.
Also, bonus points to anyone who knows what API, CMS, or MOOC stands for. And don’t think I’ll give you any hints because I don’t know what they mean either.
But the food? Oh, the food. I do love my Portland food.
Today, for What I Ate Wednesday, some thoughts on food in Portland.
Thought #1: Conference breakfasts aren’t always awful.
Don’t get me wrong. There was a bevy of breakfast meats and pastries on display. However, at the end of the buffet was a big pot of Bob’s Red Mill steel cut oats, strawberries and caramelized pecans. Delicious.
Thought #2: I’m not the only one who takes pictures of the food I eat.
Coffee and treats with my friend, Gabs at my absolute favorite Crema. I love love their Spanish latte.
Thought #3: When inviting a friend to lunch, you should always choose someone who likes the same flavors you do so that you can share.
Blossoming Lotus~ we shared the Fig/Brie sandwich and the Thai wrap. We loved both, but the Fig/Brie sandwich was the ultimate winner.
Thought #4: Best fall drink I’ve had yet this season=Pumpkin Chai latte
Also, the best accompaniment to a Pumpkin Chai latte is gossip with a good friend:)
Thought #5: You shouldn’t even step into a dressing room to try on patterned leggings after eating an enormous Chipotle bowl.
You will regret it.
Bad news? I’m. Uncomfortably. Full.
Good news? No patterned leggings.
