My Feast Portland 2014: Oregon Grand Bounty Tasting

October 1, 2014

After an evening of Feasting on sandwiches in Director Park at the Feast Portland 2014 Sandwich Invitational, I returned downtown for more adventures at the Oregon Grand Bounty Tasting in Portland’s living room: Pioneer Courthouse Square. There, under sunny skies (and shaded cover of tents), every food and drink you could wish for from Oregon producers: wine and cheese, berries and beer, coffee and cakes and cookies and crackers, wild game and wild combinations.

(Shhh…don’t tell anyone, but I felt a little bit like Templeton in Charlotte’s Web.)

My Feast Portland 2014

September 28, 2014

Ted and I were traveling overseas during the inaugural Feast Portland 2012, and I salivated from afar as Oregon’s lavish bounty was shared with the world and splashed across the internet. In 2013, I wistfully wished to be tasting flavors and sharing stories in person…but I was occupied with the primary mission of getting to know (and feed!) my new little person, babyOregonian, who joined our family just two days before the Feast kick-off.

The third year was the charm! This time, 2014, I was so happy to make good on the mission to experience this terrific new Portland tradition and to share the fun with friends at home and around the world.

For peeks into the festivities, see my updates from:

and my ultimate favorite: Tillamook Brunch Village

Weekend Update: A House, a Feast, a Tour, and a Dig

August 24, 2014

How is it possibly already the last Sunday afternoon before Labor Day Weekend?

When we were traveling non-stop for a year, I remember a few occasions where I tabled the regular posts (read: backlogged adventures) and just served up a few notes about the present. I’m back in those shoes today: still having fun sorting posts from our British Columbia trip, but positively brimming with updates about what’s going on this month and next!

From this morning’s visit to Joseph Wood Hill Park on the top of Rocky Butte, looking out over our potential new neighborhood*… Continue Reading…
