What’s for Dinner?

Not one but two luck-’o-the-Irish inspired meals! St. Paddy’s Day is just too fun to limit us – green beer, shamrock cookies, potatoes every which way…I love it all. Our local, picked-at-their-peak veggies from Hood River Organic inspire us to put it all together. And, finally, we’ll welcome the first day of spring on Thursday March 20th – yeah!!! Check out the Portland Farmers Market Blog for all of the fun and festivities that will mark the occasion at Saturday’s first market of the season. Go early, get a steaming cup of coffee, sample some delicious fresh-baked pastries and other hearty breakfast options, chat with our local farmers and see their gorgeous goods, enjoy the music, …soon enough, it’ll be time for lunch. Options abound!
