Our sun-soaked weekend was filled with time spent outdoors (as well as some much needed study time). Here’s some pics and highlights!
Friday evening beer at the Captured By Porches Beer Bus. I love being able to walk to this place and enjoy a drink outside at the patio tables.
And beer just tastes better when served in a mason jar, don’t you think?
Followed by homemade veggie pizza.
This one was topped with shiitake mushrooms, red onions, red bell pepper, sun-dried tomatoes, and fresh mozzarella.
A 5 mile run at Forest Park.
I ran the Wildwood Trail which has a fairly steep incline once you get a couple miles in. Whew, I was huffin’ and puffin’, but was rewarded with an easy breezy run back down.
Portland Farmer’s Market
Our bounty – sunflower sprouts, kale, arugula, sharp cheddar, eggs and hazelnuts.
Lunch salad – spinach, blue cheese, chicken, avocado, dried cherries and a sprinkle of himalayan sea salt.
Sushi date night.
We tried out Yoko’s sushi in Southeast, and we were served by Yoko herself at the sushi bar. They had an amazing special roll with tuna and tempura asparagus.
Afterwards, we saw Noah. My opinion – pretty good, but definitely no epic movie like Gladiator or Braveheart, if that’s what you’ve heard.
Sunday morning pancakes.
And a Sunday evening picnic at Mt. Tabor.
Picnic goodies – cheese, grapes, hummus, pita chips, olives, and kombucha.
It was so nice not to be trapped indoors this weekend due to clouds and rain (which I think are returning this week). When does summer start again?
