shopping in the snow

We were caught in the blizzard of the year yesterday in Portland.  Eugene didn’t see one frozen crystal, but PDX got hit hard. I guess we picked the wrong day to go shopping, but is there ever a wrong day in the City of Roses?

At Pok Pok, we ate sour, becarrotted glass noodles (see above); bitter-green, molasses soy-laced, tofu’d up pad see euw; and an amazing Northern Thai parsnip and carrot herb salad, and then mushed our way downtown and bought so many sweaters that our appetites were revived for drinks and dinner at Clyde Common.  You MUST try the Bittersweet Symphony cocktail (Martin Miller gin, Aperol, Punt e Mes) if you go.  And the escarole Caesar-style salad with baguette and a lemony anchovy-garlic dressing was surely a highlight of an evening of wonderful things.

Didn’t have as much luck with the shoes, though.

    Visiting relatives for the day, we were caught in it too. Took us 6 hours to get home to Eugene! Glad you made a fun day of it. (-:
