Pacific Northwest - Sept 10-18, 2010

Oregon and Washington Highlights

Sorry for the long absence, Dinner Clubbers. Nick and I just returned from a week long trip to the Pacific Northwest to visit family and friends. We had an amazing time and took full advantage of the food and drink opportunities to be had. We started our week off right with a trip to Willamette wine country and a picnic at the lovely Domaine Serene Winery, complete with local delicacies including Tillamook cheese (we visited the creamery); a bowl of Bob's Red Mill (we visited the factory) Steel(er) Cut Oats decked out in full Steeler colors including black blackberries and yellow bananas, along with some toasted hazelnuts in honor of Dennis Dixon's start (he's from Oregon), that we ate while watching a Steeler victory; a Mighty-O doughnut from our Seattle excursion; crabs at Pike Place Market; a honey lavender ice cream sandwich with lemon cookies from Ruby Jewel in Portland; the line-up of our beer sampler at Bailey's Taproom; and a shot of the Oregon Coastline at Cape Meares. Other highlights not pictured include coffee cupping at Stumptown Coffee; tasting brandy at Clear Creek Distillery; and beer tasting at Ambacht Brewery in Hillsboro which has exclusively Belgian style faves!

We had so much fun seeing my sisters and their respective SO's, plus Dinner Clubbers Anna and Rima! Thanks to everyone for making our trip so memorable.
