Another Reminder

If anyone really needs it...this is the view looking out a window at Pearl Bakery, one of Portland's very best for breads and pastries. I suppose it can't hurt to remind people, though I suspect they're preaching to the choir!

Fall at the Farmers Market

This picture is from the second to last (for 2005)Wednesday market in Portland...a sure sign that summer is over (apparently I'm a bit in denial)! Luckily, there are things to enjoy about each season--and mushrooms are one of the Pacific Northwest fall's pleasures. This weekend we got one of our favorite phone calls: "Do you want some chanterelles? We picked too many to use, so come get some." That helps us forget one of fall's displeasures--the end of baseball season, a little early this year, for a Red Sox fan.
