All around the country in 12 days

It’s no secret I’ve been posting less than usual. I wish I had a really cool excuse for not being able to blog but I have 5 semi-cool excuses: NYC, Baltimore, Vancouver, Portland, California. Yep, 5 cities all around the country in 12 days.

It started in NYC for the 100 Days Out event for the Olympics in Times Sq.

And bomb veggie balls at The Meatball Shop.

Then, off to Baltimore for a little waterfront and raw bar’in at Thames Street Oyster House. 

After Baltimore, why not head to the West coast to hit up a Farmer’s Market in Vancouver, WA.

And a Sunday afternoon run with perfect scenery…can we just talk about how it was 80 degrees and sunny in WA?!

In case you’re not up on your WA geography, Portland, OR (a foodie’s dream city) is right beyond this river. Although I stayed in Vancouver, you better believe I got my eat on in Portland.

My favorite meal was at Tabla Bistro. This salad was heavenly – black kale and roasted parsnips w/ Romesco sauce and smoked salmon cream. Best salad of life. 

This Dungeness crab risotto w/ meyer lemon at The Farm Cafe was also mouth watering. Great reco from Portland foodie expert, Jessie, of Bee Rooted.

Ended on a high note at Farm Cafe with this rose creme brûlée.

We couldn’t dine in Portland without checking out Andy Ricker’s Pok Pok. Talk about authentic Thai! 

Even without all the delicious food, Portland is a truly beautiful place with lots of great hiking spots, like this one.

I would show you some pictures of California…except that I stayed in Ontario…where the local restaurant list boasts Wendy’s, Marie Callender’s, and Applebees. Needless to say, not a whole lot of blog worthy content! 

I just got back from Idaho and now I’m staying put until my vacation with Steve to Mexico! Counting down the days!

Peace, love, and food,
