Summery Saturday

Our friend Tori is up for the weekend, so we decided to make it a good one. She was coming up in the morning on Saturday, so Trina and I got up early and made breakfast - coffee (of course), baked eggs with chives from our garden, bread and good creamy cheese and strawberry jam, and fresh strawberries.

From there, we hopped on the bikes and rode our way down to the Saturday Market, which had its opening in the new facilities that have been under construction. They aren't quite finished yet, but the main part where the vendors sit is finished.

On the way home, we stopped at New Seasons and picked up some bread, cheese, meat, and wine for an afternoon picnic:

We laid out a blanket by our garden and ate and drank and laid in the shade, and Trina worked on some knitting.

Finally, we came in, and I shaved to refresh myself a bit, and then we all got ready for dinner, which we had at Nuestra Cocina, one of the very best restaurants in Portland. We had carne asada, pork chops, and pan-seared halibut, and they were all amazing.

Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend!
