What I Did On My Vacation

Last week some of my girlfriends and I left the husbands and kids at home and took a trip to beautiful Portland, Oregon.

It was undoubtedly the most fun I've had in a long, long time. We ate and shopped and ate some more (Nicholas Restaurant has out-of-this-world Lebanese and Middle Eastern food, btw).

We stopped by Powell's Books for Home & Garden on Hawthorne Street, and look what we found! It's Vegan Lunch Box right up front, with a hand-written staff recommendation sign! Woo hoo! Powell's, you so made my day!!

Right next to -- and completely overshadowing and blowing out of the water -- Jaime at Home. Go, Jen!

I live on Hawthorne, about seven blocks up from Powell's. I'm so glad my local bookstore loves your recipes as much as I do!

That is so cool! Look at you rubbing shoulders with Jamie Oliver! And your book is recommended :)

Aw, I wish I knew you were coming down, I would have said hi (if possible). I'm a Tri-City transplant in Portland, and also newly-turned vegan, partially thanks to you.

Next time you come you need to visit Food for Thought at PSU, very yummy food for cheap and ran by college students.

Yay for Powells!
