Breakfast-dessert (or, almost-elevenses) on the patio while very slowly getting through morning papers. Last piece of small apricot galette made for dinner with friends last night.  The best kind of leftovers! Or, at least one of the best.....

My best haul yet from the single black currant bush on my driveway. Planning a mini batch of jam with these little gems. #drivewaygarden #eatwhatyougrow #jamtime #blackcurrants

On the menu last night: oeufs mayonnaise, with a mustardy-lemony mayo. On a bed of frisée delivered in the CSA yesterday. Served on plates pulled from the freezer. Was reading that the proper way to serve is with egg cut-side down. But I prefer this easier direct melding of mayo and yolk. Not pictured: my epic fail of a pie, which was served compote-style, the delicious marionberry-peach filling scooped over vanilla ice cream. Oh well. Always learning!!! #homecooking #oeufsmayonnaise #eggs #firstcourse

A chilled salad on tap for dinner tonight. Carrots, cucumber, radishes, shrimp, with almonds to be added later. Gathered a trio of garden herbs--Vietnamese coriander, shiso and basil--for some bright and highly aromatic character. Egad. Hope you're all managing to stay cool. #stayingcool #saladfordinner #shrimp #gardenherbs #drivewaygarden #hotoutthere

Someone (or more than one someones) takes the time to embroider thoughtful notes to share on poles around town (I saw a few in Hawthorne, at least). Such a delight to see. This one quotes Mary Oliver: "If you notice anything it leads you to notice more and more." Thanks for a really wonderful few days, Portland.

I popped in to Portland's new cookbook shop @viviennepdx Friday for a quick preview. I'll be back there today from 3:00 to 5:00 demoing a recipe from Shellfish, chatting seafood, cooking, cookbooks, all the delicious things. What a charming spot this is, right alongside the historic Hollywood theater. #cookbooks #shellfish #portland #indiebookstore

That was fun....a couple hours with Shellfish at the @flyingfishpdx Chef Shack. A special on the menu today, harissa roasted shrimp with carrots and radishes from the book. Egad, they're BIG shrimp!! (On the menu until 8:00 today.) I fueled up with the crazy-delicious grilled steelhead sandwich before starting. All kinds of fabulous. #seafood #cookbooks #shrimp #bookpromo
