Cheese & Crack + Sangria + Portland Flea = Weekly Love

Ah summer!

This Week:

Bar Avignon – I love Bar Avignon, but I wish they had better happy hour prices on cheese. Regardless, summer sangria!

Cheese & Crack cheese cart – speaking of cheese, there’s a new cheese cart in town. It was $8 for a little “pizza box” full of cheese, crackers, berries, honey stick etc. I ate it all for lunch, but I’ll be back to use as picnic supplies soon!

new Townshend’s Teahouse on Division – same great tea, new cool building. I love the furniture and chill atmosphere.

evening rides & cocktails at Central – I hadn’t been to Central since last summer when we did our ‘cocktail crawl’ by bike. They took my fav (PB Jewel) off the menu, but still a great place to chill in the Ankeny alleyway.

Roman Holiday in the Park – After watching North by Northwest in the park last summer, I was super excited about Roman Holiday, however it got rained out. I hope they re-play this one at some point during the summer.

Bouldering at the Circuit – I went bouldering at the Circuit Gym on the Eastside. Fun and a good workout.

Farmer’s market picnic – PSU Farmers Market is one of my favorite ways to start a Saturday. I picked up Willamette Valley Cheese Co creamy havarti, ciabatta rolls from Pearl Bakery, rainier cherries, raspberries, blackberries, apricots, and treats from Two Tarts and then rode to the park for a picnic.

Portland Flea – I stopped by Portland Flea on Sunday, and found a cute Washington Apple crate (which of course kitty thinks I purchased for her).

Hippie Bowl – I also finally gathered the ingredients to make my own hippie bowl like some of my favorites around town. It’s kind of a combo of my favorite ingredients. Here’s my hippie bowl recipe.

What are you happy about this week?
