I’ve been reading a lot of best of lists in the last several days, everything from albums of 2013 to recipes involving bacon. Everyone seems to be making a year end list. I thought, why not jump on the bandwagon. So here we go. This isn’t a top ten or even a list with anyContinue reading “Best Finds of 2013”
Bland. Tasteless. Usual. Rolls. Amiable. Quick. Salad. Filling. Banal. No.
Huge. Ridiculous. Tasty. Overboard. Yum. Variety. Decadent. Fried. Heavy. Yes.
Humps….. check! Really enjoyed the flavor of the meat at Humps!

Olympic Club Originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl Had a great lunch this last Sunday with our friends, Dan and Linda, their kids, Amanda and Daniel, and Kev. Really nice time with them in Centralia at the Olympic Club. Nice mid point meeting spot.
Cheers Originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl First dinner out in the big city.
Cold One, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Karen took this one inside Deschutes as we sat and enjoyed the spoils of our victory.
Deschutes, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. After the Providence Bridge Pedal we all rode our bikes an additional ten plus blocks to the Deschutes Brewery iin search of some much needed nourishment and libation. We got both.

The Tower, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. After our tubing adventure last Saturday we all went to Edgefield. The McMenamins establishment that’s out in Troutdale. I’ve never seen a group of hungrier women. We were all so famished we could have eaten almost anything. Fortunately, even though they were packed and we had to wait aContinue reading “The Tower”
Eating Out, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Outside that is. The view from our table at McMenamins. It was so nice Friday night. A nice dinner out after we’d worked around the house, in the yard, all morning. We got tons of stuff done this weekend at our place. Very satisfying. Also very satisfying to playContinue reading “Eating Out”
Out For A Walk, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Friday night, July 3, we met some friends (yo Sandy and Vicki) at the McMenamins on the Columbia over in Vancouver. It’s a great spot right on the river. We sat outside. It was grand.
Lunch With Family, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Last Saturday, the 20th, we had a little family get together (thanks again Ab for planning it out!). We met at the Ram in Salem. Nice place. Really good company. We don’t get to see each other much, the seven of us. So many busy lives, so muchContinue reading “Lunch With Family”

Yum… Tasty, Or At Least It Was, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. We stopped for breakfast at the Logger in Knappa on our way back from the clam digging adventure yesterday. Pretty good eats in a rustic ambiance. Great after a tough morning of digging up the little diggers.
Ice Cream Anyone?, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Ice cream stand in St. Petersburg, Florida. Taken February 3, 2006 with the Canon PowerShot SD500.
Nonna Emilia, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. We also went to a friend’s surprise birthday party at Nonna Emilia. She was surprised, and the food was, as always, really good.

Mama Mia, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. And again I’ll say… Happy Birthday to Me! I had a great day, ending with a very nice dinner at Mama Mia, downtown Portland.
Leave the Gun, Take the Cannoli, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. After enjoying a mini birthday party at our house and then walking around in the city, we went to dinner with friends on my birthday at Mama Mia. I had cannoli and an espresso for dessert. Both were good, but the cannoli… ah… really great.
The Mississippi Pizza Pub, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. We actually started off the evening, last night, with a stop by Phil and Steph’s house. Ok, so what happened is we knew we could probably park by their house, which we found we could, and when we did we decided we should probably stop in andContinue reading “The Mississippi Pizza Pub”
A Little Moxie, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. This place is on Mississippi Avenue in North Portland. We’ve actually never purchased anything from this place, but I want to. They offer snacks, various beverages, morning nosh (don’t you just love the word nosh) and several cool picnic tables to lounge at while enjoying their fare. KindaContinue reading “A Little Moxie”
Location: Mexican restaurant Subjects: Older couple enjoying a dinner out I’m perplexed. Ok, maybe not really perplexed. Maybe I’m just shaking my head due to the fact that there was this older couple sitting across the little aisle from us last night and they were so stereotypical of what you might expect out of peopleContinue reading “Lemon With That Water”
