Trips. Trips make me happy. Food makes me happy. Trips to places with yummy food make me ecstatic!
I was excited about my visit to Portland and put together an agenda. What was on my agenda, you ask? To eat as much as possible! I had already heard from a good friend about the Portland food scene, then my blogging friend, Ngan, posted this about her eating adventures there. Oh my gravy, I was on a mission!
Although I don’t always feel comfortable lugging my big camera around to restaurants (never, ever fancy ones!), the food spots I chose all happened to be casual enough for a few quick clicks. Casual eateries with well-prepared, quality foods are my top choice for eating establishments. How great that Portland is chock full of them!!
As I ate my way through Portland, I realized that I would need to break down my visit into manageable chunks for the blog. We (mostly I) made 14 food stops over the course of 2 1/2 days. That is far too much for one post, so I’ll be sharing my adventures by day.
Here it goes for Day 1!
I’ve never been a breakfast person. I am often too tired to chew before 10 AM, so my first meal of the day is usually lunch. Yes, yes, I know, breakfast is healthy, breakfast will rev up your metabolism, breakfast will help you make better food choices later in the day, blah blah blah. But you know what I’ve discovered? On the rare occasion that I eat breakfast, I end up being even hungrier throughout the rest of the day. It’s the darndest thing. Oh well. Anyhow, I’m telling you this to explain why my days in Portland start with lunch, not breakfast. That is all. 🙂
