Portland, Oregon, July 11, 2011—WELL, BEANS AND PORK is closer to the truth: white beans and some onion, cooked, then simmered with thyme and oregano, and bits of delicious browned chorizo — I've come to think of Portland as Sausage City. Chard from the garden. Pickled green beans and carrots. Green salad.
Dessert: summer pudding — red currants and raspberries, pressed into white bread, weghted, and chilled, served with whipped cream. Marvelous.
