Out to Lunch in the Rainy City

As usual, today has revolved around food. While I was waiting for people to wake up, I made breakfast. Brie & pomegranate on toast.

We chose a bakery/restaurant called La Petite Provence.

IMG_0128After much debate, I chose the Provence BLT croissant sans the B and a side salad. It had avocado, fried egg, lettuce, tomato and basil aioli. Very happy with this life choice.

We stopped in the Portland grocery co-op and admired their exhaustive collection of seeds, grains and other millet-like goods all lined up, not unlike a candy store. You’re guaranteed to always find something new and unique when exploring Portland.
