Yard Fresh Pt. 19

February 6th, 2012

One of our best skillet breakfasts to date -- pulled pork, cheddar, onion and eggs.

We’ve gotten a lot of good news in the past few weeks — one of the biggest causes for celebration being McSweeney’s picking up the Toro Bravo Cookbook that I’m writing with John Gorham, with photography by David Lanthan Reamer and illustrations by Tyler Adams! (We’re busy working on it now and it comes out in fall 2013.) With all of that celebrating comes a certain number of meals out and cava corks popped.

Still, we’ve made some tasty food at home as always and below is some of what we’ve been cooking. Hope that you’re doing well and eating well too. Please chime in with anything you’ve cooked lately that you’ve loved.

This was our first meal with the spicy pulled pork that I recently made -- straight up on a bun with spicy garlic dills.

Then we had it over turmeric rice and that was great for all of the sauce.

This Meyer lemon miso pasta with hazelnuts, carrots and cilantro was really fresh and tasty.

And so was this saute of turkey and brussels sprouts with a light gravy over rice.

We make this sort of a snack platter a lot in the winter -- cheese breads with grated onion, homemade pickled beets and honeycrisp apple.

Dungeness drizzled in Meyer lemon butter on a soft Viet-French baguette with mayo and Sriracha. So fucking good.

Grizzly Tattoo Opening Party Redux

June 13th, 2011

So many good eats at Grizzly Tattoo's opening party!

Wow, what a party! My boyfriend Tyler Adams’ new North Williams Ave. tattoo shop — Grizzly Tattoo — opened with a bang a little over a week ago and a lot of you were there, and then some. Hundreds came out to celebrate and I’ve included a few peeks into the night below. (I only took a few photos at the very beginning because it quickly got too crowded. I also wrote about the party here.) Awesome!

We reached out to neighborhood businesses for food and drink donations and holy bleep they rose to the occasion. (Tyler tattoos a lot of food and drink folks in town.)

On the food and drink donation front we had Yaquina Bay oysters on the half-shell hand delivered by EaT Oyster Bar owners Ethan and Tobias; chicken liver sherry mousse, poached almonds, pickled cuke and more from Tasty n Sons, a keg of lager from Hopworks BikeBar, pulled pork sliders and traditional sliders from Che Cafe food cart, all sorts of sweets from Pix Patisserie and Jaime Henderson, secret loveliness from The Bye & Bye, mini pies from Loly LeBlanc, delicious mustards from Creaux Creole Mustard and the list goes on. Wow.

I also made a few things myself — a gallon of pickled asparagus (from our neighbor’s friend’s farm), a gallon of pickled beets and two tapenades — one with anchovies and one vegan. Oh, and Faulkner Short’s photography will be up in the shop for several weeks so stop by and check it out. There are some really nice photos for sale.

Thank you to everyone who donated! Thank you to everyone who came out for the party! Thank you Portland! Go Grrrrrizzly!

Thank you so much for donating food and drink to Grizzly Tattoo's opening party!

More deliciousness from Grizzly Tattoo's opening party!

A few minutes into the party. Got too crowded to take pics shortly after...

I called dibs on the first tattoo at Grizzly Tattoo so Tyler gave me these feathers. Black and blue. Love it.

Grizzly Tattoo Opening Party Friday, June 3rd 7pm-late

May 30th, 2011

My boyfriend Tyler Adams is opening a new Portland tattoo shop — Grizzly Tattoo — on North Williams (next to Hopworks BikeBar in the newly constructed EcoFlats building) and he’s celebrating with an opening party this Friday, June 3rd 7pm till late that you and all your friends and family (and their friends and family…) are invited to! Hope you can come out and help us celebrate with food, drink, music, a photography show by our friend Faulkner Short, musical styling by our friend Rale Sidebottom and a tattoo giveaway.

Hopworks Urban Brewery has been generous enough to donate a keg of their delicious lager for the event, and Tasty n Sons, The Bye & Bye, Pix Patisserie, Che Cafe food cart and Jamie Henderson are being the best neighbors in the world by donating some of their delicious food. So come on out and eat, drink and be hairy with Grizzly!

I’m so happy that Tyler is in the same neighborhood as the lovely folks at Tasty n Sons, Pix Patisserie, Lodekka double decker dress shop (they’re having a party on Saturday, June 4th!), EaT Oyster Bar, Che Cafe food cart and then some.

Here’s to Grrrrrrizzly! Grrrr!

Grizzly Tattoo shaping up. I took this photo last Friday -- a week before the opening party THIS Friday! No sleep till Grizzly!
