ANNIVERSARY adventure.

One of those night we wanted to try something new and it didn’t work out.  After all thank goodness are in the city filled with plenty of restaurants to try out right?  As the night continued we ended up at Bamboo Sushi on 23rd.  I must say my half and I were more than satisfied.  30 min wait? Ohhhh that was a YES, please take our name down for us since the other two places were 40 mins to 2.5 hrs.  Ordered our drinks as we waited and oh did my lychee martini made my experience that much more enjoyable.  Sat down and the half went bonkers on ordering our food.  I must say every dish ordered was satisfying.  The service was great and the food was a bonus.  Overall experience was awesome…you bet we will be back!  Cheers to an additional year to our life together.  Below are the starters and dishes we ordered (the lights were dimmed and romantic).  The edamame was on the house! Quite rare at many japanese restaurants now and days.  MUST try if you live here or are dropping into Portland on one of your adventures.  You won’t be dissappointed.bamboosushi_tee2enivsage

We ordered a pie topped with sweet fennel sausage, roasted peppers, provolone and the love added prosciutto. Such a nice touch to our pie–it was complete and tasty.

What’s on the IG lately?

INSTAPICS_TEE2ENVISAGE

The weeks of drowning the negatives with positives; great crafts was birth from it.  Who said good things doesn’t come out of bad situations do not know how to see the silver lining in the storm.  All in the midst of cleansing my body from toxins, there are rough days.  I was tired of just letting it take control of my life.  For the last two weeks I fought back.  My energy was quickly put towards counting my blessings, utilizing my right hemisphere of the brain to create, and last but not least sharing it with my WordPress family.  A neglect to my followers was not a choice.  As I took a look back on my instagram photos, I thought to myself, “Its time to do a Instapic update”.    AND here you have it!  Crafts and snacks has been of my favorites as of late.  Can you tell or need I say nothing?  Thank God for the existence of creativity and what we can do with it.  What have you been creating?  Please share.  Hope you have a HAPPY  and GREAT Saturday!!

LOVE for pastries.

Sunday afternoon after church…my half and I needed to feed our tummy.  Today was a day I didn’t want to pick a place. My lovely took the honor and thought of a French Bakery.  I suddenly thought…Oooooo croissants.  NOT just any croissants–the ones that is crispy, buttery, and just the right amount of flakes.  NUVREI definitely fulfilled all of the above.  My new found love of NUVREI.  I will surely be back again.  I love the simple arrow stamp on the to GO bags.  It made me feel like I went shopping for some fancy item.  My love got the pear danish and I of course went for the almond croissant!  Soo YUM!

Small and cute place to chat it up with a girlfriend or enjoy the goods with your half.  Great Sunday fun day.  Hope yours was as well.

RADICCHIO EGG SALAD

A salad at Tasty and alder left me craving for more…I had to replicate it.

It is so simple and delish.  I made it for dinner two nights ago as a side salad.
