Not only do they serve pizza they also have biscuits.

Ohhhh my! Brussels sprout?! Ummmm YES I couldn’t pass this up. I wasn’t ever a big fan of Brussels sprout until the love cooked it for me! Ever since then, you better believe it, anything brussels sprout I am ordering! Future post on Brussel sprout to come.

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.

A touch of lemon in the water is always needed! What restaurant(s) have you tried as of late? Please share because I might just have to stop by when I am in the area.

TASTY and Alder.

Sunday was such a lovely day with beautiful weather I couldn’t resist and try out a mid-day brunch place.

Oregon is filled with so many I am slowly marking them off my bucket list. TASTY and Alder for this Sunday!

Started off with a dessert. YES! Panna Cotta. YUMMY! My older sister would sooo APPROVE of this. Dessert before your meal…because most of us never have room for dessert after my meals.

Radicchio

Radicchio* with lardons, manchego, chopped six minute egg

FriesSide of fries. Love the simple presentation.

Steak Burger

Steakhouse Sandwich on Challah.

Loooove the salad! This won me over. The steakhouse is a little heavy for me. One bite was good enough–so tasteful! My boyfriend devoured the rest.

IRVING ST KITCHEN

Post long overdue. A few weekends ago my gals and I decided to go have brunch. Irving St. Kitchen was the place to meet. Irving St Kitchen was on the top 12 brunch places MUST try in PDX on Oregonlive. We all pass by this place plenty of times and it was time to try a new brunch place.  The service and ambiance was great, and we sat in a section that almost felt like it was our own space in the restaurant. Brunch here wasn’t that bad!!  My chicken and waffle was good and the caramel sauce was so addicting! We labeled it the “crack syrup”. Here are. Few pics of what the gals and I ordered.

Start of my week- Monday INSTApic

Yesterday started off really nice–woke up sore from my training sessions.  Received this lovely card from my friend Jenny in the mail.  She never seems to fail me with her words of encouragement and the timing is just PERFECT.  Blessed to have a friend like you in my life and YES 2 years out of school and we are still keeping in contact STRONG!  Distance shouldn’t be a problem for any KIT.  I love quotes from Ralph Waldo Emerson and especially this one.  Thank you JENNY for starting my week JUST right!  All photos taken with iPhone 4.

During my lunch break I ended up at Wassabi for happy hour with a co-worker.  I was enjoying my hot water (as it was soo chilly outside even with the sun beaming) in this ceramic white teapot and teacup.

Before heading back to work there was a small park nearby and we went for a stroll.  The flowers, blue sky, and the clouds were just lovely!
