|Food of the season. Does red wine go with Oreos? Yes. Especially spooky Phantom wine and BOO Oreos. Happy Halloween!|
Away from my kitchen: food exhibits that we saw while traveling.
|The food storage and preparation area at Fort Clatsop, Oregon (reconstruction of original.)|
Lewis and Clark and the people of their expedition spent the winter of 1805-1806 in this location.
|Hood River, Oregon, The Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum.|
Among the historic planes and jeeps, we saw this display of a portable kitchen from World War II.
|Astoria, Oregon: Columbia River Maritime Museum.|
Display of labels from canning of salmon and other seafood, once a major activity along the
Columbia River. The museum had many displays about the history of the fishing industry.
|Salmon in a fish hatchery in Oregon.|
|Jam and syrups made from Oregon produce at a farm stand in|
Mount Hood, Oregon.
In my kitchen in October.
|Magnets from the trip: places in Oregon and Idaho. Also here.|
|A sample jar of Oregon marionberry jam.|
We ate it all up.
What's been cooking in my kitchen?
|Before a weekend visit from the family, my refrigerator was stuffed |
with food for the family visit.
|Red and green pasta, with garlic bread and feta cheese, for six people.|
The green pasta had broccoli, pesto, and tubetti pasta.
The red pasta had classic home-cooked tomato and mushroom sauce.
|Garnishes for a Mexican-type meal: tomatoes, salsa, sour cream,|
lemon wedges, cilantro, avocado, and hot sauce.
|Miriam's plate with a quesadilla, black beans, picadillo,|
savory squash, and all the garnishes.
|A meal for the two of us: smoked Michigan whitefish from |
the Ann Arbor Farmers Market.
|Single-serving apple crumbles.|
|Candy for trick-or-treaters. I plan to wear a mask. Not the usual sort for Halloween.|
