the semester that is.
and, i couldn’t be more thankful.
the past 4 months brought…
over 150 pages of written text, by yours truly.
and, an overwhelming sense of guilt.
but, it also brought…
awe inspiring dialogues.
a 1st grade internship.
lots of laughter (& drinks)
and, life long friendships.
overall, wouldn’t change a thing.
thanks to the girls that help make each day worth it. and to my guy who’s support is unending.

we happened to walk by kenny & zukes at least twice every day we were in portland. (it was located right by a favorite coffee shop – stumptown!) but it wasn’t until the last day that we were there, that we decided to stop in for a bite to eat for a late breakfast/early lunch. kenny & zukes is a well known establishment, and has seen its fair share of spotlight. it’s most notably known for it’s deli counter that specializes in pastrami and bagels! a jewish deli in portland. awesome.
when we sat down, we were faced with the decisions of yummy breakfast dishes or large deli sandwiches. i opted for a chicken salad sandwich and james chose the pastrami breakfast hash with a jalapeño bagel on the side. the meals were good and filling. i think i liked james’ more than my own. or perhaps i was just still craving these donuts!

it is no secret that james and i love a good market. especially if it’s centered around fresh produce from local farmers – as is evident from our many SOWA posts. so when we found local choice produce market on our first real day there, we were obviously obligated to pop in and see what this place was all about. what we found made it one of our top favorite spots in portland.
think about a small family owned farm stand. your favorite local coffee shop. your nearby watering hole (beer/wine). and the place on the corner where you get awesome sandwiches & salad. now take all of that and put it under one roof. and voila, you have local choice produce market.
cheers, portland. you win.
