It was late in the afternoon when we arrived. My husband and I had been on the road two full days with the dogs, yes; we now have my mom’s dog Molly. She is a herder, barker and has quite the personality which is completely different from our chocolate lab Olive; who is very laid back. We’ve been traveling in our Prius stuffed to the brim for our 4 month stay in Oregon. We unloaded, fed the dogs and drove into town for a quick bite.
Next thing on the agenda was to check out the front yard and garden area. As you can see I had my work laid out for me. My next few days were very busy.
After I cleaned out and prepped the garden I planted 48 lettuce plants, some kale, edamame, beans and herbs. All I can say is that it feels wonderful to be working outdoors with my hands in the soil again.
Yesterday we drove up to the town of Newport and picked up our first whole salmon of the season....right off the boat. I decided to make Ina Garten’s fresh dill sauce after reading the rave reviews, recipe is here on-line. We baked the salmon at 425 degrees, following the Kitchn's "How to Cook Salmon in the Oven" and it was perfect.
Talk about a real treat! It's nice to be settling in.
Cheri Savory Spoon
Mysavoryspoon was first started in 2010 as a way to journal recipes that I had collected from cookbooks, magazines, family and friends. Most everything was savory, using legumes and whole grains. Along the way I discovered a love for baking. Now a couple times a month you might see some type of sweet pie or treat.
