Graham Crackers…

“The graham cracker was inspired by the preaching of Sylvester Graham who was part of the 19th-century temperance movement. He believed that minimizing pleasure and stimulation of all kinds, coupled with a vegetarian diet anchored by bread made from wheat coarsely ground at home, was how God intended people to live, and that following this natural law would keep people healthy. His preaching was taken up widely in the midst of the 1829–51 cholera pandemic. His followers were called Grahamites and formed one of the first vegetarian movements in America…” Wiki

Peaceful few minutes…

“Li Ziqi (Chinese: 李子柒)was born in the remote mountain village of northwestern Pingwu, Mianyang city, China. (Sorry, we can’t release much more personal information of her for protecting this beautiful girl.) She did not have a happy childhood like most of the children. When she was little, her parents got divorced and his father died early. Then, she started living with her grandparents. Their life was poor, but it was also relatively stable. Li Ziqi’s grandfather was a cook working in the countryside. When there was a ceremony going on, be it a wedding or a funeral, her grandfather would be in charge. In the videos, she showed how to cook various dishes, which she had learned from her grandfather. Besides cooking, she also learned how to make bamboo baskets, fishing, growing vegetables and doing carpenter work from her grandparents…”

Stillwater Dragon Pattern…

“Around the seel no tortur´d worm shall twine, no blood of living insects stain my line; Let me, less cruel, cast the feather´d hook, with pliant rod athward the pebbled brook. Silentt along the mazy margin stray, and with the fur-wrought fly delude the prey.”    John Gay, Rural Sports, 1720

squirrel searching…

‘OK, where’s the bird seed?’ 

The bushy tailed squirrel perused every corner of the covered patio looking for food no doubt. I took shots through a window. Eventually, the squirrel scaled my tripod and sat/stood staring at me. It was humorous combination of subject matter and a photographer’s implement.

Portland’s Food Carts

Having been born and raised in Portland, Oregon (somewhat of a rarity to find these days), I have seen the evolution of Portland in several directions…some so-so, some good. One of the finer developments in the city has been the pronounced blossoming of food at many levels..sophisticated eateries abound and my focus here, food carts. Forgive me if I leave out the obligatory, orgasmic mention of VooDoo Donuts…seriously, get over it.

Last night, my better half and I explored SE Portland down along SE Division and came upon the Tidbit Food Cart block at SE 28th Pl. It was alive and bustling on a Sunday night. A city block, once vacant, has been cleared and a circling of the food cart wagons has resulted in a pleasant arrangement, typical of Portland Food Cart corrals. 

The offerings are typical (Thai, Mexican, Central American, Scandinavian, Pizza, Beer, Sweets) but the flavors are always unique and to be savored from cart to cart as each creative maestro grills away for waiting patrons. We have visited quite a few of these food cart venues and always find the people watching, energy/vibe, pace to be very pleasing. Often there is live music.

If you are ever in Portland for an extended stay, try out one of the 500 some food carts nestled on these city lots.
