Despite one or two minor mishaps in the culinary process, yesterday’s momo party was awesome. Jersey Girl in Portland and I did much of the cooking, with substantial assists from almost every else, especially
Lisa Costello spent a long tiem talking to Dad.
We had yak momos, lamb momos, vegetarian momos, apple-and-cheese momos, cheese momos, a meat-and-cheece board with three kinds of bread, garden salad with nasturtiums, fresh baked chocolate chip cookies, red velvet cupcakes, miniature Mama Dudley cakes, miniature cherry pies, and, um, lots of other stuff.
Yesterday evening a bunch of the same group (including the kids) headed out to the Portland Women’s Forum Park shortly after sunset to watch the Perseids. A wonderful time was had by all there, including spotting several spectacular entry trails. This morning a slightly smaller bunch of the same group is heading for Pine State Biscuits, then hiking in the Columbia Gorge.
A wonderful weekend, all in all.
