Catching Up

Can you believe how quickly April is disappearing?! I am very excited for warmer weather, lots of bike rides, and a month-long road trip Tim and I will be taking soon. But, for now, here are some highlights from the past few weeks:

Beautiful Portland sunset taken from my kitchen window


View of the Astoria Bridge and the meeting of the Columbia River and Pacific Ocean (taken from the top of the Astoria Column in Astoria, OR)

Bald Eagle at Fort Stevens State Park on the Oregon Coast

Relaxing under the St. John’s Bridge at Cathedral Park

Tim and his dream bike – We spent an afternoon with my dad (who was visiting from out of town) at some crazy auto-themed flea market at the Portland International Raceway. There was more than enough weird stuff for sale. I saw the coolest El Camino.

Mini gluten-free cutout cookies (I may have eaten the whole batch…)

Shanghai Noodle Bowl = brown rice noodles + lots of shiitake mushrooms + kale + marinated soy curls + tasty sauce

Tomorrow I am spending a majority of the day baking in my kitchen. The World Wide Vegan Bake Sale is happening in Portland on Sunday (Happy Earth Day!!!) and I am bringing plenty of yummy treats! So far my list includes: Lovely Lemon Cupcakes, Pizza Rolls, Chocolate Caramel Cookie Bars, Snickerdoodles, and maybe Ginger Cookies!!! I plan on taking lots of pictures while simultaneously devouring treats, so stay tuned for a recap of the event next week!!

Happy Weekend!!!
