Soup Overflow

The sun was shining brightly in Portland today but it just might snow tomorrow! It rarely snows here and I get incredibly excited when the fluffy white flakes do fall. I grew up near Lake Erie in Pennsylvania where snow in the winter meant building snow caves in the backyard, sledding down steep hills, cross country skiing around the house, and suiting up in multiple layers of cozy (hand-me-down) winter apparel. Regardless of whether or not it snows, Tim and I have plans to go snowshoeing near Mt. Hood. In the meantime, we are fueling up on soup (more soup!) and sandwiches from Sweetpea Baking Company. We received a gift certificate for the holidays and have been enjoying bike rides over to Sweetpea for lunch.

Over the weekend we feasted on Greek Lentil Soup (my choice) and the Schwegmann, a double-decker grilled cheese sandwich (Tim’s choice, although I had several monster-sized nibbles).

I seem to have mastered the skill of taking crooked photographs! I blame my crooked shoulders.

Today we had Creamy Sweet Potato Soup and the Wilson Brothers Sandwich (thinly sliced seitan and grilled onions served with au jus). Both were excellent!

Oh, and Tim had a Chocolate Pudding Tart for dessert.

Keep your fingers crossed for snow tomorrow!
