Yesterday was supposed to be a scorcher(it was not) so we headed out to find a spot by the river past Steven's Pass. The weather people were sooo wrong! It stayed cloudy, and cool, and the best part is it started raining by the time we found access to any water! It was just one of those things where you have to laugh. We did mill around and look at the pristine water, and dream of warmer days.
There was a very small town called Granite Falls which was the last sign of civilization before we got to the river. We stopped to get lunch at a very small grocery store called IGA. This store was tiny, and very meaty and seafood-y. I felt fortunate that I was able to score a baguette with some Sabra hummus. But I have to give this store credit, because in what was a very small bulk section, I spied nutritional yeast! I'm in Washington now! I still am having those moments where I snap out of it and am reminded that I am not in Erie anymore. It's always such a great feeling!
There is an area near the recycling bins at my apartment complex where people put stuff they don't want anymore. Well, yesterday was my lucky day, when I came home there was a huge pot with organic basil, and oregano just sitting there, waiting for a new home!
I have some recipes floating around in my head, so hopefully I will have some fun food to share over the next couple of days!
