Food & Drink

I'm Chris - or Christopher - or Mr. Dean - or Master Christopher - or just plain Sir. I'm a self-professed foodie. I love to cook and I take great pleasure in all things edible. My husband and I are relatively new to Portland, Oregon and are enjoying our culinary explorations of the area!

Food is NOT just fuel!

Two weeks - I should be ashamed of myself that I haven't updated this blog in two weeks. Things have been insanely hectic with the end of school, work and the pending move in 1 1/2 weeks. So I've allowed my blog to be pushed back on my priority list (not to mention I've been cooking less as well). However the other night I made dinner and my loving husband snapped one photo of my prep work - and he just emailed it to me, encouraging me to post it. He's so good - keeping me on my toes! So I'm going to be better - and I do plan on updating the blog with food as we travel across the country!

So the other night I had a craving for a hamburger. Diner-esque, simple, and tasty. The meat was pressed thin, and dusted with salt & pepper - that's it. White bread, onion, tomato, iceberg lettuce, ketchup & mayo. Very soul-filling.

And no pic of the finished product, but here's my workspace! There's a hunk of cheddar cheese, slices of onion and a tomato - those are all toppings. On the other side of my gorgeous wood block is a carrot, 1/2 a sweet onion, 2 radishes, and a small bulb of fennel - these were all shredded into a slaw, and I added some rice wine vinegar, salt & pepper. The chopped onions went into the pan-fried potatoes that were served as well.

So there you go - and now I will be diligent!! :)
