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!

The first meal

We got a membership to Costco - something I never thought would happen. Now I simply must buy things in massive quantities simply because I can. I wandered through their meat department and found some spare ribs - HUGE slabs of spare ribs. And since the cupboards were still bare, I opted for a local bbq sauce. I lined the bottom of a baking dish with oodles of slices of Walla Walla sweet onions, and placed the ribs on top, sprinkled with garlic salt, paprika, salt & pepper. 335 degrees for 2 hours - after the first hour I pulled them out and doused them with bbq sauce. For a side dish: medley of potatoes (white, red & purple). I boiled them, sliced them, and then tossed them back in the hot pot with some olive oil, butter, salt & pepper. A lovely and hearty meal to start things out in the new kitchen!
