Yesterday was a perfect Saturday for me. By 8 A.M., I was sweating at a spinning class, back home to housework and then quality time with Ginny before taking her to doggy day care. She loves playing with the other dogs and comes home tired, hungry and happy. I’m such a good dog mother!
Next, my BFF and I were off to Serratto’s in NW Portland for an excellent lunch. I ordered Pan Seared Idaho Trout which came with an almond crust, leek and mushroom farro, porcini-thyme brodo. I didn’t know what some of those ingredients were but I did know that it sounded perfect. It was delicious, light and filling. My BFF ordered pappardelle braised wild boar, radish, arugula,hazelnuts, and shaved pecorino. It was delicious also!
The desserts that went by our table looked delicious but we abstained as we did not want to be late for the 2 P.M. showing of Anomalisa. Another time! Serratto Restaurant & Bar
Cinema 21 is just a couple of blocks from Serrato so we walked there in the overcast, cool weather. It is an older funky theater that has been restored. It has so much personality and such a loyal clientele. It is a neighborhood gem.
Speaking of movies, glad you asked!
When I watch a movie I want to be intrigued, puzzled, educated and moved. Here are movies that I watched recently that fit the bill for me. Not listed in any particular order.
Bridge of Spies
The Big Short
Dinner was a slice of quiche from St. Honore Bakery (another neighborhood gem), leftover veggies and some red wine. Ginny had her usual cuisine plus a walk to the park before dozing off in front of the fireplace.
A wonderful day…all in all.
