Looks like rain this weekend. Sounds like cioppino this weekend.
IT'S 4/19, AND YOU KNOW WHAT TOMORROW IS: Why, Easter of course! Happy Saturday to ya, folks. Sorry your Friday fish fable had to wait an extra day this week, but holy moly, talk aboutembarrassing technical difficulties. Your favorite internet mailing list had egg all over its face yesterday -- must be getting ready for Easter! We certainly are -- our local farm eggs (as opposed to supermarket factory eggs) are on sale just for the occasion, only $5 for a dozen of the best, fresh, natural chicken eggs you will taste. Color some with the kids, then whip up some deviled eggs for Sunday evening in the back yard.
JUST KEEP TRUCKIN' OOOON: When we last checked in on the fish truck, Paul was loungin' in front of it on an episode of Portlandia. On its way there, it's made stops in St Johns, Sauvie Island, the South Waterfront and elsewhere 'round town. Well now we're happy to announce it's coming to one of your favorite places in PDX: Multnomah Village! On May 15th, the fish truck will open up next to the veggie and flower stand at SW 35th & Multnomah. Wait. That means we're gonna be across the street from John's Market Place, with the best beer selection in Portland? Ohhhhh nooooo!
LOCAL OCEAN FOOD FOR GLOBAL EARTH DAY: Work up an appetite on Tuesday planting trees and cleaning up neighborhoods, blow a kiss to Mother Nature (and a wink at Mount Hood if he's visible), then reward yourself with a good meal and a good conscience. Our sustainable seafood sources on the Oregon Coast have an Earth Day bounty this week: Troll Caught Chinook Salmon, Black Rockfish, Dover Sole, Lingcod, Skate Wing, Cooked and Picked Dungeness Crab Meat, Netarts Bay Oysters.
HE WHO SMELT IT DEALT IT. Smelt Fries. You upper midwesterners know what's up. (Yo Minnesota. Sup Wisconsin.) Have you tried the west coast equivalent? Granted, it's not the same as going out into frigid temperatures with a headlamp overnight and dipping a net into a lake, ice cold Old Milwaukee in tow, but it's the west coast facsimile. Wee little buggers, CaliforniaSmelt are bite size fish that you simply must fry up in a pan. Heck, mix em up with some potato fries and salt liberally. We might suggest a Hop Valley 541 Lager (or one of our Oakshire/Ninkasi selections) but if you insist on Old Mud, you'll have to stop at Plaid on the way home. And that's okay.
