This television show, I'm sure, must make non-Oregonians shake their heads in disbelief but for those of us who have been there, we laugh knowingly. We laugh a lot.
As further proof of the validity of that television parody, I offer this page from last Sunday's Oregonian, the living section, an article about a Portland shop that sells fashions -I mean Trashions- called Junk to Funk:
That woman's hair adornment is made from wine corks and her outfit was made from wine labels.
You can't make this stuff up.
Renew, reuse, recycle.
But one area where Portland continually redeems itself is its appreciation for well-made food.
I share that appreciation. And so do my kids.
Especially my oldest son who knows that a way to this mama's heart is through her stomach.
