Found!

Surprise!


Welcome to bohomeme at Found on Fremont.

I moved in and set up my cozy little "home" on Monday afternoon with the help of my good friend Tiffany of For the Love of Paisley and the labor of our strong husbands. I am so excited to make something of this space and thrilled that I now have a reason to go treasure-hunting.

If you live in the Portland area, come take a peek at my nook and then, because you won't be able to help yourself, browse all the wonderful treasures from the other vendors at Found. And then, if you're on Facebook, become a fan of the store and get updates on the different events and parties put on by Amy and Beth!

I am always amazed at the beautiful things that come through those doors, and I hope to add something special to an already very special place!



Honor the brave.

Thank you.

waffles + ice cream.


A great last-minute dessert idea:


Picked up two sugar waffles from Waffle Window on Hawthorne...



Cashed in my coupon for a free pint of Ben & Jerry's from the Pint for a Pint Blood Drive...

And voila!


Takes the ice cream sandwich to a whole new level.

prĂȘts! feu! partez!


We did it. Booked our tickets to Europe. Two months, September 27 through November 29.

We have "plans". We fly into Dublin. I have family in Switzerland, he has an aunt in Morocco. A bulk of time in France, bien sur.

Recommendations considered and desired!

I almost fell out of my chair, Lola is so funny!

Especially #19, about the Economy.


lunchin' in style.

These swanky lunch bags put my black "Cool Chiller" insulated lunch bag (or plastic safeway bag, I admit) to shame.

Guess I need to update my look!

Mojito Slaw

IMG_7345


We attended our friends' Cinco de Mayo party on Saturday night (So, Ocho de Mayo?) and had a great time enjoying the rare semi-warm spring evening in Portland with a sunset that wasn't hidden by grey clouds.


We spent most of the evening playing Kubb, the addictive outdoor game that is otherwise known as "Viking Chess". I'll do a post on it sometime. In fact, we played it well after sunset, so our host got the ingenious idea of bringing out a floor lamp connected by an extension cord. We could have played all night!

But I'm actually going to focus on slaw. Mojito slaw. I've had a resurgence of love for coleslaw and have been really amused by Smitten Kitchen's slaw obsession. I had a 1/2 head of cabbage in the fridge left over from making sauerkraut (I'll do a post on that, too) and found this great slaw recipe that fit the "mexican food" criteria and was easy to make. While I did not ultimately find the recipe of SK's website, I'm going to try out some of her slaw recipes this summer for sure.



Mojito Cole Slaw


(left front of picture above)


From Papawow!



  • 1/2 a large cabbage, chopped into thin shreds

  • 1 large grated carrot

  • 1/2 a jicama, cut into thin strips

  • 1 cup yogurt

  • 4 tablespoons of chopped mint

  • juice of 1/2 a lime and the zest

  • 2 teaspoons sea salt

  • 1 teaspoon pepper


Directions:


Make the dressing first by adding the yogurt, salt, pepper, mint, lime juice, and lime zest in a bowl. Mix the cabbage, jimaca, and carrot together in a large bowl. Then, incorporate the dressing and the cabbage mixture well. Keep refrigerated.


I leave you with pinata pictures.
