This post is mostly for my mom, because she always asks to know where on the Internet I happened to be that week. For those of you who were also wondering that same thing, here’s a short list of…
Other Places on the Internet Where Doni Showed Up This Week
Food Writing | DishKebab, The Local Dish, and Twenties Hacker
My first post on DishKebab went up! I wrote about a restaurant in Portland’s SW neighborhood that I absolutely love.
I’m getting in the swing of things writing for The Local Dish. So far, I’ve written a review of Wenatchee, Washington’s Chateau Faire Le Pont winery, my favorite breakfast recipe — Farmers’ Market Baked Eggs, and a couple of short recaps/announcements for Portland’s DishCrawl and The Wedge cheese party.
I’m so excited about the food writers on my team at Twenties Hacker, where I’m the new (first!) Food Editor. I’m spending most of my time with the site managing this great, creative group of bloggers, but from time to time, I’ll be posting, too. This week, I shared a recipe for the easiest, most awesome baked potato ever.
It was warm and sunny on Tuesday, so Chris and I took our laptops to a restaurant on the river and spent the last part of our workday testing our new 4G hotspot and soaking up the sun. That whole situation did not suck. Not even a little.
On Wednesday night, I saw The Head and the Heart at the Crystal Ballroom (my first show there). The first opening band was Lemolo, a two-chick force that sounded kind of like Lissie, kind of like Karen O. It was total magic. Following Lemolo, there was Thao With the Get Down Stay Down. And get down we did. The Head and the Heart was awesome. Big sound, strong vocals, and a female lead-slash-violinist-slash oh-my-god-put-that-sound-in-a-bottle-and-I-will-drink-it-like-a-magic-potion-and-be-transported-magically-to-some-pretty-little-fairie-forest-with-sunlight-and-moscato-d’asti-and-elves.
It was a good show.
Annnnnnd, that was a little piece of what this past week looked like.
