I spent the first week of July in a rented beach house in Rockaway Beach, OR with my family.
I watched a weiner dog race

This cute little guy tumbled for us while we were waiting for the dogs to get their running shorts on, he was really good!
I watched amazing fireworks from the balcony of the beach house, with a glass of lovely OR wine!
Hiked down to a pretty little beach
and stopped and looked at the mighty Columbia on my way home
I caught clams, crabs and rockfish and ate all three, as well as bringing some home. I drank A LOT of Oregon wine and brought some home for us to try….
I am so in love with Oregon…
In honor of my obsession with all things Oregon, I want to do a little giveaway. Everyone who leaves a comment will be automatically entered. I’ll put all the names in a hat and pick one out Labor Day, Sept. 3. The winner will get a copy of this wonderful Oregon cookbook. I bought a copy to take with me to Oregon and really enjoyed it. It’s become a treasured part of my ever growing cookbook library. It’s a lovely mix of recipes that takes advantage of the local food scene, a lot of seafood and berry ideas. My favorite chapter is the one on cooking with Oregon wine.
Roasted Beet and Chevre Spread, Apple-Huckleberry crisp, Oregon Shrimp Napoleons…oh my!
