There's not really a comparable word for the female version of caramelized apples, unfortunately. Sistren doesn't have quite the same ring (and according to the red squiggly underline, it's not an official enough word anyway).

Thanks, Kelly. The muffins are special. Next time I may even double the caramelized apple portion and tuck in the extra as a surprise filling. (Though I guess now it won't be a surprise.)

Just wait, Peggy. The ferris wheel speeds up every year. Pull down the safety restraint, hold tight, and enjoy the ride.

Always, my friend.

Please don't apologize. Though I work hard on the photos, I labor over the text, so there's no shame in absorbing that first.

So glad you got it in the morning.

I love that. Sometimes these moments and experiences are mammal-wide. I love that you found threads of resonance here within your canine-inclusive family.

Thank you for reading, Zoomie.

What you say is always important. If not to me, then to someone, always, forever. I'm happy to be the one to remind you of this, though I am a stranger. My wish for you is that you internalize it and carry it around with you, daily, like your purse, or your phone. Hiiii. Glad you like the cake!
Bicep curls are hard. That's why I never do them. It's also why I was -- frankly -- terrible the one time I tried to haul up that crab pot. #truth
Hi Nicole, It was my pleasure! And don't look for the perfect moment to get in your car, or on your bike, and explore; just go. You've got such beauty right there at your doorstep.
Sally, I genuinely appreciate your comment. This was my biggest challenge, and because it's not always easy to broach these topics, many folks don't. But Oregon's Native American history is a huge part of the state and its people, not just past but very much present. I'm so glad I got to experience it in some way, however small.
Excellent. You can join me for dinner / at dinner any time.
I feel you. I actually (true story) saw a little tub of duck fat at a local grocery store and bought some, then tried to recreate those fries at home. They were good, but nowhere near as good as the ones I had at Red Fish. I guess I have to keep making them until I perfect the crunch.
I was part of a group so I just shrugged and panicked on the inside. But this is probably a typical warning they give all up and down the coast just so people know what to do in the unlikely event of an emergency. But I hear you!
Your final sentence is pretty much the best compliment anyone could ever offer. Thank you, A.
Not easy to convey the distinct personality of the nature up there, but I tried.
Can we spend all our time at Salt & Straw?
ONE DAY for real. For now, this.
{Thanks, Amanda, and I promise to whisper, too.}
Excellent and yes. Don't forget the fleece.
