Comfort Food/Comfort Weekend

Ever been to Troutdale, Oregon to experience an enormous, steaming bowl of chicken and dumplings with a side of green beans and bits of ham? Tads has been in business for decades, the chicken 'n dumplins famous since the 1940's. Check out this feast and those who enjoyed the delicious comfort food on a stormy October evening.

We've had a wonderful weekend at Tina and Wayne's home in Vancouver, joined by Heather and Chris. Despite the intermittent rain, we did make it to the Japanese Gardens in Portland and Multonmah Falls. Thanks to Tina for sharing her photographs with me. My camera was nowhere to be found when I packed for the trip.

A very good day was had by all.


  1. I am hoping to be able to attend a conference in Portland, Oregon next summer. I will have to go to those Japanese gardens. I don't know how far the falls are from Portland. I love waterfalls. Tina

  2. Oh, beautiful! I meant the scenery. The dumplings look awesome, but I don't know how I'd ever finish them. Love Tad's sign.

    Glad to see you are out enjoying yourself - it's been a hard couple of weeks for you.

  3. Love to see you smiling. And eating nurturing food. The pictures are beautiful.

  4. There is no better, more satisfying comfort food on earth than good chicken and dumplings.
