Portland Greendrinks hosted their first joycott at the Public Market House this past Sunday. Their mission? “Instead of boycotting the bad, joycott the good.” And joycott we did.

The Public Market House, while usually busy on a day-to-day lunch visit, was completely bursting at the seams on Sunday! Which was exciting to see, knowing that 51% of the day’s profits will be invested in improving the building’s energy efficiency. Well done! I wonder where the next joycott will be…
Oh, and Happy VDay/Valentine’s Day!

We lounged, chatted, laughed, and walked all over. We caught some park art & music, took a train to the beach, and caught up on some long-overdue girl time. I had such a lovely time with my old college friends in the city – and I wanted to share one gem of a place that we went to: Il Bambino.
We had white wine, one of their cheese platters with the perfect fig spread, and these four crostini:
mozzarella, basil pesto, and chili oil
goat cheese, honey, and rosemary oil
goat cheese, chorizo, and avocado oil
prosciutto, basil pesto and parmesan
It was incredible and I would venture to guess that everything offered at this place tastes phenomenal. Now I’m going to attempt to recreate the crostini in my kitchen…
