So I didn't blog for a week. But I have a good excuse! I went off to Portland (Oregon, not Maine) to visit my sister at Lewis and Clark college. My mom came along as well and we all had a great time. I'm starting us off slow, but know that this trip ends at a Chocolate Festival. Rock it.
First stop on the Portland tour: Voodoo Doughnut!
This place came highly recommended by my good friend and former roommate Josh. His exact words: OH! Voodoo Donut!!! (he spelled it wrong. But I still love him) And so off we went.
There were literally a tower of doughnuts to choose from.
What I love the most about Portland is the hippie greenie crunchy vibe mixed in with tons and tons of bacon. Seriously. There was bacon everywhere we went. You'll see as we go on. But here?
Yeah, that's bacon ON A DOUGHNUT. Awesome. I totally ate it. My mom and sister tried not to vomit. I'm sure my dad is horrified. But it was amazing. Salty and sweet, with maple frosting.....gotta love it.
Don't worry, if you're not bacon friendly, there are plenty of choices.
Note the vegan options! Those crazy Oregonians. Also note the spirited names of doughnuts such as Cock N' Balls, Tex-ass and Old Dirty Bastard.
It was a nice start to the trip. Here we are, smiling and happy.
More Portland to come!
