Then we power-walked Vee over to Native Bowl to say hi to Julie, and to pick up some purportedly amazing xgfx pizza dough she was sharing. I really hope this dough breaks the bank.
Next we met up with Dazee, a few of his co-workers and lots of other folks and Occupied Portland for awhile.
I cannot speak for Mr. Ploeg, or his cookzine, but I personally think corporations should not have the same rights as people. Also the zine matches this cool sign = double rad.
We also dined together. I think it's safe to assume Fire and Ice also loves ethiopian food. This is from Emame downtown and was especially good this afternoon. Their xgfx injera can't be beat. Clockwise from top left: timatim selata (tomato salad), cabbage gomen, xgfx teff injera, ye'abesha gomen (collard greens), ye'misir w'et (lentils in a spicy red gravy) and potato "sauce," which is really a mild potato allecha. So. Freakin'. Good.
Sadly, the day zoomed away from us before we were able to do any cookin' or photo takin'. Check back tomorrow for a full report on the Stubbies, the zine, and for a little extra something-something about Mr. J. Ploeg.
If you're up for this task (you'll need to be able to get back to me before the end of the month, so I can include it in MoFo 2011), comment here through Sunday. I'll mail the zine out on Monday to the winning applicant (please make sure your comment includes a way I can get back to you)!
Thanks for your offers, I'll be sending the zine off to Canada to visit Marika from Madcapcupcake!
P.S. I don't have any copies left of the first Papa Tofu, but if any of you have it and want to document that one up for the project, holla!
