    Lydia, how ironic that I also am heading to Portland this weekend! I have never been there and am looking forward to shopping in the open market and trying some microbrews. xoxo

    What a cute post… looks fun. If that fava bean crostini is from Martha Stewart’s hors d’oeuvre cookbook, I can attest to its deliciousness. It’s almost as good as the book’s photos! :)
