Our flight back to Los Angeles wasn’t until 3:50pm, so we stopped to eat in Bend first
Chow is a restaurant specializing in sustainable food…
…talk about local – there’s the garden!
Inside things were quiet
We sat where the action was –
I wanted one of everything off the menu!
Decided to share the Warm Multi Grain Salad with Abe…
…featuring black beans, olive oil, garlic, spinach + squeeze o’ lemon
Also split the Happy Vegetable – Roasted Pickled Veggies, Savory House Made Cheese, + Olive Relish on Lavoy Brioche
Sweet potato fries on the side – they were simultaneously crisp and mushy
Cousin Rachel (the new bride) gave me a bite of her polenta – thick, like a pancake
Chow makes incredibly good chow!
Our waitress was a total pro – navigating our table of 12 in the middle of a brunch rush. We made it to the airport with plenty of time, though RDM isn’t exactly as rushed as LAX:
By the time we got back, it was almost 9:30pm. Dinner was a giant Pink Lady in the car
All of us bathed (Julius included) and collapsed into bed. It’s good to be home!
