Braised Thighs 

I recently bought a cast iron Dutch oven and I made braised thighs with carrots, potatoes and onions.

I found the recipe on line and it tasted delish!


Brew Coffee and Tap House

Hubby and I were meeting a friend for lunch and a movie. Our friend lives 2 hours drive from us, so we decided to meet in the middle in Independence, OR.

It’s our first time visiting this town. Serene, small and quaint. They had a farmer’s market. We parked at the movie theater and walked to “downtown” for lunch. As we were walking, there weren’t much shops and restaurants that were open. I got a whiff of food coming from “Brew Coffee and Tap House“. We decided to go there.

The server was nice and friendly. He said that the bread for the sandwiches and Stromboli are made fresh from the bakery next door and the pasta is made from the noodle place a few stores down.

I had the Roast Beef Stromboli (pictured), my husband had the Philly Cheesesteak with a salad and our friend had Italian Stromboli.

Our food was delicious!!
