BFE, Virginia, March 21, 2007 Oh, you suspicious cad, you. You think that I only make a show of eating veggies and slamming water and occasionally walking home instead of riding the metro. You think it’s all a show – and that when I’m alone – really, truly, in the middle of BFE Virginia off [...]

WASHINGTON, DC, March 16, 2007 “Fries Frittata = gloppy deliciousness and reminds me of why I will continue to fail as an aspiring vegan.” – roommate Angie I needed to step away from the computer – to spend some time slicing, engaged in another sort of reverie.

LISBOA, Portugal, January 22, 2007 One of the best things about my job at the Oasis hostel is the free dinner, cooking by a rotating cast of local chefs. Seeing as how free food is my number one passion in life – (heck, this ain’t the first job I took because of the munchies) – [...]

LAGOS, Portugal, January 11, 2007 Chef Sharon Crayton and I treated ourselves to a night out at Lagos’ premiere Thai restaurant, Lemongrass. (OK, technically, it was her treat.) The entire meal was divine, with the notable exception of the bland papaya salad, which we didn’t bother to finish. Grilled mussels in Portugal are delectable, moist, [...]

POSTED BY LauraFries.com IN Food, Portugal, Travels

Image not available

LAGOS, Portugal, January 9, 2007 Thank you Portugal, for proferring this awesome can of tuna that looks like it’s been hanging out at the bottom of a sailboat for the last 70 years. For some reason, a can of tuna is relatively expensive in Portugal – this can ran me €1.90 ($2.48 at current exchange [...]
