On Saturday Portland got a major heat wave. We don’t get really hot weather here very often, so when it does happen, it’s hard to know what to do, or wear, or eat. Alex and I spent a lot of the day reading in the shade and drinking iced tea. When dinnertime rolled around, we wanted to make something cool and refreshing that was pretty simple to make and that wouldn’t result in an even hotter kitchen. Enter this lovely little grilled chicken and quinoa bowl with cucumber, tomato and feta.

Becky and I are back in our hometown of Portland, OR. It’s an odd, at times difficult, adjustment, made easier by the fact that we have a place to live. Both of us our staying at our respective parents’ places, with Becky spending more time at my place than I hers, due mostly to my busy work schedule at nights.
At the moment, I only have two nights off a week to do dinner with her, or really at all. We’re making it work to the best of our abilities.
