We ended August 23 with a walk back and forth between the Screen Door over on East Burnside, where we dined

I love this photo! Look at Kay's hands and Milton's posture. They're such troopers, waiting patiently for their first bites, allowing me time to get a great photo of our Carolina pulled pork sandwiches, which is house-smoked pork shoulder, on a toasted bun. The sides are creamy coleslaw and fries. Kay and I substituted sweet potato fries while Milton decided to have the regular ones. I didn't care for the coleslaw, but the rest of it was very good.

I've got the entree photo before the appetizers because I wanted to get right to making the point of the splendid cooperation of my good friends, and their support of my photographic goals!

Fried okra with remoulade. I like mine just as it comes out of the kitchen--crunchy okra.

Fried green tomatoes, can't remember if that's the same remoulade in the little bowl, might be. It's not my thing, remoulade.

Seen on the walk home. It says ZAPTRUCK beneath the door. Mama at first thought we were going to driving something like this when I began to talk about trying a Zipcar. Needless the say, she thought I'd lost my mind. I don't know--I think this looks doggone good for city living.

Milton did not remember to take his acid reflux med before we ate, so he had a rough, rough night. Drat it.

The first 3 photos made me hungry. Great shots. I'd prefer a walk after this feast ;)

Yikes!!!! I'm full just lookin. D-lish!

Looks delicious, I too am not really a fan of coleslaw do not mind a bit but not that much.

Jacob said...

Great shot, Lynette! And not a calorie on those plates. It seems to me, however, that such foods would be more appropriate down here in the deep south than away up there in Oregon! :-)

Love that car. And yes, it would be a wonderful way to get around town.

Yummy food pics. Yes, your guests were a patient lot. All the food served and setting on the table, then having to wait on a photo? You have them well trained!

Oh that looks so good and I just had breakfast. Oh what the heck bring it one. I love sweet potato fries. Would have been my first choice too.

Jack said...

What a fine restaurant you found. Mmmmm.

The top, yummy photo with the fries, coleslaw and burger look soooo good! Especially after my lame lunch today...

Jacob said...

Thanx for the info, Lynette! Sounds like a great place...I will look it up if we ever are lucky enough to visit Portland!

Hey Lynette, we tried doing our own fried green tomatoes last year but really didn't care for them, maybe it was our cooking method? Portland sure has lots of good-looking food places. We would want to try them all, so maybe you, Kay and Milton can do that for us and report back?

That food looks sooo good! I have never seen a Zap truck. I love it!

Seems you have a piece of the south up there in Portland...gotta dig those fried green tomatoes and okra.

The pulled pork looks great. Brians Grandma is from Alabama. She said they eat the cole slaw on the sandwich, I've never heard of that before.
