Wow, it’s good to be back home…kind of. I was in Washington for almost a week and had such a great time with family, friends, and food. MK and I went at the best time of the year…no rain and temperature in the 80s! I spent the entire time there in shorts! I go there about once a year, and I never experienced such great weather. Good eats, good company, good times…
On the day of our departure, we stopped by Pike Place Market in Seattle. I’ve been there a few times, but I always love going back. It’s bustling with so much fun stuff and never gets old! San Diego feels so “blah” now…
Harold first took us to a place called Piroshky Piroshky (800+ reviews 4.5 stars on Yelp!) and got us a…piroshky. It’s Russian, and it’s basically a baked or fried bun with stuffings inside. They look like giant dumplings, don’t they? They also have a lot of sweet pastries. Sweet and savory…can’t go wrong.
We had the Smoked Salmon Pate Piroshky. You can’t really tell in the photo, but it had just enough salmon…sooooo good! I want one right now!
One thing I love about this place is that you get samples everywhere! These beef jerkies were some of the beefiest I’ve had…very thick and tender at the same time.
Marionberry…it’s a northwestern blackberry.
Elephant garlic…that’s my type of garlic.
You can taste different flavors of honey. That bee tried to get a taste too. Do you see him?
Where else can you get seafood, chocolate pasta, and some colorful sticks all in one place?
Crab and shrimp night, anyone?
Smoked Salmon in Seattle = Money! Look at that giant piece hubby got to sample.
Those peaches really deserve the name. They were delicious!
Pickles, fresh produce, and some funky vegetable…
Oysters in Seattle are to die for. I always eat oysters on Washington trips.
I feel healthy just looking at these!
Those are jars of Ikura Salmon Caviar on the right.
I love those peppers. We got one for my mom years ago, and they dried beautifully.
This is what seafood heaven must look like. Please take me there right now.
I wonder how many smoothies one can make with all this stuff.
Til next time, salmon friends…
