Touring Stayton

We decided to stay close to home so we wouldn’t miss tonight’s Volcano’s game.  So a tour of Stayton was in order.  After doing the peeping Tom thing at the Brown house and drooling over the wraparound porch we made our way over to the Gardner House, a local B&B.  A case full of delectable looking baked goods (not vegan but quite lovely) greeted us.  We perused the menu and decided we’d eat there.  The sandwich and salad selections had something for each of us; I chose the roasted veggie and hummus panini.  Oh my this was one delicious sandwich.  The B&B owner shared some fantastic stories about the home’s history and his family history too while we dined.  Afterwards he let us tour the cottage,what fun.  We browsed around an antique shop afterwards and I bought a darling little bowl for $6, a good find!  If that wasn’t enough a stop at Fresh to You and I scored some super yummy Rainier cherries and a Pear Soda by Hot Lips.  Hot Lips is a Portland based pizza company that specializes in sustainable business.  If their pizza is as good as the small batch brewed soda is they have a winner!

Portland Peach Iced Tea; uber peachy and refreshing.  D thought it wasn’t sweet enough.

M was introduced to her first panini and came back for seconds on Saturday.  The veggie hummus was a winner!

Darling little antique shop with super friendly and helpful proprietors.  It’s nice to see someone truly enjoying their business!

Last but not least Hot Lips Pear soda enjoyed on the ride home.
