Dining Out: Pine State Biscuits, Portland OR

As I'm typing this, a young black lab is staring me down with a soggy tennis ball.  We've been pet-sitting all week off of Belmont for some friends.  Needless to say, food writing and photography has not been the priority.  Dog walks, treats, and puppy kisses have taken precedent.  More tasty recipes coming soon (lots of summer picnic dishes).  Until then, a little dining out in this South East neighborhood.

We first heard about Pine State back in Sacramento while watching Diners, Drive-ins and Dives with Guy Fieri.

Pork Gyros with Tangy Greek Yogurt Sauce

This was a delicious hit.  Easy.  Tangy.  Healthy.  Meaty.  Full of veggies.  Thank you Bobby Flay.

I tweaked Flay's recipe a bit: using parsley instead of dill, adding the zest of the cucumber to the sauce and cupped the goodness with whole wheat pita bread.
