Greetings from Ashland Oregon! Mary Pellegrini and I arrived yesterday evening for the start of the Oregon Bed & Breakfast Guild Annual Meeting week. Today's Monday, March 29, 2010, and we started of the day with a great breakfast at the Oak Hill Bed & Breakfast, one of the Ashland Oregon lodging sites supporting the meeting.
If we weren't here for business we could easily make this a northwest culinary vacation. Pat & Tom purchased this 5-room bed and breakfast in 1999 and haven't looked back one bit. This morning Pat thrilled us with fresh pineapple and berries, her specialty herbed baked eggs and some of her fantastic barley flour scones. Pat's developed her own custom finishing salts--the one today included green tea matcha!
This afternoon is meeting time for the Board of Directors of the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild. We've got plenty on the agenda. More posts coming!
