Perfect Pastrami and Antiques

Yesterday, my friend, Becky, and I hung out in Sisters doing some antiquing and eating.  What a way to spend a warm sunny day!  I've been in search for a good pastrami sammy, and I finally found the winner at The Depot.  It was fantastic...the homemade jalapeno cheese roll just about did me in!  We chatted with the super cute owner for a few porn!  We talked about all our favorite places to go in Bend...Brother Jon's, Sparrow Bakery, Baked.  The list goes on and on.

Runner up sammies:  Cross Creek Cafe (great bread, good pastrami), and Soup 2 Nuts (great bread, so so pastrami).

We hit several antique stores.  I'm collecting rolling pins, so I'm always looking out for unique ones that don't cost an arm and a leg.  Becky is the mastermind decorator and sees beauty in so many items most people pass up.  For example, Sisters has a GREAT ReStore (bigger than Redmond, I think).  They had these retro office chairs on casters by the door for free.  We sat in them for a bit, and she told me how she would redo them...lacquer, new fabric, and voila!  We hauled them back to her house.  I can't wait to see the finished product.

I'll have to take Emil to Sisters next week to look at tools and goodies at the ReStore...and a pastrami sammy of course!  Hours are limited at The Depot and other stores since it's winter.
