Waiting Out the Storm
Given that we are staying in Astoria, we made a visit to the farmers' market, where we found fresh corn, and a variety of fresh chilis that make it obvious that there is a robust Hispanic population here these days.
We had come from Portland with a largess of tomatoes from our friend Ron, whose love of tomatoes goes deep into his California youth. We bought a few fresh Poblano peppers from the market, along with some fresh corn, and returned to the boat. Still gray, still raining.
Combined all these ingredients to make a Tomato Corn Pie, with a Buttermilk Crust. Made a bloody awful mess, the kind of chaos that seems impossible, and then proves to produce wonderful food.
