SF Chowhound makes dinner in PDX - report

Thanks to everyone for your grocery store suggestions for my dinner. New Seasons had some awesome (and expensive) Chinook salmon that was the centerpiece. Here's what I did:

Cannelleni bean puree with rosemary on crostini

Frisee salad with bacon, poached egg and shallot vinaigrette

Marinated (soy, honey, cayenne, lemon, orange) salmon filets roasted in fig leaves

Penne pasta with caramelized fennel (your fennel is just gorgeous right now, not immature and stringy as it is here in Berkeley) and arugula, topped with Reggiano peels

Strawberries macerated with balsamic and sugar. I looked hard for Mt. Hood berries, but could only find California. Regardless, they were sweet and good.

Thank you all for your suggestions. It was fun cooking in your fine city.
