Crock Pot Moroccan Chicken, Apricot, and Chickpea Tagine

On our Sunday drives home from the cabin on the Key Peninsula, we like to talk about what we want to eat for the week ahead and do a little menu planning for Sunday afternoon shopping.

Martinotti’s Cafe and Deli in Portland

Just around the corner from Kenny and Zuke’s deli is Martinotti’s cafe and deli. We stopped in to Martinotti’s, lured by the impressive meat and cheese display. (Apparently we are suckers for a good deli. Also, apparently Seattle needs more delis.) Inside, you feel like you’re in an old-school deli in 1970’s New York.
