The Savory 6 with Evan Smith

Welcome to The Savory 6 – a weekly column featuring six weekly questions for one of the guests on our show. Check, Please! Northwest is all about dining out, but that’s not the only thing that happens at the table. When you put three strangers together and encourage banter, anything can happen! It’s a happy byproduct of the show and it’s one of my favorite parts – getting to know all of these food-loving folks. In this weekly article, we get to dig a little deeper into one of our guest’s culinary quirks and preferences.

On this week’s show, software developer Evan Smith shares Geraldine’s Counter – a colorful Columbia City joint that boasts quality comfort food and all-day breakfast. We didn’t get a chance to talk about it on the show, but Evan says you have to go back and try the coffee cake. Tune in June 19th at 7:30 pm on KCTS 9. Watch Evan’s restaurant pick online now.

Meet Evan Smith…

How often do you dine out?
More than I should. About twice a week.

Fill in the blank: If I see something with _________ on a menu, I HAVE to order it.
Generally speaking, Ahi Tuna is a done deal. The meal is pretty much guaranteed to be light and tasty - provided the tuna is fresh.

What is your signature dish—something you make well and consistently?
Egg Muffin Sandwiches, or as I call them, Egg Muffin Sammies (see what I did there?). One egg, any way you like, provided that the way is scrambled, fried, or over easy. I typically use different veggies and cheeses for variety. Avocado and bacon crumbles are the constants. There are lots of ways to mess up an egg…and this is one of them!

Do you have a morning consumption ritual & what is it?
Coffee and peanut butter toast. What can I say? I’m a simple man.

Most awesome OR annoying food trend?
Awesome: Bacon-wrapped dates. Can’t get enough of these little guys. I wouldn’t mind if they were everywhere. Come to think of it, is there a bacon-wrapped date food truck I don’t know about?

Annoying: What is it with making patrons bus their own tables? I get it, say, at a coffee shop, where food isn’t the top priority, but at a real restaurant? When it was a handful of restaurants, it was charming. Now I feel like it’s everywhere. One of my favorite places actually takes this a step farther and makes you set your own table and serve your own drinks! I can’t wait till someone opens a restaurant where I get to cook my own food. They could call it Your House.

If you were stuck on a deserted island and only had ONE food with you, what would it be?
It was a real toss-up here between cheesesteak and grapefruit. In the end, I think I’m going grapefruit, because, you know, scurvy.

Amazing blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers? I'm planning to start my own website soon but I'm a little lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm completely overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Cheers!

Sony exposed the PS4 operates on a single-chip custom-made processor and utilizes 8 x86-64 AMD Jaguar CPU cores, with a next-gen AMD Radeon based graphics engine powering the method. Having said that, Infinity Keep constantly usually deliver some sort of top-notch video game regardless of any one altogether different feels or suggests. This game, one of the first science fiction MMO’s to actually make it big, was awesome, truly awesome.

Sorting fact from fiction is of the utmost importance. My earlier statements about Myron Hill come to mind, the videos being shown in the reverse order. Denial of a person's No-Fault claim means that the work the injury lawyer did in setting up the case will be easily transferable to filing the case in court and prosecuting a First Party No-Fault Action against the insurance company for lost wages or other benefits that were wrongfully denied by the insurance company.

Just like many kinds of loans, you have to provide some items that will be the collateral for the money that you will receive. Many fake gold bullion bars are almost indistinguishable from real gold bullion bars, as many fake gold bars are coated with real gold despite the fact that their insides are fake. Allen told viewers not to let her pretty face fool you, because she owns a thrift shop, and she is willing to pay top dollar.

Again, such cleverly "technical" melodramatics serve mostly the well-calculated purpose of distracting attention from the on a regular basis "informal" procedure by which such "contracts" are "signed," particularly by those that need not even rely on the use of any God or Satan at all. Christ, like a separate and mortal individual, per se, using a distinctive Identity, did indeed use a beginning. To give my fellow Wombats a glimpse into my hometown world, I invite you to a Polish wedding reception just like my own, personal, thirteen years ago.

You can examine their backgrounds and choose who among them has the right capacity in becoming your lawyer. A victim of an auto accident can make substantial claims from the reckless driver or the car owner who are liable to pay for the vehicle damage and medical cost for treating the injuries the victim has suffered. This means that if you do not manage to settle with an adjuster, and you want to pursue your child's claim, you will need the help of a lawyer.

The first step that a personal injury lawyer takes is listening to the grievances of his clients and then he evaluates the case. Before insisting on a court date, consult a personal injury attorney to establish the best possible course of action. Until the person injured takes legal assistance it isalmost impossible to catch the guilty.

Hi there! I understand this is sort of off-topic but I needed to ask. Does managing a well-established blog like yours require a massive amount work? I'm completely new to writing a blog however I do write in my journal every day. I'd like to start a blog so I will be able to share my experience and views online.

Job interviewers, lawyers, investigators, the police, and the entire world will be searching for information on your Facebook site at some point. I take my role as the Fourteenth Juror seriously, the press, as only the media can have influence on lawsuits in the future, and fair treatment for both the police and those lives that they touch daily. Until the person injured takes legal assistance it isalmost impossible to catch the guilty.
