Something from the Kitchen Local restaurant shares recipe for spinach and cheese stuffed mushrooms Spinach and cheese stuffed mushrooms are a great Northwest inspired dish that can be served as an appetizer or a side dish with salmon, beef or even as a main vegetarian course. If you are adventurous, spring in Oregon is a prime season for hunting mushrooms or, if like me, your mushroom hunting is limited to your local produce department, mushrooms are abundant. This is one of my favorite mushroom recipes and we served these most recently at Primrose & Tumbleweeds on our Valentine’s Day dinner menu, paired with Libra Wines, 2010 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir. The stuffed mushrooms can be made a day ahead and then just popped into the oven for a few minutes to brown. We make our own herbed bread crumbs here, but you can easily substitute your favorite brand. Dawn Sellers Primrose & Tumbleweeds, LLC The World’s Largest Selection of Oregon Wines 248 E. Main Street, Hillsboro, Oregon

Spinach and Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms 12 large mushrooms of your choice (I use white mushrooms) ½ medium white onion, finely chopped 1 package frozen spinach, squeeze liquid and drain well 1 cup herb bread crumbs 2 tablespoons melted butter 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce ¼ cup softened cream cheese 1/3 cup grated cheese (a mix of medium cheddar and pepper jack) Salt & pepper A couple dashes of Tabasco hot sauce if you like these spicy Fresh grated parmesan cheese for top Preheat oven to 375 degrees Clean mushrooms and remove stems. Chop mushroom stems and combine with other ingredients, mix well. Stuff mushroom caps generously with mixture and place on parchment covered baking sheet. Top with fresh grated parmesan and bake for 20 minutes or until filling is hot and cheese is browned. Serve warm.

Chantel and Chris Lederbrand sea kayak on their honeymoon in St. Lucia.

Planning your Next Trip Newlyweds Chantel and Chris Lederbrand had just finished planning all the details of their wedding, and they really weren’t looking forward to planning all of the details of their honeymoon. The couple knew they wanted to go someplace tropical to celebrate their marriage, but they really weren’t sure where. For people like Chantel and Chris who want to take a dream getaway, but don’t want to deal with the organizational nightmare of planning it, a travel agent is the way to go. Even with online sites that boast specials and low fares, travel agents can often get even better deals, provide personalized service, and offer the complete package. “It was awesome to not have to worry about anything,” said Chantel, a chiropractor whose office is in Downtown Hillsboro. After consulting with travel agent Penny Ault from Sun Connections Travel and Cruises in Beaverton, the Lederbrands settled on traveling to an all-inclusive Sandals Resort in St. Lucia where they went sea kayaking, scuba diving, and spent quality time together. Penny has been a travel agent since 2010, and specializes in Sandals Resorts and Royal Caribbean cruises. She is also an expert on Alaska travel, destination weddings and honeymoons, adapted travel (for people with special needs), and trips for

baby boomers. Penny even recently developed a travel companion program for individual travelers who want to share accommodations to take advantage of better deals. For Chantel, the best part of working with Penny as her travel agent was that the itinerary was

Top Travel Destinations for 2013 • Mexico • Hawaii • Disneyland • The Caribbean • Alaska *information compiled by Penny Ault, Sun Connections Travel and Cruises

organized and all in one place, and instead of writing ten checks to pay for flights, transportation, and hotels, she wrote one check to her travel agent who took care of the rest.

Clancy’s celebrates 25 Years on St. Patrick’s Day There’s more to celebrate than just St. Patrick’s Day this March at Clancy’s Pub and Restaurant in Old Town Sherwood. In addition to the annual holiday when we honor all things Irish, Clancy’s is celebrating 25 years in business, having opened its doors on March 17 in 1988. The family-owned restaurant and bar, located in historic Old Town Sherwood off Highway 99 south of Tigard, has built its menu on three generations of recipes. Clancy’s features more than 200 regular menu items, from award-winning clam chowder and fresh seafood dinners, to breakfast favorites and lunch classics. Robert (Bob) Bower, 68, and son Allen Bower, 42, own and manage the restaurant on the corner of 1st and Washington streets that has a perfect mix of location, atmosphere, and comfort food. For its 25th Anniversary Celebration and St. Patrick’s Day 2013, Clancy’s has an entire weekend of entertainment, live music, and food specials planned.

12 - www.washingtoncountyreview.com

Things kick off on Friday March 15 with Sherwood-based musician Amanda Christine Stanaway and Friends. Performances continue through the weekend featuring TVF&R Pipe and Drum Corps and singer/songwriter Tevis Hodge Jr. In addition to the entertainment, you can grab a plate of traditional corned beef and cabbage, or slurp some Irish stew. There will also be patio seating and a beer garden. St. Patrick’s Day is always big for Clancy’s with an estimated 1,500 patrons coming through the restaurant on that day last year. Clancy’s just feels like family, with more than 20 employees, some of whom have worked there for more than 10 years. Currently the restaurant is raising money for waitress Krisanne Driscoll who was recently diagnosed with cancer. Donations are being accepted at the restaurant.

Amanda Christine Stanaway The founder of the South Store Cafe has found a new calling as a “gutsy folk” rock musician Before she discovered her artistic side, Amanda Christine Stanaway meant business. As a teen, she ran a coffee cart in Beaverton before going on to study business at George Fox University. Then in 1999, she opened the South Store Cafe - a Washington County icon. After a divorce and the birth of her daughter, Stanaway’s life changed. She left the cafe and started to explore music and her new calling as a “gutsy folk” artist. Stanaway had played the piano when she was young, but she had always wanted a six string. Raised in the Quaker tradition near Tacoma, her community had ties to Newberg and she moved to Oregon at age 17. Since finding her creative voice, Stanaway recorded an album titled Artist Proof and is working on a second album set to be released in summer 2013. She is also writing an autobiographical account of her time at the South Store Cafe. The book, tentatively titled “Scraps,” is also due out this summer. In addition to now writing and performing her own music, Stanaway created The Song Circle, a grassroots collaborative for musicians and local entrepreneurs. Stanaway and friends will help kick off the 25th Anniversary and St. Patrick’s Day Celebration at Clancy’s Restaurant and Pub in Old Town Sherwood this month. Look for Stanaway and Friends at 8 p.m. on Friday March 15. www.amandachristine.net

Future winemaker Erin Gates, who likes to help her dad Paul around the vineyard, looks forward to the harvest this year and using the recumbent bicycle.

Some people have traveled all the way to Europe to crush grapes with their feet, to get the authentic experience and feel the sticky juices between their toes. Perhaps soon then, people will travel from all over the world to Oregon to crush grapes with a bicycle, to pedal their way to the delicious wine they seek. One local winemaker - Paul Gates of Gresser Vineyards - is pioneering just that. Gates now uses bicycle power to make his wine. “It’s a bit of insanity, and it’s a bit of necessity,” Gates explains. Previously at Gresser Vineyards, some 10 tons of grapes were processed through the destemmer

and crusher with the turn of a hand crank. That meant long hours of the same repetitive motion, over and over again. Needless to say, it was not an easy job. But during the 2012 harvest, Gates had an ingenious idea, he wanted to hook up a bicycle - with gears and all - to replace the hand crank. That way he could pedal his way to fine wine. With the help of a bicycle mechanic and a fix-it-type family friend, Gates was able to do just that. He hooked up a 24-speed recumbent bicycle and pedaled away. In honor of this innovative way to make wine, Gresser Vineyards released a new wine called RecumContinued on next page ...

bent Red - a pinot-based blend that captures the flavor and the essence of bicycle-powered wine. While the way Gates approaches crushing and destemming grapes may be new, he is a veteran wine maker. Originally from Lodi, California, Gates studied wine making at Fresno State University. Before Gates purchased his own land and went into winemaking for himself, he made wine at several Willamette Valley-area vineyards - including Montinore and Shafer - among others. In 1996, the Gates family bought an old Christmas tree farm and turned it into the vineyard. The property is located in the Chehalem Mountains just south of Cornelius and consists of about four tightly-planted acres of pinot noir grapes on a steep hillside at about a 900-foot elevation. The vineyard was originally planted in 1998 and Gresser debuted its first pinot in 2006. Gresser’s Recumbent Red and other wines are available at a wide variety of locations, from tasting rooms and wine shops in Washington County, to Bend, Eugene, and even as far away as Florida. www.gresservineyard.com

March Theatre Ticket

It was the night of the first full rehearsal for the upcoming production of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest at Theatre in the Grove. The dedicated cast and crew that had already put in countless hours still had a lot of rehearsal time to go, let alone three weekends of performances ahead of them. At that point in the rehearsal, most of the cast was already off stage, sitting in the audience waiting for the director’s notes. It was the final scene of the play (spoiler alert) where Nurse Ratched reveals a new and by no measure improved Randall Patrick McMurphy. Even though they had probably rehearsed that scene more than a dozen times, the moment was still so powerful that one onlooking cast member - who was

clearly moved by the performance - had to wipe a tear from his eye. That’s just how deep this dramatic interpretation of Ken Kesey’s psychological and subversively political classic gets. The complex, multi-faceted characters come to life on the stage, fueled by the chemistry and passion of the cast. “They all have really good instincts,” director Dan Harry, a 30 year TITG veteran, said of the cast. “This is really an actor’s piece, and it’s often referred to as a character study.” Stevo Clay’s spirited performance as the ill-fated McMurphy steals the show, but not without providing ample opportunity for others to shine. Zachary Centers brilliantly portrays the fragile Billy Bibbit. Jim Feemster - a

Kiowa Indian for whom this is his first foray into acting - creates a thundercloud over the stage during his monologues as Chief Bromden, and Pacific University professor Anita Zijdemans Boudreau portrays a Nurse Ratched who under the surface may also be a victim of the system that terrorizes her patients. You won’t want to miss this unforgettable and thought provoking performance of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest at Theatre in the Grove. Shows run at 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday with 2:30 p.m. matinees on Sunday through March 10. Tickets are $14 for adults. This play includes themes and language appropriate for mature audiences only. www.theatreinthegrove.org
