What I’m Digging
Happy Friday, friends! What a week it has been. All good, all very busy. The crew from Whole Foods‘ online magazine, Dark Rye, came over today. They’re here for the weekend, filming me, the property, and a pickling party I’m throwing tomorrow. The video they’re creating will appear in their holiday issue, due out in November. I’m SO excited!
Grace is so wonderful and is hosting a giveaway of five autographed copies of A Year of Pies over on Design Sponge. I hope you all head over there and enter! Also, Tim, who contributed a guest recipe in the book, is chatting about it over on Lottie & Doof. Go for my Blackberry Sonker with Dip recipe and stay for the awesomeness that is his blog.
Otherwise, here’s a smattering of this’s and that’s that grabbed my attention this week:
*Natalie Coughlin wrangles chickens and wins gold medals.
*A summer pie potluck!
*DIY furniture polish.
*Harvesting summer veggies.
*A carpet made of flowers!
*I’ve yet to meet a cornmeal biscotti I didn’t like.
*Figs for breast health-who knew?
*Ricky & Jerry getting coffee (via Victoria).
*Fig & honey cream cheese (via Summer).
Have you gotten into the summer Olympics? I sure have. I’m not typically a team/competitive sports person, but, each night, I find myself piling onto the couch with Hubs to watch Michael Phelps become a torpedo and Gabby Douglas do her thing. Suddenly I’m talking about people “sticking it” and making “tight turns.” Who am I?
Wherever you go this weekend, whatever you do, and whomever you do it with, may it be grand!
