What I’m Digging

Happy Friday, friends! It’s been unseasonably warm here this week. Which works fine by me. Planting kale, chard, and brussels sprouts or sipping hard cider in 70 degree weather is some kind of wonderful.

I’ve got a Small Measures post up on Design Sponge. Today I’m sharing my recipe for homemade chai. We drink cup after cup of this all season long. Warms the body and the soul, promise.

In other news, here’s a smattering of this’s and that’s that caught my attention this week:
*Fight the flu with food.
*Easy pasta from scratch.
*8 best fall foods.
*Lady Gaga is getting into the bottled water business (I hope the bottle is compostable!).
*Tanya’s blog is truly lovely.
*Christopher Kimball’s approach to food (it’s a long, but interesting read).
*Edible Selby in person!
*Pumpkin + donut=happiness.
*Really excited about this book.

We’re hoping to visit Hickory Nut Gap Farm on Sunday. It’s the last of their Harvest farm days, with face-painting, a pumpkin patch, hard cider, and more. Looks like loads of fun.

Wherever you go, whatever you do, and whomever you do it with, may it be grand!
