Summer in the produce department
It’s pretty great, right? Cherries and plums, peaches and corn. Finally. This year, my dad’s garden also produced mini green peppers, mini Japanese eggplant, and the usual heap of tomatoes that I love.
Marni added to the pleasure with a hostess/housewarming gift to hold my summer harvest: this ceramic “strawberry basket” from Anthro. I love it so much and wish strawberries came to the supermarket in baskets like this still.
Also from Ms. Dreamday: grapefruit dish soap in a wine bottle adorned with old book pages (also from Anthropologie.)
I thanked her by introducing her to THE summer cocktail of doom: Greyhounds at The Vig, and also Hillstone. Think grapefruit juice squeezed while you watch + vodka + ice = people have been known to ask the bartender if they left the liquor out on accident.
