Fall’s coming and the eating is fine. Last night we ate hot forkfuls of smoky orange-yolk eggs, gathered in the backyard and fried with butter and chopped basil. The grill is set under the pecan trees, and we broke pecan twigs onto the coals, then sat at the picnic table to wait and watch the fire.


This morning, something sweet. I’ve been making yogurt for a couple of years, this latest batch completely rich with whole milk and heavy cream. On the bread is the last of the raspberry jam from a Maine farm visited one rainy morning in July. I tasted the fading summer with every bite.

Since mid-summer, I’ve been collaborating on a project with Stitch Design Co., and the first pieces are now in print and online. The materials are for the 2009 InShow, the AIGA of South Carolina’s annual design awards. The website is up, and this week the printed call-for-entries was mailed to designers across the state.

We’re having a lot of fun with this project. Everything has a retro-grocery look, and the remaining pieces include an invitation to the Grocer’s Gala in November (the awards party). I’m hoping there will be dancing in the aisles.
