This week, I have no recipes, just a slew of pictures. I spent some much needed time with my family in the country, away from the city this weekend. It felt like ages since I was last on a farm. We went to Stone Barns in Tarrytown, the 80-acre farm that belongs to Chef Dan Barber and his family. They have successfully turned their family property to a working educational, nonprofit institution. I could have stayed there forever. The leaves are turning now and they were decorating the restaurant and the outdoor stone patio for a wedding that day. It was inspiring to see a historical site like that so well maintained and bursting with energy and vitality. I hope someday I’ll be able to have my own garden. I can’t imagine the feeling of satisfaction to waltz out the front door and pick my own lettuce for a supper salad.
