So, after a summer sabbatical from publishing, we've resurfaced to post a brief update from our new home in Maplewood, New Jersey. The town (about 35 minutes from Manhattan by train) is sort of a suburban Park Slope-in-exile, with colonial houses instead of brownstones.
We're slowly acclimating to our new surroundings, enjoying the weekly farmer's market (whose small, but impressive bounty can be seen in the snaps below), and facing the typical ordeals of first-time homeowners, from a broken dishwasher and leaky faucets to tackling landscaping . . . speaking of which, any idea what kind of herb Anya is sniffing above (which has overtaken a good chunk of our garden)? It looks and smells like mint, but tastes awful.
We're picking up and leaving soon for a quick trip to Las Vegas and San Francisco. Upon our return, The Food Section will return to its regular diet of postings, including the occasional foray into the wilds of the Garden State.
