Today I’m writing you from balmy Seattle, where the hubby and I brought the kids for a week to soak up some humidity-free sunshine and spend time with extended family to close out our summer. And what a summer it’s been. This summer I fell in love — hard — with our grill, thanks to David Guas. We spent a sweaty few days in Charleston only to grieve with our friends and former neighbors over a terrible tragedy. I went to Wooster, Ohio and learned about the glory that is Certified Angus Beef. And yes, I have many, many plans to eat my way through Seattle. Stay tuned.
