To the woods of New Jersey.

I grew up surrounded by woods and farmland. Last weekend I ducked away from the chaos of New York City, and headed here for some much needed R&R...
Taking advantage of this Indian Summer, a few friends and I went on a night hike through the acres and acres of my friend Ashley's farm. They harvest wheat (which my favorite beer Blue Moon might be using soon!) and sweet corn (the very best).While helping my parents pack for their move, I sorted, tossed, and "stole." My favorite snag was an original Michael Graves Tea Kettle, designed--and purchased by my aunt Lolly for my grandmother--in 1985 (also the year I was born). Alessi just started making them again and you can purchase one here.
