Train travel is one of my all time favorite ways to get from point A. to point B. ( thanks, middle school algebra). One of the best parts of the trip is deciding what types of edibles to bring along to nibble upon while en-route. This particular journey to Chicago called for pumpkin seeds, smoked kielbasa ( I love stinking up the train car with the smell of Eastern European smoked meats), hard boiled eggs (laid fresh from a very talented South City St. Louis chicken), Afghani flatbread, a hunk of pepperjack cheese, butter and mustard. Alllllllllll abord!

Locally Grown Literature

Fundraising design and event coordination for St. Louis independent bookstore, the Book House, featuring more than 2o “locally grown” authors in support of the construction of the book store’s new location.

In keeping with the “locally grown” theme the event also features local beer samplings from Schlafly Brewery and silent auction items from area businesses.

South City Breakfast

This is what breakfast looks like in South City, STL.  Thanks to my proximity to Tower Grove Farmer’s Market, this mornings breakfast was made up of farm fresh eggs, ridiculously crisp spiced dill pickles and old world style bagels from Black Bear Bakery… all enjoyed from my breezy back porch.
