The plums at the first farm stand we stopped at kind of blew me away they were so beautiful. I knew they would be grand sitting in a glass bowl on the counter for all to enjoy before becoming part of a chicken dish where they will get baked alongside green olives. Funny story about the bowl. I bought it during our May stay a few months ago at my beloved Red Chair on Warren in Hudson. I had eyed it before and that was the time to make it ours. Home it came and I was so excited. Quickly upon arriving at the house it got unpacked and went right into the sink to wash. It was actually a pedestal bowl, and within seconds I accidentally hit the bottom of the pedestal against the wall of the sink and snap! Off it went. Hugely lucky it was a clean break and the bowl portion was unscathed. Our ‘use it and love it and if it breaks so be it’ policy went into play within moments.
