The book event in Dallas last week was fantastic. Lots of friends from Ketchum and wonderful guests. A great crowd. Wine tasting of Stagecoach Vineyards' Veraison Synchrony (2004) was just yummy. I highly recommend it.

Too Busy to Shop? Try Good Apples

Grocery shopping has become such a drag for a busy woman, especially since my family seems to be drinking up the milk at a record pace. What was once a week is now at least a twice a week stop. I try to stock up on canned and staple items for my pantry, but it always seems to be a losing battle.

That's why I've come to love Good Apples, the Virtual Farmers Market. I order select items on a Monday or Tuesday and they are delivered to my office on Thursday. It saves me from that extra, very aggravating stop at the grocery store and the products offered are fresh and organic.

What are you doing to save time when shopping for groceries?
