Newsday back-to-school lunchbox story, and even my nieces in East Hampton have aged out of the job. So I was grateful to some generous Sag Harbor parents who lent me their very cute child for our photo shoot a few weeks ago. But do you think she is upstaging my roast beef sandwich on a mini-bagel?

our very skillful dentist. It all seemed worthwhile when she got her chocolate milkshake at Bay Burger. And I couldn't resist buying a bottle of locally made Sweet 'tauk lemonade as a treat for myself.

At the Common Table dinner last night. Good company and food that was so much nicer than what my jet-lagged self could have thrown together! I probably ate more than my fair share of scallop ceviche with cilantro, before sitting down at the long table to enjoy tomatoes and mozzarella, striped bass, roasted potatoes, and panna cotta with rhubarb and peaches from the farm. And I took home some leftover pickled beets, which may well become a goat cheese and beet salad in an hour or two.
