Hi, I’m Diane.  Welcome to Spoon & Chair!

I grew up on a small farm in Missouri where my parents raised most of the food my family ate.  We were Animal, Vegetable, Miracle when it was just a way of life, not a project or a political statement.

Being a typical, ungrateful child (are there any other kind?) I didn’t appreciate what I had.  I longed to leave the farm and run off to the city where men wore suits, women got manicures and no one spent their days snapping green beans or plucking chickens.  I succeeded and now work and live in Washington, DC (and get manicures almost every week).

This blog is about celebrating the best of all of the places I’ve been lucky enough to call home.  Honoring my rural roots while embracing the opportunities my urban life offers me in food, entertaining, home and hospitality.  So grab a spoon, pull up a chair, and join me as I feed my appetite for home.

Who says farm life isn't glamorous?

  1. Thank you for your compliments about my work as viewed at Belle Cose in Jackson Hole. The store is wonderful as is the owner and her crew. My best!

  3. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  4. This blog has got a lot of very useful information on it. Thank you for sharing it with me.

  5. Awesome post . Thanks for, writing on my blog page dude. I shall email you soon. I didnt realise that.

  6. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.
