You'll be hearing from the staff at FOOD52 every week in Too Many Cooks, our group column in which we pool our answers to questions about food, cooking, life, and more.
This week is Summer Week at Food52, which means, basically, that the lot of us are off summering -- some of us go to Maine, others to Hawaii, but all of us are keeping one eye on the site, and the other on our stocked coolers and full drinks. Naturally, we thought it would be fun to give you a bunch of pictures of us adventuring while we adventure. It's meta, we know. Below is what happens when you leave the Food52 staff up to their own devices on a farm, at a rest stop, and within 10 feet of barbecue.

Soon after, Kristen and Nozlee follow suit, with ribs. (And, we'll add that a Food52 company outing is never complete without matching navy stripes.)

Happy chickens! Plus more happy chickens.
And, as a fitting end to our bucolic adventures, Nozlee snapped this photo capturing quintessential farm life:
I have a thing for most foods topped with a fried egg, a strange disdain for overly soupy tomato sauce, and I can never make it home without ripping off the end of a newly-bought baguette. I like spoons very much.
