The Eatsdropper is a pork-atarian

Is it just me, or are the stone fruit off the freaking hook this year? It is summer's greatest gift, and also one of it's greatest poignancies, as the season is all too short, and soon we'll be left with just the sweet, juicy, sticky memories. Thanks to my diligent Eatsdroppers, another ephemeral thing is forever preserved; here's a summer crop. As always, send in your most delectable overheard morsels to eatsdropper-at-seantimberlake-dot-com. Cheers!
