First, let me say, I am in a cooking â€” and blogging â€” rut.
My kitchen started to fall into disarray while my mother-in-law was visiting: the sink and counter filled with dishes, the floor became a dumping ground for the stuff we bought while she was here. It fell even further into decay when my husband worked late for almost a week straight, which meant a week of ordering oh-god-so-hungry-get-whatever-take-out-you-want at 9pm and calling it dinner. Yesterday, I composted or threw out more food than I’d like to admit to, leaving my fridge pretty barren.
Which, I guess, is a pretty good place to start if I’m buying all local, all week.
So. Seeing as Saturday is the biggest Greenmarket day of the week, I might pick up a few things tomorrow and hold onto them until the official start of the Eat Local Challenge week. Right now, my shopping list looks like this:
- a chicken
- a dozen eggs
- whatever fruits and vegetables look good
- cheese (maybe)
Otherwise, I guess I’m just going to buy whatever looks good, within reason.
I’m really eager to see how this is going to turn out.
