Breakfast: No tea. :-( A glass of apple cider made by Harvest House up on Greenbluff.
Morning snack: A Harvest House peach (I don't remember the type, but it was awesome) and a Walters Fruit Ranch Early Golden apple. Both places are on Greenbluff.
Lunch: Yesterday I slow cooked some short ribs I got from Olsen Farms (Colville) along with some red potatoes, sweet onion, and fresh chopped parsley from Tolstoy Farms (Davenport). I divided it in half and one half was my lunch today. With lunch was another glass of Harvest House apple cider.
Afternoon snack: Another Early Golden apple.
Dinner: Ground beef from Olsen Farms mixed with chopped sweet onion and garlic from Tolstoy Farms. Tomatoes and green beans from the garden. Washed down with whole milk from Spokane Family Farm. Josh passed on the burgers since they contained chopped onions. Steph wasn't hungry. I'm sensing a break in ranks already.
I have to echo some of Bart and Paul's (un)sustainability sentiments. I spent Saturday driving between the Spokane Farmers Market downtown, Fresh Abundance on Division, and a number of fruit ranches on Greenbluff. But I think I could make it work with better planning and contacts. The Spokane Farmers Market is open 8:00 am to 1:00 pm on Wednesday if you are, like me, looking for more food. Geneva clued me in to checking craigslist for eggs. I did and scored a dozen farm fresh eggs at lunchtime today. Hard boiled eggs will be a nice addition to as well as be more filling than the peaches and apples I'm snacking on. Since I ride my bike I was careful taking them home. I didn't want to repeat John's bad experience. (Bummer, due to an unfortunate circumstance John is already out.)
Freaky moment of the evening: After the boiling, one of the eggs was cracked open and Stephanie discovered it was way more chicken than egg. She buried it and now I'm a chicken murderer.
And that just makes the caffeine withdrawal headache all the more special.
