"Are you doing the 100-mile challenge?" asked the woman manning the Olsen Farms booth at the Spokane Farmers Market this morning. I had asked her where Olsen Farms was. It looks like the word is out.
Between the Farmers Market, Fresh Abundance, and a few places up on Greenbluff, I managed to get plenty of qualifying foods. The milk will be interesting. The label says to "Shake well". The apple cider replaces my morning tea. Apples and peaches for daytime snacks. Lunch shouldn't be a problem since I always make extra for dinner so I have lunch the following day.
The only thing I'm missing is fresh chicken and eggs. I couldn't find any today. And if I can't locate any I'll pick up more beef or maybe try some goat. Veggies won't be a problem, especially with the massive amounts of zucchini, yellow squash and tomatoes in the garden. The carrots are coming in, too.
My main concern is seasoning. I'm not that up on all the herbs. But it's only five days so I'll survive. I'm betting the kids grab for the salt and pepper shakers. Not that I'll blame them.
Guess which daughter thought adding a Butterfinger to the mix would be pretty funny.
