Locavore 100-Mile Challenge

Last night I asked the family if they'd be willing to join me in the challenge. I know they wouldn't be able to do that for every meal so I proposed they do so just for the dinner meal. Kathy declined, but Josh and Steph said they'd like to give it a try. Then I explained how it applied to everything, including salt, pepper and seasonings. (Hopefully the challenge organizer(s) will grant special dispensation for salt. Please??? Look at its history. It has always been a traded commodity.) The enthusiasm meter dropped significantly but they're still willing to give it a shot.

So this weekend we're hitting the farmers market and probably Fresh Abundance because there's no way I could live off just the tomatoes, green beans and squash growing in the garden. Kathy, on the other hand, would be okay with that because she doesn't care for meat that much. Next week's dinner meals will be interesting and hopefully not too bland.

And when it's all over we can make up for all that good food by going to Pig Out In The Park the next week. Whoo-hoo!
