Slow Food International Menu For Change Photo Roundup

The last time you heard from me, I mentioned I was participating in a Slow Food International challenge. The challenge was to cook two meals a week, for three weeks, using ingredients from within a 200-mile radius of my home. I’ve been sharing photos of these meals on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, but in case ...

Farmers’ Market/CSA Report #13, September 2017

The growing season is winding down here in northern New England. But there were still some lovely surprises waiting at the farmers’ market and the CSA this week. There is a new bread vendor at the farmers’ market, and that loaf of bread was as crusty and yeasty and chewy as it looks, fantastic slathered ...

Farmers’ Market/CSA Report #9, August 2017

Being at the farm, or the farmers' market, provides me so much more than food. The farmers' market is a chance for social connection, a community of people who value food, and feeding people, the way I do.

Behold, the fine fruits, vegetables, meats, cheeses, ...

Farmers’ Market/CSA Report #6, July 2017

  This week’s Farmers’ Market offering is purposely low on vegetables. The CSA share from last week was so generous that we were still working on it when I went to the market Saturday. But I did not come away empty-handed. The peaches and berries are so abundant this year, something I am definitely thankful ...

Farmers’ Market/CSA Report #5, July 2017

We’ve had cloudy, gray, rainy weather for a few days now, with temperatures cooler than normal for this time of year. Fruits and vegetables need sunshine to ripen, so it was not a surprise that some summer produce is a bit slow arriving at the market. Fortunately, I did find lots of things I can ...

Farmers’ Market/CSA Report #4, July 2017

This post is a bit tardy, as I have been completely obsessed with preparing myself for the return of Game of Thrones this Sunday night. When I say obsessed, I mean binge-watching Season 6 so I can remember all the absolutely awesome stuff that happened, and all the horrific evil stuff that happened, and to ...
