Another "Eat Local" Challenge


I’ve been reading some blogs by other "eat local" fans. Seems like it’s mostly women with small children, or maybe those are just the blogs that appeal to me. Reading blogs is a much more entertaining way to waste time than playing solitaire! (Not that I’m advocating wasting time, but it's nice to "veg out" when the active toddler finally takes a nap! Now that I think of it, maybe that's what these other authors with small children are doing, too!) Anyway, the author of one blog has begun her own wintertime eat local challenge. (http://urbanhennery.wordpress.com/2007/10/08/dark-days-of-winter-eat-local-challenge/)

It’s pretty easy to eat locally grown food during the growing season, but obviously it’s harder during the winter. Especially if you haven’t already loaded up your pantry and freezer with preserved foods! In this new challenge, you make up your own rules. For example, Ms. Hennery is going to cook one local meal per week and write about it. I’m considering joining her challenge, but haven’t decided what approach to take. Stay tuned!
