Welcome Spring 2011!

Hello fellow locavores and Happy Spring! I know I seem to have been hibernating for the winter, waiting until I could post my local-eating recipes again. I have good news and bad news for you... First, the bad news... our family has decided not to join the Jugbay CSA again this season, not because it's not fantastic but due to some hiccups in logistics of getting over to do the pick up during the week. We love farmer Scott and Tanya and appreciate all that they have done these past few years to turn us on to local eating. The good news is that we'll continue to shop for fresh, delicious and LOCAL food at Eastern Market and are looking into some home delivery options (such as Washington Green Grocer and Arganica) so stay tuned. In other news, I just bought a FOOD DEHYDRATOR and I am very excited to begin drying fresh, mostly local foods for snacks and for winter storage. So, keep your eyes peeled for my many new adventures I will soon be having with MR. HOT AIR!
Keep cooking!
