Nothing I Can Do About it Now

Eating locally has been going pretty damn well. Not the easiest thing to do, but not as hard as I feared either.

There are a ton of winter vegetables in season at the farmer’s market – broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, different types of greens, beets and sweet potatoes. Thanks to greenhouses, tomatoes haven’t been hard to come by, and citrus from South Texas is in season too.  Hooray for grapefruit! We treated ourselves to a bunch of different meats and cheeses at the Farmer’s Market we’d normally pass up because of the price. Planned dinners this week include BLTs with a side of roasted cauliflower, stew with locally baked bread (we have NOT been able to find any bread made with wheat grown in Texas yet) and sausage with mustard potatoes and sauerkraut.

 The pressure we’ve put on ourselves to focus so closely on what we’re eating has paid off in some really good meals, and treats like fresh-squeezed orange juice – I would never in a million years bother to make fresh orange juice if it wasn’t the only way I could get it right now.

  1. Your sausage meal sounds very Central Texan.

    The problem with fresh orange juice — which is sold literally on street corners down in these parts — is that once you have it, nothing will ever compare.

  2. What a great idea… those BLT’s sound good and I haven’t had a grapefruit forever.
