I'm a little behind on this post--Week 5 was the week between Christmas and New Year's, and my diet that week consisted of dessert, butter, gravy, dessert, and meat with a few starchy vegetables thrown in for good measure. And I also had dessert.
Back to the Eat Local Challenge--I haven't been able to go to the farmers' market because it is open on Sundays, and Christmas and New Year's Day fell on Sunday this year. And I didn't feel like defrosting any of the locally-sourced foods I have stored. I also just wanted to find a light meal after all the holiday excess. So this all-local meal consisted of VA wine, cheese, and apples. This was a new cheese that I tried--it's called Piedmont from the Everona Diary in Virginia, and is soft in texture and sharp in taste. I can't wait to go buy more from this dairy .
Here's wishing everyone a prosperous 2012! I think this is going to be the best year ever.
p.s. Interesting post about the story behind good luck foods that people eat on New Year's Day.
