I fought the fridge ...

and it didn't exactly win, but I just don't want to do semi-serious cooking after dealing with some of that.

Instead I am consoling myself with

Le Menu Locavore des Boites "CSA" du Dimanche

Clark Summit Farm rib-eye steak (Marin)
Terra Firma Farms red potatoes (Yolo)
Terra Firma Farms green beans (Yolo)

Sierra Vista Winery Fleur du Montagne '04 (Placer)

If I feel like dessert I have some lovely Elephant Heart plums from Blossom Bluff (Fresno County). But I'm thinking they're breakfast, with yogurt and granola (I am currently really loving TJ's "Gluten Free, Fruits and Nuts").

If I get too precious about the "eating local" thing, someone slap me, okay? But I like doing it as much as possible - it puts me in mind more of the local, seasonal eating of my childhood.

Mmm, that sounds so good. We live in a great agricultural area, we should try to buy local more often.

I get Tasty Meats once a month through a seperate arrangement. cat_herder laughed at me because she took me there when my car was dead and I really do ring a doorbell on someone's side door in a slightly off neighborhood and get a bag handed to me. If I'd realized the package had two steaks I might have had her over ;).

"The first rule of Meat Club is nobody talks about Meat Club."

I was thinking of switching to the meat club that ayse is in now so I can get lamb and goat occasionally.
