Saturday, September 1: What is different?

We went to our two markets this morning as usual. The bright sun lit up the vegetables and we had several wonderful conversations with people who have been following our story. What was different about this Saturday? Well, I had already had a pot of coffee by the time we arrived at 7:30 am! We also stopped in at Cafe Soleil for croissants (oh how we've missed you!) Other than that is was business as usual. We bought a quart of chocolate milk today and some prepared pasta from Peter Pasta himself. We also bought cheese and yogurt and milk and apples and pork and bok choi and carrots and jicama and much more. The bounty continues . . .

Way to go on the month of local eating! I wasn't surprised to see that pasta was one of the things you bought post-experiment. I'm making my own from local grains as part of my own local eating experiment (a year of eating from within 250 miles of Brooklyn, NY). The pasta is good, but hugely time consuming. I will never take pasta (or milled flour) for granted again!
