I've been thinking about what made an initially really tough challenge (four years ago) easier and easier as each year has gone by and determined that it was learning what others eat. I can recall participating in the Challenge in 2007, listening to my tummy growling, and thinking, "What are my friends eating. They must have come up with something." Consequently, starting tomorrow I will post as often as I can--trying for daily--what I am eating. Hopefully this will offer some creative ideas and reassurances that there is no starving while taking the Eat Local Challenge. I hope that others will share their culinary ideas as well.

The chickens are White Plymouth Rock breed as well as Delawares. You can check out their blog at mcdowellfamilyfarm.blogspot.com

I just made a whole bunch of updates to the Food Source Lists (find them in the left-hand sidebar--scroll down). If you're shopping this week to prepare you for the Challenge, you may want to plan your shopping by visiting these lists first...And you may be surprised at just how much delicious, local fare there is!
