One Local Summer Lunch

It's still early here in Michigan for eating local. Not that you can't do it, because you can - it's just a little short on the fresh fruit and veggie angle. So, this week's feature is just a quick (and very messy!) snapshot of my lunch on Tuesday. All 4 boys were at school, my husband had a lunch meeting, so I had the house to myself! So, not only was this a local lunch, but it was a calm and quiet lunch. Here is what I made:

Eggs - East River Organics
Butter - Calders
Jam - Cherry Republic - Cherry Peach
Bread - Westwind Milling
Cheese - Gouda from Grassfields

Do I get bonus points in that every item on my plate is from my home state?? OK, so I made it through this week, now that the weather is warm, bring on the fruites and veggies please!

I really admire your commitment to eating locally! I haven't quite gotten there yet. I do LOVE Craigslist, and I also consign as much as my kids' clothes and toys as I can. You have a nice blog.

Good for you, EB! That's awesome that you are doing the challenge and I wish you many fruits and veggies in the coming months. :)

What a great lunch! The cherry and peach jam sounds particularly yummy.
