Eating Local – A Trip to the Baltimore Farmers’ Market

We’ve been trying as hard as we can to put money into our local economy with our purchases. Sometimes financial concerns make that hard, but it’s something we believe in. The Farmers’ Market is a great way to get healthy local food, and Baltimore has got a really great one. This weekend we stopped by to get some great fresh, local food, and we used it all to make ourselves a healthy, tasty vegan meal. We’ll put the recipe up tomorrow. For now, here’s a preview of the beautiful food we used to assemble our meal.

Heirloom tomatoes, Italian basil, local semolina bread, bell peppers, lobster mushrooms, olive oil, nuts, and wine. If you’ve got a guess as to what we made with all this, let us know. Tune back in tomorrow for the recipe!

Passing on Good Habits

At our local library’s play area this weekend, Watson played in the kitchen for a bit. After a bit, he found a jar, put some toy salad ingredients in it, and presented it to us, saying, “This is for you to take to work.”

We must be doing something right, letting him watch us make delicious, healthy vegan food, even if often he’s too stubborn to eat it himself. Parenting is weird, y’all.
