I bought spinach and lettuce, tomatoes and cucumbers, and a half dozen eggs. All local, all organic.
I did not take into account the salad dressing. I hemmed and hawed for a bit, ultimately decided to man up and go without. I added a drizzle of olive oil, a touch of salt and dug in.
Wow! Local tomatoes are really good! I wish I had bought more. Sometimes I like to snack on just a slice of tomato with a bit of salt and pepper.
So, week one, meal one: DONE. Simple, perhaps, but satisfying and delicious nonetheless. I will become more adventurous once wedding season is behind me and I have a bit more free time. I had also glossed over the fact that I am allowed to use spices, so that opens up a lot of new possibilities.
I still have lots of salad ingredients, so I will be eating mostly local lunches for a few more days. But with dressing. I will have to figure out how to make a salad dressing with local ingredients; I am an addict.
