A few weeks back I joined the 5th Annual Dark Days of Winter Eat Local Challenge - and it started Sunday! The folks over at Urban Henry have been doing this for 5 years, and this is my first go at it. Once a week I'm challenged to make a sustainable, local(radius of 150 miles), organic, ethical meal; breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Looks like all of my canning and preserving will come in handy, but this will certainly be chalkenging. My first post will be this Friday!
Know of any DC/Baltimore area Farmer's Markets? I'm also looking for local cheese and meat purveyors. Post or email me your recs, and recipes - I'll need them from now through March 2012!
