- several heads of garlic
- 2 blue potatoes
- bay leaves, oregano, and basil
...and between my ambivalence toward root vegetables and everyone moping around grumbling about diets, i haven't felt completely inspired lately. it's 60 degrees outside, too (!), so comfort food seems a little much. luckily for us here in bloomington, we have another Dine Local Night coming up, january 16th.*
what have YOU been making lately that you love?
my dear husband bought me the veganomicon for christmas, and though many of the recipes call for ingredients we don't normally have around the house, i'll have some fun stuff to try out this week. when we're not eating fake chicken patties and tater tots.
oh, come on. they're organic tater tots! and they were on sale! don't look at me like that. no one here ever claimed to be a saint.
head to one of the below restaurants on thursday, january 17th, and ask for the local special. 5% of proceeds will go to the Local Growers Guild.
FARM Bloomington (oooh, we're so going there for the opening/my birthday)
New Day Meadery (a little googling tells me they'll be at the winter market at harmony school, too.)
Nick's English Hut (still holding out for my mellencamp sighting!)
One World Enterprises (i.e., lennie's. pizza express? that would be awesome.)

before leaving town, we trekked down to marche provisions, a new endeavour from the marche empire. i have a little history with said empire, having worked at the marche cafe when i first moved to eugene. we nabbed a macaroon at the cafe (oooh, the macaroons. why didn't i buy ten? i don't even like macaroons except for these), then went downstairs to check out "provisions." wow. i'm impressed. prepared soups and ice cream made in-house, imported tasty treats, a salad bar, all kinds of salt by the ounce, a cheese and charcuterie counter - i could have cried. everything looked so fantastic. (sigh.)
we loved seeing our friends and family so much, and wished we could have seen everyone just a little more. next time! hey, why don't you come visit, anyways?
happy new year to everyone out there! i resolve to try a lot of new things this year, so stay tuned.
