Back On the Wagon

March 30, 2010 § 2 Comments

Alright alright alright. I’m sorry. I told you a long time ago I have a hard time following through on things like this. I’ve been SO busy… working 6-7 days a week, 10-12 hours a day, and I caught a nasty bout of the plague on the plane home from NZ…. AND I’m acting in a play this weekend and have been playing catch up on rehearsal…. 

So… that’s the end of my excuses for not writing. But, guess what? I’m back 🙂

Spring is right around the corner! Its raining now, but its supposed to be 80 this weekend! Lots of rain and lots of bright sunshine make happy crops, and that makes for a happy locavore.  I was getting a little whiny there for a bit about the lack of variety in my diet, but the truth is… I still love winter food. Maybe it’s because I had a great break in New Zealand and was able to stuff myself with juicy plums and tomatoes, but I am still loving kale and mushrooms.  In fact, I made them for dinner tonight with another one of Bev’s amazing pork chops.  It was (again) so incredibly delicious. A little salt and pepper and a flash in the pan, and ta dah! I’m a brilliant chef! 😉 It was an obscene amount of meat for one person though, so I ate half and am saving the rest for a sandwich tomorrow (with plum chutney, mmm).  

In all honesty, it’s been a tough couple of weeks since I’ve been back.  Trying to get back into the groove of cooking, and restocking the fridge, and remembering to make my own food. But Star Hollow is back on an every Saturday schedule, and I’m getting more local food in Sweetgreen every week (now that things are starting to grow) so lunches are easier, and very delicious 🙂

Sorry for the long hiatus. I promise I’ll be better.  I’ve missed talking to you people! 🙂 I’m ready to get back in here and give you all the advice I can on where to find food, who to buy it from, and why buying local, sustainable food is the best thing you can do for your body, your community, and your tastebuds. 

So if you’ve got questions- lay ’em on me. Which CSAs still have availability? When are the farmers markets opening for the season?  What can you expect to be eating in April and May?  It’s all to come.  Thanks for sticking with me!

xoxo Erin

    Well, it’s about G.. D… time! I know you’ve been traveling, and sick, and busy…but what about us? How are we to stay on the sustainable food wagon w/o your advice, support, and example!

    Sorry for the rant. Glad you’re back, healthy, and online. Saw you at Pilgrims yesterday but couldn’t fight through your crowd of admirers to greet you. Consider yourself greeted.

    [Don’t tell him I told you, but James White made reservations for a big group of Pilgrims at Annie’s Paramount Steakhouse for “Dining Out for Life.” I confess to having had a platter with two (2) big pork chops. Mea culpa!]
