Dark Days Challenge

This is a challenge to eat locally-grown or produced foods for 90% of a meal once a week in the winter: quite a challenge in the Northeast!

More information can be found here. Thanks to my pal Zimra for keeping track of this stuff.

Since I can get stuff from the farmers' markets in Boston through Thanksgiving week, it will not be too difficult in the first few months. I know there is also plenty of locally produced dairy produce in our area we can get from Indian Ladders Farms. Locally-raised meat and poultry will be tough but I will try.

Potato-leek soup! Apple crisp! Kale over pasta! Roasted winter vegetables! Yum.
