Day Four

As you can see, dinner tonight was amazing, and the best part was that I didn't even have to cook! My sweetheart Stanley gets full credit for this meal.

I've said this before, and I'll say it again - the pork that we get from The Rustic Table, our meat CSA, is out of this world. Seriously. It is from heritage Mulefoot hogs raised on pasture - and oh my god, is it good. He grilled it with just a little parsley. The flavor of the meat is so outstanding it really doesn't need any fancy seasonings.

He also grilled some sweet corn that our neighbors dropped off - they grew it! The potatoes are cooked with sunflower oil and sage, in a pan on the grill. (can you tell Stanley likes to grill? He's really good at it, so I can't complain.) No one else in the house likes straight tomato, so I had to eat all of one of the giant Candystripes all by myself. No trouble at all... the flavor of these tomatoes is outstanding - sweet, relatively low acid, yum.

Breakfast was the same as previous days: yogurt, blueberries, raspberries, flax seeds, and honey. Boring I know, but I thrive on routine in the morning.

I forgot to bring anything to work for lunch, but lucky for me the Willy Street Deli has a few 100% local salads on the menu this month (did I mention that I manage that deli?). I had a salad of potatoes, sorrel, and sunflower oil; and also a "Wisconsin Caprese" salad, with tomatoes, basil, fresh mozzarella, and sunflower oil. I love to cook, but it's nice to have other people prepare food for me once in a while!

  1. I find that whenever I try to kick my caffeine habit, the easiest way to avoid headaches is to take Excedrin, because it's full of caffeine. As long as you don't get gelcaps, it's easy to cut the pills into halves and quarters, so you can taper your daily dose of caffeine down slowly and prevent the headaches, without just perpetuating your addiction. I hope you headaches have stopped, but if not maybe this will help :0)
