Its Friday ... you know the drill by now ...
As it turns out, the husband is working at home today and we're fighting for the laptop. I guess I need to let him win since he's actually earning money while he writes!
Its another glorious day here in NYC, August has been just lovely, so I'm heading down to the Union Square farmer's market to score some more native corn. Its not SB approved, but I don't care - native corn season is short and sweet and I like to take full advantage of it.
Which brings me to my question of the day. This one was actually posed by Tracy of Pinot & Pineapple yesterday ... it concerns local v.s. organic produce. Which is the "greener" option? If you could only choose one, either a locally raised product, or an organic product which was raised elsewhere, which would you choose and why? Hit the link and read Tracy's post - and share your thoughts on the matter.
I try to buy produce that is both local and organic ... but its not always possible. In the summer, I tend to buy local - almost by default - because there's so much available and I love to shop the farmer's markets and local farm stands when I'm out and about. In other seasons, I will generally opt for organic where possible.
Meanwhile, I'm also on another quest today. I'm in search of roasted carob powder. Deb, from Altered Plates, posted a wonderful brownie recipe yesterday that is both flour and sugar free. Hit the link and take a look. I'm dying to try this recipe and my heart will be broken if I can't find the carob powder. Wish me luck!
So that's my plan for the day. I've given you your homework assignments, and plenty of time to complete them ... surf on, hungry readers, and I'll see you on Monday!
