There is a tremendous amount of food every week that goes from our kitchen to our dining room table. We have an unusual situation in that all seven of us are home most of the day, every day. With the exception of breakfast, we eat all of our meals together as a family. We spend about $1,200.00 on food every month. We also use food we grow on our micro urban farm as much as possible. We have the remainder of a rhubarb crisp on the kitchen counter. The rhubarb we grew here.
We make an effort to purchase organic locally grown food as much as possible. We choose to shop at our neighborhood grocery store and the farmers market. We do not have a car to drive out to the big box stores where the food is less expensive and besides we do not see a future in those stores. Those stores do not have a good vibe and force people to use their cars. Our farmers market is right in our neighborhood and is one of our favorite places in the whole city.
Good food prepared with love and attention to detail. This kind of cooking takes time but it is time well spent because we are literally made out of the food we eat. We are after all becoming what we eat
