shop local, support your neighbors

just us hens

Tonight we had a cheddar cheese, onion, chives and cilantro omelet, with toast and thick cherry jam. The toast came from a local bakery that is also a  coffee shop and the little market I work for resells the bread to local people that live 20 miles north of Taos, New Mexico.  The eggs from the omelet come from a fellow worker that has a little ranch that creates fresh eggs, goats milk and cheese.  The butter is from an Australian Butter in a Can Company that we buy on line.  The cherry jam, cheddar cheese and cilantro are bought in the local super market. And the last, but not least, the garnish of chives and little-bitty cherry tomatoes are from out own little Sugar-Shack Rancho out here in the bush….

    If you know the hen who lays your eggs, you don’t have to worry about salmonella or nation-wide recalls of eggs. I’ve become more and more dedicated to searching out local goods and produce. No land for a garden for me, but I know a woman about ten miles north who has great gardens, laying hens and such. And now we have a small farmer’s market where there are goat cheese and milk, home-baked breads, etc.
    Things are a little slim now – the heat finished off most of the fruit and veggies – but it’s soon time for winter gardens to go in.

    I’m interested in the Butter in a Can. When I lived in Liberia, we got our bacon in a can – it was from Denmark, I believe. Unroll and cook! And we got milk from South Africa in paper, aseptic packaging. Ever so much better than the dried.

    You’ve made me want to bake bread!

    I like your outlook on buying and eating “local”. Just reading Barbara Kingsolver´s “Animal, Vegetable, Miracle”, a wonderful and inspiring book in this sense of supporting one´s neighbours or having one´s own garden, whenever possible, of course.
