Over the last week I’ve definitely been stretched in my ability to find and acquire foods for my family.
Some things are very easy, like milk and beef and produce. Everything else seems SO hard.Like chicken. The farmer I mentioned previously called me later that day (figures) and I was supposed to meet him at the farmer’s market yesterday. And he was not there.
So instead of doing chicken twice a week like usual, we’ve either had more beef, or (much to Todd’s chagrin) not had meat at all.
We also decided that with salsa season upon us, that we would purchase tortilla chips. A Michigan made brand from a local store. not perfect, but since fresh salsa is our favorite thing ever, it’s what we’re doing.
We also had a birthday on Monday here in our house, so we also had cake and ice cream. Yes, yes we did.
I’m learning how difficult it can be to shop for food when you don’t just head to the nearest super market!
How are you doing buying local foods? What have been your biggest struggles?
