Yesterday I had:
- coffee (not fair trade, but this is the last can that won't be)
- a Cameo apple (grown in Washington which, according to simplesteps.org, are possibly in season, although not local.)
- a piece of Cascade Pride bread (not local)
- a bowl of leftover "ketchup soup" (Other than the milk, none of the ingredients were local or in season)
- lots of tap water
- a couple of Hershey's kisses (*sigh*, not local, obv.)
- a beef roast (from the gift of meat, don't know where it's from, I'll find out when the 'rents return to town.) with potatoes (which simplesteps says are never in season in Idaho...wth?) carrots (organic, in season, but not local), zucchini (again, not local or in season), organic chicken broth (not.local.)
- granola bar (bah.)
I planned three meatless meals this week, one of which turned carnivorous when we realized the ham in the fridge was about to expire so we slapped it on our grilled cheese. We had Winter Soup and homemade bread Monday, and we're having homemade mac and cheese with green beans tonight.
I am beyond frustrated. Due to the random potato thing, I don't trust simplesteps.org. I'm trying to feed us healthier, less processed foods, but I'm agitated because I don't know how to eat in season. I'm pissed, frankly, although at who or what, I don't know.
