the sweet taste of not eating local

I started to feel guilty today eating my little breakfast of figs from California, strawberries from Quebec, and yogurt from Greece.

But then I was all like, f*ck that. I live in Vermont. Summer here lasts four days. Woman can not live by nuts and berries and root vegetables alone. Oh wait, nuts don't grow in Vermont. Make that zucchini and berries and root vegetables.

Tomorrow I plan to make a localvore dinner to compensate (as if I have something to compensate for). If all goes well, I'll post about my tomato goat cheese tart here Thursday. If not, I'll feast on mangoes and avocados and bunnies imported from Australia, and tell you about that, instead.
