Just feeling really, really overwhelmed these days. What with R having difficulty adjusting to her new class, W screaming bloody murder at every opportunity and the mail piling up it is all I can do not to run screaming from the house, let alone procure and eat an entire meal of locally produced food! I still do my part though - just this afternoon I called in to Martha Stewart Living Radio and asked the invited guest (a NYC chef) why in God's name he bought chickens from CANADA? He diplomatically explained that the producer is within a 250 mile radius (his cut-off point) and that he tried to buy locally for years but the product wasn't uniform enough. And then I won a free cookbook! Written by himself! Hurrah - that did lots to boost my spirits. Will be sure to cook from it and report back once received. Tomorrow Paul and I are off to a wedding in the North Woods of Wisconsin to the Red Crown Lodge. R and W are staying the weekend with the in-laws and I am having some serious anxiety over leaving them. I wish I could be more laid back!
