At the time we married, introduction to eating locally wasn't on our radar - a few months into newlywed bliss we watched Food, Inc. and our food practices were challenged - nutritionally, economically, ethically, and sustainably. We made changes immediately, and learn more everyday.
Last week I read a blog by a couple getting married and celebrating by producing all of the food for their reception themselves - a local food wedding. I love the idea, and am encouraged to see another young couple committed and passionate about the local food system. They plan to blog their progress - I'll be smiling as I read the updates.
Farm City, The Education of an Urban Farmer" I came across a Portuguese quote that said something like "The happiest times in life are the year after marriage and the week after killing a pig." I read it to Chris and he said, "so are we killing a pig Aug. 1st?" After all, he is 1/4 Portuguese - what a great idea!
My poor husband, shouldn't have opened his mouth, that's exactly what we're doing, Hawaiian style - he's Portuguese AND Hawaiian! Stay tuned - I'll post pictures of our 1st anniversary hog roast in the country once it happens!
