This tastes like Grandma's house.
As many of you know, we welcomed an addition to our family late January. Madeline Elizabeth has made our family of three into a family of four, and we are excited to get to know her better as she grows (and teach her about local food!).
Helping us ease into our new life, many friends generously provided us with tasty meals. One night Chris said, "It's like going to restaurants, without having to leave our house." Indeed, but it's also like going to Grandma's house. Why? One night we received a delivery from a new friend who said, "It's home grown corn." "Neat," I thought, but didn't realize how special it was until I tasted a spoonful of that corn. J*U*S*T L*I*K*E Grandma's! The flavor was wonderful and completely unlike any corn from the grocery store. Chris tasted it, and immediately recalled the first time he had home grown corn as a college student in Oregon. This is local eating. Tastes that are so memorable and special that you know when you've had them before, and you remember them.
