I read a lot of books about food. I'm rereading Animal Vegetable Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver to get inspiration for eating local. The farmer's market is open and my CSA shares start tomorrow. I've always got plenty of staples in the pantry, so I'm going to try to not eat take out as much and start making more of my meals from fresh local ingredients. In case you're not familiar with Barbara Kingsolver click the link to see her books. She's an wonderful novelist who loves to share her opinions and has a writing style that I find refreshingly readable. Animal Vegetable Miracle follows her family for a year in their effort to "live off the land" in West Virginia. Just be warned, this is not a vegan book, though she is vegetarian friendly, the family raises chickens and turkeys for eggs and food. They do have a whole vegetarian Thanksgiving. The book is mostly about the vegetables and I really enjoy it.
