Just a quickie here, because I'm overdoing it today.
Chilled cream of tomato soup made from my own tomatoes, roasted and food-milled; blended with some Straus milk and a dollop of Cowgirl Creamery creme fraiche; seasoned with a little salt and topped with chives and cherry tomatoes from the garden.
Green, yellow and purple string beans from Wild Blue Farm, quickly simmered and slathered with Straus butter.
I've never eaten better than I'm doing this month.

I agree about eating wonderfully on teh Eat Local challenge. I think I've definately found a new hobby in searching out great local food sources.

Heather: Today I read that Marin Municipal Water District was holding an open house to celebrate its new desalination facility... and I almost went there to ask about salt! (But I doubt they're doing anything to remove impurities from the salt, so I probably wouldn't want it in my mouth.)
So, yeah -- new hobby! cheers
