More on eating

Eating. A plan.

The other day, Rhona and I talked about food. At a recent party, we saw a tray of about 10 steaks. The total cost of these steaks was, apparently, $32 at BJ's. We were talking about giving up meat.

I didn't have one of those steaks. And I rarely eat 29 cent per pound Chicken. I don't want my meat to cost so little. It's actually kinda frightening. So we buy food with long descriptions, each one there because it justifies the cost: free-range, no-hormones, didn't eat it's own poo...

Thus, we don't eat a lot of meat, because we're not rich. And meat that seems worthy of being eaten costs a lot. (We've paid $15 for one steak).

And in the veggie department, we buy 'organic' which is code for 'didn't get sprayed with poison that is tested on rats in order to determine acceptable levels thereof'.

So, we talk about food. Because we have to feed it to Autumn. And we're often at a loss for what to feed her. But we're working on it.

We'll keep you posted. in the meantime, we're going to try to be better at being 'locavores'. Meaning, we try to eat local.
