I should be ashamed of myself

The word "Locavore" is hot right now - eating food that comes from neighboring farms, your own property, somewhere nearby, anyway.  I'm sure you've already figured out James and I are all about that.  We like the idea of knowing where our food comes from. 

Tonight I made a quiche.  Oh, it was so good - made from our own eggs, goat milk, spinach, broccoli, kale, chives, morels from the nearby Jefferson National Forest, sausage from my friend's hog just 17 miles away.  All kinds of local food.

All of this was served in a delicious crust.

Maybe I should be ashamed of putting all of this in a Pillisbury crust but, um, I can't apologize.  I love these crusts.  I know homemade ones are good too but I make so many more pies very quickly thanks to Pillsbury.  I feel like 8 out of 9 ingredients that came from nearby is nothing to be ashamed of.


  1. Nothing to be ashamed of at all. I think it's time we stopped trying to fit some preconceived picture of how we Should be doing things and just do what we can. You're not doing too badly either.

  2. Maybe they will put in a Pillsbury bakery in Glasgow or BV.
