i'm so happy to be in full-swing spring. isn't it so good? sunshiney days and lawnmowers a whir out in the 'hood. i love it.
you might have noticed the logo over there. that's right. i'm up to fun food blog mischief again.
my long-time blogger pal, beth over at Total Mom Haircut
and i are teaming up. beth is someone i have never met, but i totally consider her a friend. she is the person in the blogosphere i have known the longest. she knew me back in the days of my first blog called Peeping Moms. i'm so very psyched to be playing with her on this project.
we are both finding ourselves more and more dedicated to a lifestyle of eating local foods. she's a fab home gardener who can inspire anyone to grow in their own yards, boxes, barrels or whatever you got. i'm an avid CSA and Farmer's Market goer who loves food and cooking. we're both busy moms of 2 just trying to make a difference in how our families eat. we want our children to know where their food comes from. we want to support our local growers. and so From Dirt To Dinner was born.
every other Friday we'll post about either a meal we've each made with a common ingredient that will be entirely (if we can pull it off) local. on the other Fridays we'll be posting interviews with each other full of ideas on how to cook, grow, shop, find local resources, get kids involved in their food and anything else fun we can think of on the topic.
and you can join us, too--the more the merrier! for the Meal posts, we'll add a Mr. Linky so that you can post your meal, too. the first posting date will be MAY 7th. i'll be hosting so come here to add your link if you decide to play. and the ingredient we'll use for this first meal is ASPARAGUS! yay for spring veg! i'm super excited and so grateful to beth for doing this with me.
