Food Day

It's Food Day!

Healthy, affordable food is the focus. Last year the challenge was to make meals for less than $5 per person. A dozen eggs, at $5 per dozen, along with fresh vegetables and lovely crusty bread...certainly can be made for under $20 for a family of four.

A $14 chicken can be roasted in the oven with a bunch of vegetables, dinner one night, the chicken carcass simmered in water for an hour or so, then strained for stock, the meat added back in, the vegetables added to it and dinner ends up at $3 per person over 2 meals. If a lunch time sandwich or chicken salad is also in there, the cost per meal really drops.

We will be eating from the farm today. Food put up: frozen or canned or even still in the earth. Of course, we have to amortize the cost of the farm into our meals...

Eat well! Happy Food Day!
