Food Day 2011

Food Day 2011Today we celebrated Food Day. According the information on their website, Food Day “seeks to bring together Americans from all walks of life—parents, teachers, and students; health professionals, community organizers, and local officials; chefs, school lunch providers, and eaters of all stripes—to push for healthy, affordable food produced in a sustainable, humane way.”  The goal is to “create thousands of events in homes, schools, churches, farmers markets, city halls, and state capitals.”

Our restaurant was closed today, but Francine and I ate at a locally sourced coffee house for lunch, shopped at a local food co-op and then came home to harvest some lettuce from the raised beds for dinner. We were inspired by this Chopped Salad recipe by Jaime Oliver. He invited us to get creative. We did! We chopped up some green tomatoes from our two bucketfuls as well as a green pepper that another gardening customer gave us and a few Roma tomatoes from another gardener.  (We’re thankful that we know so many gardeners!)

How about you, did you do anything to celebrate Food Day?
