I Won, I Won!

Omigosh! Look what I won: a copy of Eating Close to Home by Elin England! THANK YOU, Our Home Works! Yay!

Here's what I'll be reading and what I promise to share with you as I make my way through this book:
In this book, local author Elin England put together a compendium of simple, well-tested recipes using local, seasonal ingredients. The book is arranged by seasons and even has a handy chart depicting the availability of Pacific Northwest fruits and vegetables. As a bonus, Elin is graciously sharing 10% of the proceeds with Willamette Farm & Food Coalition.
Yay and yum. I can't wait. This is a perfect companion read to what hubby's reading these days because he won the lottery for a community garden plot! I'll share pics of our little 16' x 22' patch of organic community garden goodness soon.

(As an aside, Our Home Works is on my current list of heroes because they just got chickens!!! Check 'em out. I hope to follow in their footsteps someday.)
