Wow. It’s been a while, huh? Mrs. Cook Local is training about ten to twelve hours every week in preparation for an Olympic Triathlon (her second Olympic) in a few weeks (as well as working on a novel in her tiny amount of spare time) and Mr. Cook Local is working a job that leaves him pretty wiped out, so we’re not doing a lot of blogable cooking these days. Our meals consist of some sort of protein (either from the farmers market or from Whole Foods) and some kale, asparagus, or peas. We’re really lucky if we can manage to try a new recipe even once a week and the idea of photographing and typing up said recipes is just not filling us with joy these days. We miss blogging though, and do hope to be back at it soon.
A few things we feel we should mention though, and an announcement of a few upcoming posts and events pulled us out of our own heads for a bit, so here we go.
The next post you’ll see here is going to be sponsored. Well, not exactly sponsored, but sort of. We were invited to Six Seven’s Summer Bloggers Preview Dinner a couple of weeks ago and we jumped at the opportunity. We try not to attend very many events that we don’t pay for, because we don’t feel that sponsored posts should be a mainstay of any site and especially not ours. But, we need to eat, and we love Six Seven, and enjoy what they are doing with their menu, so they are one of our few exceptions (Elliot’s Oyster House being the other notable exception). We will (of course) disclose the fact that we didn’t pay for the meal in the post itself as well. But I wanted to let y’all know ahead of time too.
CSA season has started and we’re thrilled to be a subscriber to Tonnemaker’s CSA for the second year. We’re actually a drop site, and we love getting bags of cherries and apricots and apples delivered each week. We’ll try to have more recipes featuring CSA ingredients over the next few months. What’s in YOUR CSA this year?
A dear friend, Lisa K. Nakamura of Allium on Orcas, has published her first short story. Bucky is a dollar bill that travels around the local economy having all sorts of adventures. You can buy a copy of Bucky’s story at http://www.spreadthebucky.com. We’ve already purchased our copy and we hope you’ll do the same.
Enjoy the summer weather we’re having here in Seattle and we’ll be back with you soon!
