I am Carol and to my right, your left, is Pat.  We are at French Quarter Fest, standing near the river in New Orleans, where we were on vacation a few years ago.  We both grew up in North Louisiana, but have family in New Orleans.  I try to go every year to go to Jazz Fest.  Pat is not a crowd person, so does not go.  But we have definite Louisiana roots.

This blog is not about that.  It is about our journey to eat locally, organically, and in a more traditional way.  Since we are from the South, and live in the South, though not in Louisiana anymore, the traditions of the south inform our food choices.  We like greens of all kinds, sweet potatoes, turnips, pork, field peas and beans of all kinds; cornbread, biscuits, hotcakes and red beans and rice.    But what may be surprising, is that you can have all those things and still be healthy.  This blog is about how to do that, and about including traditional, real, chemical-free, locally grown food in that menu, and about expanding your repertoire to include traditional foods from other cultures in a way that is meaningful in your life.  This means eating real foods that are not highly processed.  So come along and see how it goes.

  1. Hey there! Just wanted to say hello and get connected with my fellow Georgian Dark Days participants. I live just outside Athens. I look forward to following you.

      Hi Brenna,
      I am glad there are a couple other people from Georgia in the challenge. I get up to the Athens Farmers Market a couple of times during the season. I live about an hour from there in Covington. Hope you have some good eating this winter.

    this was very enjoyable to see, as well as seeing pictures of you and Pat again. I saw the note that you left on Heather’s blog tonight, and she’ll see it sometime this weekend for sure.

    Happy Eating! You and H are still kindred spirits.
