Food I bought today to bring back to Hinckley (either because it’s cheaper here or impossible to find there): two bunches of kale, three packages of organic tofu, two quarts of organic yogurt, two boxes of Kashi GoLean (SO much more expensive up north), almond milk, 8oz cartons of organic milk (I use cow’s milk only in my tea; I buy tiny containers so that it won’t go bad before I can use it all), and pitas.
This is an old photo (from March), but I didn’t have anything new from today. I’m going to call my neighbors about eggs when I get back to Hinckley, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they don’t have a surplus, since the days are getting shorter. I’ve been so spoiled by having an egg ‘supplier’ just around the corner. And I can’t remember if I’ve mentioned it, but there’s an orchard about five miles from the house that has been keeping the local supermarket stocked with Honeycrisps all fall. Also, there’s an apiary (a bee ‘farm’) at the end of the road, so we have honey in the pantry that’s super local. Those things sort of make up for having to stockpile that other stuff during my trips to the cities!
