Food Network had a special Iron Chef America episode on tonight where all of the vegetables came from the White House vegetable garden set up by the Obamas when they first moved in to the White House. Protein (meat, cheese, etc.) was sourced within a hundred miles of “Kitchen Stadium”. This really was a great show and I loved the emphasis on fresh garden vegetables and local food.
The seed catalogs have started streaming in and given the near subzero temperatures we’ve had the last several days I’m really starting to look forward to the return of the warm weather and the chance to get my vegetable garden going.
