Did I tell you what I decided on for my third exception? Coconut. I love the oil and ought to buy myself a nut. For review, #1 is brown rice and #2 is pinto beans.
Recently found myself wondering when my cactus plants will start leafing. Love those nopales! When it does leaf, I plan to teach a class on prepping and cooking them.
A young patient of mine is a professional fisherman. He and I are going to work out a trade. Should be delicious!
I am going to use my first total-meal exception tomorrow night at the Obama Inaugural Ball in Ojai; two major historical firsts in one day.
My brother, Kap, owes me a birthday lunch from last October. That will be my second meal exception for January.
We are already almost 3 weeks into this 52-week project. This year is sure to fly like the wind.
I am definitely experiencing some challenge doing this project. But, it is good. I like the palpable nature of the everyday, every meal, every snack awareness that is required.
I realize that I want to make a list of the local foods that are available to me in January.
I'm already looking forward to the fruit from my loquat tree.
Stay tuned, or just be turned.
