I'm still on a little holiday to get refreshed for the New Year ahead but I had to wish anyone who stumbles upon the Bonbon Project a Happy One.
I hope 2008 has wonderful things in store for all of you.
I love a break where I can get some reading done and right now, I'm finally finishing The Omnivore's Dilemma which I started in October- and am finally finding enough time to concentrate. Excited for his new In Defense of Food to come out this month. If your new year's resolution is to get healthy, gain knowledge and/or work on reducing your footprint, read him.
I came across the Eat Local Challenge and the 100-Mile Diet blogs/sites while searching the links on Michael Pollan's site. We try to do it in our own way but I know we can do so much better. I'm declaring January Buy and Eat Local Month for us.
What an incredibly cool idea to try it here in the U.S., where it's more importamnt than ever to remind our people where their clothes (and food!) come from. Some pics from the 100-Mile Suit Project
