The Anemochory concept is very intriguing and it is something I often think (and blog) about... the connection between ourselves and our food. The food at the Anemochory event was as locally sourced as possible (which is so admirable to me). All of our courses came with a card stating the origin of the ingredients within the meal which helped give perspective to how the food made it to our plates. The interesting part of the dinner came when our host told us about one of the main courses... the rack of lamb: one piece was from a locally sourced farm, the other was from New Zealand. As I took a bite of the lamb from New Zealand I thought about the energy it took for that meat to make it to my plate. And I believe I savored it a bit more with that knowledge. Be connected to what you eat. Know where your food comes from. Understand your impact as a consumer in creating more locally sourced and organic food. I think we'll all be a little better for it.
Today was a lazy Saturday. We woke up late (8AM is late for us), ate breakfast while watching 'Real Time with Bill Maher' (I love him so much), then we ventured down to a local bakery for some bread and a treat (duh). Later in the afternoon we took the T to R.E.I. to buy some bike stuff then we decided to walk to Newbury Street thru the Back Bay Fens park. It was gorgeous. We held hands. We talked. And then we got hungry. So we headed to the Atlantic Fish Co. for a beer and calamari.

What was your most memorable job at a teen? It still floors me that I was lucky enough to work at a winery as a freaking teenager. Too bad I was sort of a brat and didn't really appreciate it!! But I sure do now!
