Is it the end of the week already? Phew! This has been a long week here in Kentucky. The weather hasn't been nearly as bad here as in other southern states, but since last Friday, my town has had three tornado sirens (two of which were in the middle of the night) and several tornado and flood watches. We've been very, very lucky, but it has created an exhausting week for everyone around here.
Here are some of the posts I've liked this week. It's been difficult to keep up because every time I sit down to rest and read, I end up falling asleep! I think, though, given what I bookmarked this week, I'm in need of some goat cheese. :-)
- Annie's Eats has a Parmesan Crusted Goat Cheese with Basil Oil that I just want to sink my teeth into! I have a party planned next weekend for my son's birthday and baptism, and this just might make the cut.
- I am also planning on making A Food Centric Life's Goat Cheese Salad--Hawaiian Style as soon as tomatoes and cucumbers come into season. The salad, which includes typical salad fare, also includes beets and pineapple. This sounds like a perfect summer salad.
- And on a food-related note, Food & Water Watch has a great graphic on factory farms in the U.S. As you may know, my family steers away from non-local meat from large factories. In addition to just tasting better and supporting local farmers, there is just too much scary stuff going on in large-scale meat factories for me to feel safe in feeding it to my family. I was happy to see that Kentucky, although a large agricultural state, is relatively free from extremely high density farms. This means that local meats are coming from more small-scale farms. Where does your state fall?
