A must read


It's summer time. A time for cookouts, beach trips & long days. If you're looking for a new book to read by the pool or on the beach, I know just the one. Barbara Kingsolver's Animal, Vegetable, Miracle. It's very inspiring. A story about a family living off their land and eating local for an entire year. You learn their struggles and triumphs. It makes you stop and think before picking up those bananas at the grocery store. There are also delicious seasonal recipes sprinkled throughout the book, written by the author's daughter. 

A small disclaimer: Thoughts of trading your desk job & city life for farming & the countryside might occur.
