So, my pysanky eggs would NOT win any contests but I had a really good time making them. I decided to just use one color and really simple designs. In retrospect I'd have left them in the dye a much shorter time to see if I could get more of a dusky grey color. I considered putting them back in the black dye for just a minute after cleaning the wax lines off so that the white would be grey but it was time to wrap it up. Next time I'll also put more effort into planning the designs. In any event, the weather was so wonderful. And after that I went for a walk.
In other news, I recently heard a radio interview with Jonathan Safran Foer who wrote the book Eating Animals. I'm putting this book on my reading list.
I've been a vegetarian off and on in my life and have been pretty involved in the local clean food movement in my community. I started and ran the first farmers' market in my town 7 years ago and where my food comes from is something I've been concerned about since my early 20s.
I'm excited to plan a great vegetable garden this year and I'm renewing my focus on eating a limited amount of meat and dairy and then only eating those I find locally.
What's your food philosophy?
