Eating Locally

Spring is a great time here in the Loire Valley. Local food is becoming available, like these fresh asparagus, strawberries, and goat cheese.

The only non-local product in this picture is the wine from Alsace. We do have great sauvignon blanc in this part of the Touraine, which would have made this a perfect, and perfectly local, lunch.

Yesterday and overnight we had our first thunderstorms of the season. They were not violent but quite enjoyable. Some lightning, long rumbling thunder, and rain off and on. Shades of summer to come? We shall see.
