Big news: WE'RE MOVING. My husband accepted a great job offer and we're moving from San Francisco, California to a town called Port St. Lucie, Florida in exactly one month. What I'm most concerned about: what the H we're going to eat when we get there...
I'm actually from Florida (the fabulous Florida Keys, to be exact), so the move is not going to be a complete culture shock. However, in the last four years of living in San Francisco, I admit that I have grown
smug accustom to fantastic organic produce, ethnic foods from every corner of the planet, gluten free everything and the world's best wines. It's a cold hard reality that in our new town, we will not have access to many of the delicacies we've taken for granted out here. I'm pretty sure there are zero Burmese restaurants in the entire State of Florida and only about four Indian restaurants, none of which look like they are anywhere close to where we'll be living.
BUT, it's not the end of the world. With some googling, I found an organic produce co-op that delivers boxes of local organic goodies to my house for $45/week. I guess I didn't realize how many organic crops Florida actually raises. There's more to Florida agriculture than citrus. I'm really excited to learn that Florida grows all sorts of stuff from leafy greens to tomatoes to berries.
