Welcome to Kansas City locavore

Last summer, the goal for our family was to eat only locally produced dairy, produce, meat and bread for the entire summer!  We accomplished it by  by going to farmer's markets, participating in Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), and homegrown fun!  We had some great field trips  to a local lavender field, Miami County Farm Tour, Lawrence Farm Tour, Original Juan's hot sauce, Shatto dairy farm and The Roasterie!!!  Check out the blog if you want to know about "All Things Kansas City".  We have toured a lot of places and have learned a lot.  


Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler- King Cake

Have you ever had a King Cake? So yummy and fun! I found one today at Whole Foods with no preservatives or additives.


I have hidden the tiny baby and bean. Wonder who will find them?

Here is my wish-hopefully nobody will choke or fight over the tiny baby.

We'll keep you posted on who finds them. A giant cake with no preservatives (expires 2/14) means, we're gonna be eating a lot of cake in the next 48 hours. Yikes!


Happy Valentine's Day- celebrate with Christopher Elbow Chocolates!

It is so hard to believe that Valentine's Day is here again! Where does the time go? Seriously! I have purchased some fancy schmancy locally made chocolates made by Christopher Elbow for the fellas' teachers. Shhhhh! Let's just keep this our little secret until Valentine's Day. 


Each box contains 4 chocolates.

The chocolates are their 4 most popular flavors, CHAMPAGNE, VANILLA BEAN, LAVENDER, and VIETNAMESE CINNAMON.

I hope that this earns us some brownie points! I picked them up at The Roasterie or you can find them at Glace.

Day 10 of sharing fantastic talented people-The Shabbiest Chick

The Shabbiest Chick is a furniture goddess. She actually hand makes some of her furniture (hello....like huge harvest tables).  She distresses, paints and makes the pieces look better than any Pottery Barn or Ballard Design piece. Check out her blog for some great tips.
