Another Frittata with rabbit sausage, onions and peppers from the garden.

We were at the East Bay Urban Ag Alliance's meeting so Jeanette made us some spaghetti.

Tom had scrambled eggs with veggies. I just had some brown rice because I wasn't very hungry.

Friday - The Last Day
We roasted a duck on the barbecue with quince and rose hips along with zucchini from the garden and brown rice.

I can't believe the year is done. It seemed to go by so fast. I'm a little sad that it's over but I'm really excited to get back to the farmers' market. We got asked a lot what we were going to first go out and buy at the grocery store when were were done with our year. Nothing. We're not going to buy anything at the grocery store. The reasons for why we were doing this are still there, so we're going to continue being grocery store free. If you've noticed, the name of the blog has changed to "Another Year Without Groceries." Let's see how long this goes on. For now though I'm going to no longer be doing a run down of our menu. However, I am going to focus more on the food issues our nation faces. I'm going to still do reflections as well. And if you haven't joined our Facebook page, please do so. The link is on the left.

I kind of feel like I'm saying goodbye, but I'm not. We're not going anywhere and we'll still be here to discuss living without a grocery store.


  1. Congratulations on finishing the year and good luck with the next!

  2. I'll still be here following and soaking in the inspiration. Thanks you for an interesting year!

  3. I'd love to interview you for my blog -- If you'd like to do it, just contact me through the contact page on the site. Thanks!

  4. I just got back to reading your blog, but congratulations on making it to one year and on continuing! I've been buying most, if not all, of our produce from our local orchards/farms and hopefully soon we will be able to weed out other things at the grocery.
