We are two queer attorneys, 29 and 31, living in downtown Los Angeles. We are happy and proud that we've already accomplished the biggest goal in our lives -- to find each other and fall in love. But now that we're married and our careers are on the right track, we're getting ready to spend the rest of our lives together. That means getting healthy and getting organized. We started this blog so that you, our friends, family and anyone else who stumbles upon us, can help keep us accountable to our new goal: eating our veggies, every single day.
We get a weekly vegetable delivery from Tierra Miguel farm in Southern California, and the contents of the box are different each week. Local, seasonal eating comes to us in downtown LA. But staying home and cooking vegetables means resisting the delectable delights of downtown -- to name a few of our favorites, ricotta fritters, gnocchi with roasted grapes and goat cheese, steak with marrow butter, butterscotch pudding, and lasagna with fresh pasta sheets. Our neighborhood is overflowing with artisanal cocktails made with mezcal, tequila, whiskey, and rum. And we love checking out the newest and most unique restaurants and bars as soon as they open up.
This blog will chronicle how we use every single vegetable in our CSA box every week. And when we slip up or give ourselves a treat, we'll tell you about the fabulous restaurants of LA.
