The sweet corn came from a farm stand just down the road and was grown within a couple miles of my place. The avocados, the one non-local item, likely came from California. I cooked the corn in water, while the avocado was grilled (again with a light brushing of olive oil).

The connection to Ultrarunning is that sometimes I crave a vegetarian meal (while both the bride and I are happy carnivores) after a long effort. Intuitively that seems backwards--I'd think that meaty protein would be the preferred menu choice. But sometimes a big effort suppresses my appetite for some hours, and a lighter, veggie meal is more in keeping with my druthers at that time.
