I spent some time today traveling around campus buying locally-produced goodies... One of the great advantages of being on the St. Paul campus of the University of Minnesota! Every Wednesday from 3 to 5 PM, the Dairy Salesroom and Meat Lab sell products made by the food science students, from meat and milk produced by animals raised by the animal science students. Today I picked up some Italian sausage, bacon, bratwurst, a bone for Winnie, and fresh cream cheese (completely unlike any store-bought cream cheese I've ever had). I also stopped by the annual plant sale held by the graduate botany students (aka Phytograds), where I picked up some fresh basil and mint, and a lovely little daffodil. Happy spring!
