I'm back from vacation and am jumping back into a super busy week of work and other things. So it's no surprise that the food world is busy, too.
Such as: this week (starting last Saturday) is Maryland's "Buy Local Challenge" week. It basically is what it sounds like - a week designed to encourage people to buy more local goods.
It's also time to start thinking about Baltimore's summer Restaurant Week, which runs from August 13 to the 22nd. I'm sure several restaurants will run restaurant week specials all month, or at least for an additional week or so, like they usually do. It's a great reason to go out...as if anyone needs a good reason not to cook in the middle of August.
