is Extra! Extra!'s
I'm celebrating Extra! Extra!'s first anniversary by offering this great cotton apron designed by Evil Geniuses to a reader who, during the month of February, posts an answer to this question:
Why do I cook local?
It could be that you grow your own food, or your friend is a farmer, or maybe you live close to a year-round farm market or belong to a CSA. It could be your choice to cook local is about supporting the local economy or organic growing or sustainability. I'd love to hear your story!

Along with your answer, post your name and email address so I can contact you in March if you win! Entries can be as short or as long as you like.

ABOUT THE APRON
Apron is designed by Evil Geniuses; it sports a gorgeous logo that proudly displays the title, LOCAVORE. It's made of high-quality heavy 100% cotton twill in a natural khaki shade; the apron is rugged and can stand up to regular machine washing. One size fits most; two generous pockets hold utensils and more.
As the designer points out, "Buying your food locally makes you a locavore. Perfect for a supporter of your local small farmer. Sustainable, organic, local farms!" This fun apron is a great way to show off your "eat local" pride! A $22 value.
