Winter stock-up (Εφοδιασμός για το χειμώνα)

Just the other day I was featured on the Daily Random Food blogs in The Foodie Blogroll. I'm wondering whether the name of my blog is misleading some people to think that I only use organic ingredients in my cooking, and the answer is, no, of course not, as I believe that is impossible.

Organically Cooked isn't all about eating organically; sometimes it's more convenient to eat local than organic food. And it isn't all about food, either; it's a way of life that tries to keep one attuned to nature rather than consumerism. The recent economic crisis has made me wonder how much I can economise even more than what I was doing before it hit the world.
