One Local Summer – Week 3

One Local Summer - Week 3

Last week our local meal was lamb kebabs and a cucumber-feta salad. The lamb kebabs were seasoned with curry — a favorite of Katie’s — and grilled. The cucumber salad was made with local cucumbers and feta and seasoned with herbs from our garden. As usual the only non-local ingredients were the oil, vinegar, and spices. I need to find a local source for the vinegar at least but I am excited because I found a local source for grain this week. Tomorrow I’ll tell you about the other local meal we had this week. Oh my.
– dill, mint (0 miles)
– lamb (17 miles)
– feta (19 miles)
– onion (69 miles)
– cucumber ()

    Looks delicious. I may try my hand at a cucumber-feta salad.

    that looks delicious!! now you’re going to have to tell me where you’re getting your grain! Last fall one of the stands at our farmer’s market had wheat berries for sale, but I didn’t buy any and I regretted it for a whole year! I’m hoping he’ll show back up again this fall.

    I like how you incorporated the miles for each piece of your meal!

    Aren’t those 0-mile foods the best?
