One Local Summer – Week 13


Whoops! Didn’t mean to miss two weeks of dinners there. We did have local meals both weeks but we ran off to the ocean for some of that time and couldn’t find the energy to document our meals while the sand and surf were calling. This week I made an enormous batch of ratatouille. We got one meal from it and I froze enough for two more meals plus a few lunches — school starts next week — that we’ll enjoy on a cold day this winter. We had crispy lamb meatballs and non-local rice on the side and it made quite a good meal.

– thyme, basil (0 miles)
– lamb (17 miles)
– tomatoes, peppers (30 miles)
– eggplant, zuchinni (92 miles)
– oil, rice (non-local)

    How have I been missing this? Beautiful photos, to-die-for foods, and inspirational examinations of the food we’re eating. I’ve got a post scheduled to go up Monday morning on the beauty of local bounty…come check it out;)
