Tonight we had our "eat local" meal of the week. In all honesty, we eat something local a few times a week, though usually not an entire meal. Tonight we had quite the feast, though unfortunately I wasn't thinking about a photo before I sat down and ate. So you'll just have to close your eyes and imagine:
Grilled zucchini (farmers market) and eggplant (not local, but organic from the Boise Coop--I had a serious hankering for eggplant and its not ready here yet. Sorry)
Oven roasted red and Yukon gold potatoes (farmers market)
Stir fried zuchinni, onions (farmers' market again) and mushrooms (local grower).
I'm on a zucchini kick right now, if you hadn't noticed. One of my favorite vegetables, hands down. I think the challenge is going to start getting a whole lot easier, as more and more fruits and veggies become available. This whole thing has definitely got me thinking a lot more about where my food comes from, which is the whole point, right?
On a non-food note, head over to The Amazing Lace and vote. My latest entry (Santa's beard) made the finals!!
