Local Meal Week #5
I'm having trouble focusing on writing this post because the mosquito bites on my legs are driving me nuts. Scratching isn't enough. I want to take a melon baller and scoop them out, arghhhhh!
That's probably not the best mental image to have as I'm about to describe food. For my SSFC local meal this week, I'm posting a Meatless Monday meal from a couple of weeks ago. We had a nice full plate of veggies that came from the farmers' market and our own backyard.
The cooked the new potatoes up with olive oil, salt, pepper, and rosemary from the garden. I used up the last of the asparagus for the season, steamed up with onion and squash from my own garden. We added the red and yellow hothouse tomatoes in at the end. It's nice and colorful, no?
I'm starting to see a lot more fruit at the farmers' markets and am anxious for watermelon. You can read about the Local Meal challenge here, and this link will take you to a summary of the others' meals.
