Summer Harvest Feasts

Posted on

Glenwood Market was a good place to be this morning. Lots of activity. Breezy Willow the place to get organic veggies.

Like fresh sweet corn.

Zahradka had gorgeous tomatoes.

Triadelphia Lake View Farm had baskets of fingerlings, my favorite potatoes.

Guess what is going to be in dinner tonight?

Next weekend there will be a family fun fest at the Glenwood market. Check it out.

Eating Locally: Ratatouille

Posted on

A go to veggie side when we drown in zucchini and eggplant. We don’t have eggplant yet but lots of zucchini and a few yellow squash Thursday in the CSA box.

I wandered into Wegmans after having the pickup serviced over at British American, to get some organic tomatoes and two small eggplant, to use with the squash, a yellow pepper from the farm stand, onions from the CSA and my basil pesto. All mixed up in a pan, roasted, and served with local beef sausage, the last of the deliveries from Zahradka in April.

The beef sausage is a good fit with the ratatouille. We also opened one of the Glen Manor 2010 Cabernet Francs that was left up in the dining room wine rack. A good match because the wine wasn’t overwhelmed, nor did it upstage the ratatouille. A simple rustic dinner.

This week’s contribution to our Southern Sole Food Challenge, using sustainable, organic, local and ethically grown or raised veggies and meats. The ten members of the challenge use Google Reader to keep track of what we are making using our local bounties, all of us living south of the Mason Dixon Line.
