For the week ending Sunday, December 21, 2008, I have a few Dark Days Eat Local Challenge meals.
Beginning with last Sunday (dinner got to the table too late to post):
- Roasted chicken (from Ox Hollow Farm) with sage, rosemary, and thyme (from our own garden), white wine from McLaughlin Vineyards, olive oil, chicken stock, salt, and pepper from out there.
- Roasted root vegetables: parsnips, carrots, and celeriac (from Riverbank Farm) and purple potatoes (from Waldingfield Farm).
Wednesday was ratatouille with smoked sausages. The ratatouille was made and frozen in the late summer/early fall when eggplant and zucchini were plentiful. The freezer bag says “Entirely Local Except Olive Oil.” Vegetables are predominantly from Waldingfield Farm. The sausages were leftover from last week. I used this ratatouille recipe at Cooking for Engineers — without the mushrooms. (I love the recipes on this site.)
Sorry about the condition of the picture…
Very happy food week around these parts. (Happy if you like snow too.)
