I had a wonderful Christmas and I hope that whatever holiday you celebrate, it was wonderful. Since I don’t host Christmas or Christmas Eve, the week was as non-local as it gets. We’re Italian and there are things we must have and sadly, they don’t grow in Connecticut in the winter! Nonetheless, all of the food I ate (and there was a lot of it) was wonderful.
This week’s local meal was simple and healthy:
- Veal chop (from Sankow’s Beaver Brook)
- Pan fried carola potatoes (from Riverbank Farm)
- Steamed broccoli (from the freezer from Waldingfield Farm) with butter (from Trinity Farm)
- Canola oil, salt, and pepper from out there.
Y’know, it never gets the attention it deserves in these challenges, but breakfast was oatmeal (from Wild Hive Farm) drizzed with honey (from the apiary of Jerry Soltisiak in Easton, CT) with raw milk from Foxfire Farm.
