This year I decided to join "One Local Summer", where the object is to make one meal a week with all local ingredients. We do this as much as possible anyway so I decided to take up the challenge. Of course we have been on vacation for the past two weeks, part of the time out of the country, so what I ate was dictated by where we were, and I did no cooking at all. So this will be my first submission this year, for One Local Summer.
We arrived home at around 4:00 yesterday from vacation. Got to work weeding in the garden and decided, as I looked around at everything that was growing, to grab supper from the garden. We had a salad of mixed salad greens, including my favorite this year...Drunken Woman Lettuce, as well as onions, tomatoes out of the garden and eggs from our chickens. With that we steamed up some beets. Here is what it looked like all finished, the only thing not from our own home was the salad dressing.
