Eating and growing locally: week two

Week 2: growing

  • tiny sprouts in our lettuce bin!
  • pepper transplant from Seed Savers arrived – need to get that in a bigger pot.
  • lots of rain the last couple of days has made the tomatoes grow tall

Week 2: eating

  • salad of roasted potatoes and spring onions from the DR market with non-local eggs and bacon (note: buy eggs next weekend), grilled awesome brats from DR butcher (local?), salad greens from FB market
  • rainbow chard (DR) frittata with non-local eggs (recipe from On Rue Tatin)
  • parboiled asparagus (DR) with herbs from our garden and some grated cheese
  • grilled chicken and spring onions (DR) with fresh pasta from Cheesetique
  • fantastic salad and strawberries from the FB market

This week I made an effort to do as much of our shopping as I could using mass transit.  Non-local indulgences included a pizza Tuesday night after a long and frustrating day, and stocking up on our favorite breakfast cereal when it was hella on sale ($1.88 for Basic 4!).  We picked up some fantastic stuff from the Courthouse market today, though, so I’m excited for our mostly-local brunch tomorrow, and good eats this week before I fly to Chicago for a meeting.
