Local Stuff We're Eating This Week

Here is a list of some local items on the menu in various guises this week:

Russet Potatoes (duh, of course!)
Spanish Onions
White Wheat Breads (flour ground at home, breads baked at home)
Sunshine Kabocha Squash
Plum Vinegar (made from home grown plums)
Farm Fresh Eggs
Bacon (cured at home from local pork)
Mint Tea (home garden)
Dried Plums (home garden)
Mozzarella cheese (local dairy milk, cheesed at home)
Sprouts (sprouted at home)
Jams (home grown, home made)

This is a bit thin, but I may add to it later depending on what I dig out of storage or find for sale locally this week!

Also, we're informally joining the Dark Days Eat Local Challenge. This is a challenge to eat at least one local meal a week, in the dead of winter, when there is little local food for sale in most areas. I'll try to remember to post an update and recipes each week. I'll also try not to make our "one meal" always breakfast!

Wow, I'm impressed at all the home-processing you do!
