Creating dinner out of local foods is getting easier and easier as the summer goes on. It's not that I'm getting better at it, it's just that there's so much more variety available in the farmers' market than there was a month ago. Monday night as I was preparing dinner I was thinking about what I should do for a local meal this week. Some things are not too tough. For dinner I was already making tacos with:
grass-fed ground beef (local)
onions (farmer's market)
spices (see OLS #8 post comments for my homemade taco seasoning mix)
tomatoes (farmers' market, finally!)
tortillas (non-local) I've tried to make my own, but my family won't eat them. If you're wondering why, click on the link and see accompanying picture. :)
So there's my local meal. Not fancy, sorry no pictures -- I decided to just make it easy.
