One Local Summer: Week Ten

Hard to believe this is the last week of One Local Summer. Not only has local eating sustained us this summer, posting about our meals has also sustained this blog. With a new baby in the house, I must admit my garden is so overgrown and neglected, it's far from blog-worthy. Without our local meals, this blog would have gone the way of our garden.

More than material for blogging, we've enjoyed getting to know our local foodshed. Though the challenge may end here, we've got the know-how we need to keep eating locally, at least on some level. And the incentive, too, because meals made from mostly local ingredients are by far the tastiest.

So, for our final meal I made a simple frittata. All summer long I was hoping to get my hands on some local eggs. My sister, who lives in a more farm-friendly part of the state, came through for us. And I must say, having never tasted a farm-fresh egg before... wow.

With squash from our CSA, basil grown in our own back yard and locally made mozzarella we were able to cobble together a simple, yet delicious meal.

Get a taste of what others are cooking up locally. . .
