local love from the kitchen

So how is this whole plan to eat from 'closer to home' sources going?
Pretty well.  Beach and I had a long talk about some of the changes in our own pantry.  She was great.  I offered her the same thing we are giving ourselves a few items we feel we need but can't obtain from one of our designated shopping stops. She declined saying she wanted to try it first.  If she couldn't live without an item she would let me know later.  Here are a few dinners from the week, all of the ingredients are from the Food Co-op (or our greenhouse).
Mashed potatoes topped with mushrooms, leek, red peppers, & garlic
Green chili & chicken tamales with spout, cucumber, spinach, & grape tomatoes
BLT on sourdough with cucumbers
(this one was mine so it was open face to cut down on the bread comma later)
Oh, this one is great.  This was a lunch. 
Beach at the park dissecting a corn dog from Millie's,
a family owned & run burger joint.

So loving this!!!!


  1. I am currently reading Animal, Vegetable, Miracle after reading about it on your blog. I am loving it! Thanks for the recommendation. We will be moving the next 2 weeks, so I am trying to figure out what is available in our new community. I'm not finding much, but I hope that once I get there, more options will become available.
    The mashed potatoes look great!

    1. I am so glad to hear :)

      Good luck on the move, it is getting mighty close.
