I fail at pictures for this entry. The batteries were dead on the camera, so I took pictures with my phone, which are moderate sucky but okay if I edit them in Gimp.
However, every time I try to email myself the pictures, my phone reboots itself.
So, imagine, if you will, two local meals last Sunday. The first was breakfast. Sunday breakfast, around here, is very nearly 100 percent local very nearly every week (today, we cheated with some non-local, but very tasty, turkey bacon.) However, last Sunday was scrambled eggs from the Ward’s up in McCleansville, potatoes from Faucette Farms (roasted with some non-local oil and spices), and sausage from Rocking F Farm. Sunday breakfast is one of our favorite meals of the week.
Sunday’s dinner ended up being local, too. We had some apple bratwurst that jumped in front of us at the market Saturday morning (seriously, we were walking out, passed by the booth, saw “apple bratwurst” at the top of the sign, and had to have some) from a vendor that we don’t shop regularly from and whose name, alas, I didn’t catch; biscuits made from NC grown and milled flour and milk and butter from Homeland Creamery; and spring mix from Tony-our-lettuce-guy at the Farmer’s market (with a little non-local salad dressing; I really need to learn to make our own.)
And that was this week’s local meals. There were plenty of meals with local elements – most of our meals have something, if not most things, local – but those were the two overwhelmingly local meals.
