There was no week 3. There were some local ingredients in some meals, but there was no getting it together enough to fix an entirely local meal.
Last night, though, I roasted some chicken drumsticks from Rocking F Farm over some local potatoes and served them up with some local lettuce (we have hot house hydroponic lettuce all year long. ) There is no pictorial evidence, because I am incapable at the present of taking pictures of chicken on potatoes and making it worth looking at. It was might tasty, though, and we have leftover chicken for chicken salad.
I had forgotten, during the winter, how much of our food stops coming from our local sources and starts coming from our co-op. I’m not saying that’s a bad choice, but foods from the co-op often come from further away than I would like. I’d still rather buy those far away foods from our co-op than our local megamarts, but. We’re lucky to have a year around market here, but what’s available (meat, potatoes, other root vegetables, hot house tomatoes and lettuce, dairy), while awesome, is nothing compared to what we get used to in the summer.
