Tis the season for eating locally! Last night I had Bengineer over for dinner. Apart from the broiled fish I served, which was decidedly not local, here was our menu:
sliced tomatoes with goat cheese and basil
corn on the cob
roasted green beans with thyme
homemade zucchini bread
Very organic, very local. The tomatoes and goat cheese came from our local farmers' market (my own tomatoes aren't ripe yet). The basil came from my garden. And the corn, beans, and zucchini came from the thriving garden of G&J, who like nothing better than to stuff my car with fresh produce when I go down to their beautiful place for a visit.
