One Local Summer - Week of 8/5/2007
We've got a kitchen full of homegrown cucumbers, tomatoes, patty pan squash, spaghetti squash, turnips, even some locally milled flour... and we didn't use any of them this time. We've got plans for them - oh, we've got plans. But for now our local eating has been of the here-and-there variety.
After all, as some of you have noticed, we're a bit distracted lately. But I still wanted to throw something together for One Local Summer.
So I did. It wasn't glamorous. But, oooh, it sure was tasty.
Scrambled Eggs and Bacon
Eggs (0 miles)
Bacon (Walnut Creek, Ohio - 126 miles)
Milk (0 miles)
Non-local ingredients: salt, pepper, butter.
... after which, I used some of the leftover bacon, a big juicy Brandywine tomato, some local Romaine lettuce, and non-local bread and mayo for a top-notch BLT. Sorry, no pictures. It didn't last long enough.
