OLS Week 3 and a CSA Report

I didn't get a picture of this week's CSA share, but it was a good one. There wasn't a lot to it, but I'm making good use of it.

  • 0.5 lb sugar snap peas
  • 0.25 lb snow peas
  • 1 head lettuce
As for this week's One Local Summer meal, I fell back on those fresh eggs again. I'm doing a bit of a "vegetarian experiment" and finding local protein sources other than eggs has been a bit of a challenge. I don't mind too much, though.

This week I made a frittata, which has become one of my favorite egg dishes since I discovered them last year. A few eggs, some sauteed garlic, scallions, asparagus, and green and yellow zucchini and I'm a happy, local-eating girl. I added a side of new potato homefries and I was satisfied.

How do you make your potato home fries? They look really good and I'd love to add them to my rotation, particularly in the winter when they are a BIG part of my meals! Do you have a local dairy? That can be a good way to get protein when one is not eating meat.

livinglocalzone - I dice the potatoes and either parboil them until they just start to get tender, or microwave them for a couple of minutes until they're just tender. Then I cook them with some onion in frying pan with a little oil over medium-high heat until they start to get crispy brown on the outside and the onions are translucent and starting to brown. There is a local dairy that brings milk, yogurt, cheese, etc to the farmer's market I visit, but I'm not much of a milk drinker. I do eat yogurt every day, but that gets old eventually. :) I'm hoping that I'll be able to get (and freeze) some local beans this year so that I have them for the winter/spring.
