Slow Food International Menu For Change Photo Roundup
The last time you heard from me, I mentioned I was participating in a Slow Food International challenge. The challenge was to cook two meals a week, for three weeks, using ingredients from within a 200-mile radius of my home. I’ve been sharing photos of these meals on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, but in case you missed them, here they are.
This is what else I got at the first indoor farmers’ market of the season.
Fennel, Swiss chard, broccoli and tomatoes are simply unheard of at a winter farmers’ market here. Today’s weather is blustery and cold, and shrimp corn chowder is on the stove, with the last of the local corn in it. Most of the leaves are finally on the ground, and soon it will snow. This bounty was an honest-to-goodness blessing, one that we are mighty grateful to have. As the holiday season gets started here, don’t forget to count yours.
