Monday’s Menu – 9 Local Ingredients!

Monday Menu – Green Bean Spaghetti Carbonara, Garden Salad, Cucumber Salad
Farm Share Food – Green Beans, Onion, Head Lettuce, Bell Pepper, Cucumber, Dill
Other Local Food – Bacon, Burpless Cucumber, Jalapeno

Putting together last night’s meal was fun for me. As I was cooking I realized many of my ingredients were local, even the ingredients that are there for flavor like bacon and onions. The bacon we got at Oscar’s Smokehouse on a recent trip. Lucky for us we live close enough that many local stores carry Oscar’s products.

We visited family this weekend. They have a beautiful garden and we got to come home with cucumbers and peppers. The cucumber is called a Burpless Cucumber. It is bred with less seeds and that is it’s actual name.
