I had an enjoyable local meal this week. Well, the food was good but getting the kids up to the table was a little bit of a challenge.
So many people in the challenge have been using Epicurious for recipes and that made me curious so I curiously searched their website looking for recipes that featured green beans and squash. This is what I found. Are you curious what I found?
The green beans, potatoes, basil and garlic were from my garden. The patty pan squash, onion, tomato and strawberry-rhubarb jam were from the farmer’s market. The bread was from the local bakery at the grocery store. (I ran out of time to make bread this week. Tomorrow for sure)
Not local featured cooking oil, salt, pepper, Cavender’s greek seasoning, grape jelly and this time, the butter and milk. I also used a can of vegetable broth instead of water, mostly to get the pre canned junk out of my storage space.
Both the green beans and the squash were super excellent. I liked the beans the best; my wife liked the squash the best. Superb! My littlest guy had three helpings of beans! And the older one had two!
I will definitely be making these dishes again. They really didn’t take that much time. It was probably 45 minutes from first prep in the kitchen (water for potatoes) to chow time.
Maybe not a 30 minute meal, but darn fast!
