No Eggs, but More Beets!
This is going to be another photo-heavy post. Ally mentioned that the photos were loading slowly in the previous post, so could you all tell me if this one is stalling for you, too? I hate it when photos don’t load quickly — and I may be importing the wrong size for them to work well here. Let me know.
I didn’t think I was going to be able to post a One Local Summer meal this week. We were in Boston last weekend, so didn’t have a chance to get to the farmers market. I’m not sure a Sunday meal technically counts for the previous week, either.
But at least this week we didn’t have eggs! (Need I even mention, at this point, that all the veggies came from our favorite farmer, Geo?)
Beets still made an appearance, though. This time, the beets themselves were peeled,
(Don’t they look like malachite? Red malachite? Lovely.)
…and roasted in the oven with olive oil and whole garlic cloves. Trixie, my strange food eater, really likes radishes, so every now and again I will get some. I heated some apple cider vinegar, dissolved in some sugar, then poured that over sliced radishes. Let it cool, then eat.
I threw some orange juice (and a bit of cornstarch) with the beet greens. You can also see some pan-fried zucchini and summer squash (the nice, tender, early summer small ones). The hummus is not local. And the bread is from a local baker who has a stall at the market, but I’m pretty sure the flour isn’t local.
OK. Tomorrow, I promise, a real post!
