One Local Summer: weeks 7 and 8

I’m combining these two because the meal for week 7 was pretty lame. I was out of ideas, and out of food, so I threw together this lunch:

Homemade bread (with locally milled, organic unbleached flour), home-grown carrots (rainbow variety, two colours of which are shown here), and a bowl of salad greens from the garden. 

The week 8 meal was much better. It was an exciting meal because it contained several kinds of vegetable, all harvested from my garden:

Local new potatoes (bought from the supermarket but grown in Delta, BC). Broccoli, carrots, and sugar snap peas from the garden (I accidentally burnt the onions so they were left out!). Tossed with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and salt. Very tasty. And I discovered that stir-fried sugar snap peas taste AMAZING!
