I've gotten out of the habit of keeping up with the various meals that I eat. At one point, I was very good about updating my menus on a regular basis but I've gotten out of the habit of doing that. I've always found posts about menus on seasonal eating type blogs to be very helpful when I'm planning my own meals so I'm going to post mine on here. I think having a weekly roundup will be easier for me than a daily post. I also want to note that I'm going to be brutally honest when I post my menus. I live in the real world - this blog isn't an experiment to see how "pure" of a local eater I am. It's about trying to eat local whenever I can. I also don't always have time or the willpower to make from scratch dishes every meal. On Thursday, we put in a new border in our front yard and the thought of making something to eat for lunch was too much to deal with. So we got fast food.
I'm missing a few meals but I've got most of them from this week.
Dinner - Zucchini-Potato Frittata
Breakfast - local eggs scrambled with feta and local garlic scapes, sliced local peaches
Lunch - Leftover frittata
Dinner - Homemade flour tortillas made with local lard, filled with local chicken and onions. Salsa made with local tomatoes, cilantro and garlic.

Lunch - Leftover quesadilla

Dinner - Potato leek pizza made with all local vegies and peach granita
PS - I am so happy at how great our pictures turned out! I realize they're nothing when compared to Heidi's gorgeous pictures but I'm pretty damned proud of them!
