This weekend, I set out to finally make a completely local meal. Earlier in the season, all excited about my garden, I joined Liz's second One Local Summer challenge. You know.......the challenge of preparing meals from food purchased (and grown) locally.
My meal is a simple one, but oh so yummy! Strawberry Oat Pancakes.
Strawberry's: Sherman Farm - 10 miles
Milk: Sherman Farm - 10 miles
Eggs: Moat Mountain Farm - 4 miles
Oat Pancake Flour: Littleton, NH Grist Mill - 59 miles
NH Maple syrup: Littleton, NH Grist Mill - 59 miles
I have always said that I am not good with any kind of "alongs" and this is no exception, however, what this challenge has done is make me much more aware of how and what my family eats. The nice thing is..........it is also forcing me to look outside of the normal things that we always eat. Oat Pancakes? Who knew that the kids would actually eat them............and LIKE them?
Other than a little knitting, my weekend was spent weeding the flower garden and bathing the dogs. Here are a few pictures of the youngest member after her bath, saying............Nope, you can't take a picture of me......I won't look at you........I can't possibly stay still that long......heehee!
