The Perfect Meal – Organic Surf & Turf

An email I wrote to my mother back in September….

“i just got my first delivery from CT Farm Fresh Express today. i think i told you about it…this lady goes to organic farms all over CT and delivers food for you. anyway, i made a great dinner for b****** and i tonight – all organic, all local. a salad of green butterhead lettuce and microgreens (two guys from from woodbridge – hydroponically grown), garbanzo beans (from this cool farm in northern ct run by Buddhist monks, i also got some tofu handmade by them), scallions, sourdough croutons i made myself, and organic salad dressing. ny strip from a grass fed, pasture grazed cow (no hormones/antibiotics) with a fresh herb rub (thyme, oregano, and rosemary from my garden), pan seared sea scallops caught off the cost of stonington (the ones i’m obsessed with…best scallops ever even though i make the stove dirty when i cook them), with a side of smashed parsnips mixed with sauted shallots, garlic, basil from my garden, and pine nuts. everything was 100% organic….even the olive oil i used to cook with. actually, the lemon is the only thing that might not be organic, but i’m looking in to buying a meyer lemon tree to keep inside so maybe soon i will have that too 🙂  i’ve been experimenting all summer cooking small stuff, but it was great to make this whole nice big meal from such healthy, fresh food!”
