Dark Days Challenge #14

I’ve neglected to blog about my Dark Days meals for the past few weeks since I was away, but I’m back in the game with #14 – Saturday Lunch consisting of homemade potato leek soup, green salad and side of tofu salad.

The soup I made a while ago and had frozen so after returning home to an empty fridge I decided to thaw it out for the week to come. To make it I used leeks from my garden, organic potatoes from CT Farm Fresh Express, homegrown herbs (thyme, rosemary, parsley, oregano), Starlight Garden garlic.

Salad of Two Guys from Woodbridge Red Butterhead, Old Chatham Sheepherding Company’s Camembert cheese, and croutons I made from some Plasko Farm sourdough bread.

And tofu salad (I’m addicted) from The Bridge.

Organic Saturday

This past Saturday I enjoyed a nice organic evening with my friend Theresa from The CuT Mag. We started off by going to see a free screening of Fresh the movie at the Unitarian Church in Westport.  At first we felt a bit odd because neither of us have been in a church in years, but the people seemed nice and we were excited to see the movie. Fresh reminded me a little of Food, Inc. but with a slightly different agenda. My hero Joel Salatin played a prominent role in this documentary, which I of course loved. I could listen to that man talk forever. Literally. (more…)

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!”
