The Real Dark Days Weeks #1&2

It seems I was a bit overzealous and thought the challenge started a few weeks ago. It did not. So here is my meal for weeks 1&2 for real this time. First, here is a map of my foodshed:

The green is a 100 mile radius, which I try to source as much of my food from as possible. During winter, however, I sometimes have to extend a bit further to a 150 mile radius (yellow circle). (more…)

Dark Days Week #1

This is my “oh God I’m sick and don’t want to cook, but I have a Dark Days Challenge to do this week” meal. A tapas like meal of tofu salad from The Bridge, Two Guys from Woodbridge scallion microgreens , Abraham’s green olive & herb hummos, Jasper Hill Landaff cheese, a homemade dinner roll from Thanksgiving, swiss chard from Hilltop Acres sautéed with olive oil, S&P, and homemade pickles I made a few months ago. Nothing fancy, but still SOLE.

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.

Edge of the Woods

So I just spent the last hour grocery shopping at Edge of the Woods in New Haven reading labels and trying to find some good local products. This market has a variety of local, organic, vegetarian, and gluten-free items. In the produce aisle they clearly display which veggies are organic and which are not as well as if they are local, USA grown, or grown in another country. Two Guys from Woodbridge sell some stuff in the organic section such as microgreens, sorrels, watercress, arugula, and my personal favorite red butterhead. One new products I found today is this organic pasta sauce.  I grew extra tomato plants this year thinking I would make and can my own sauce to last through the year, but the blight prevented that from happening. It comes from Rising Moon Organics in Dayville, CT. Their website says they have a corporate office in NJ, but I believe they make and ship the product out from CT. (more…)
