So far the only sad moments came at work when I failed to pack a sufficient snack and was met with a sign that said "Free Ice Cream in the Freezer". grrrrr.
Needless to say, it wasn't local.
My yogurt didn't cut it yesterday, I'm a breakfast girl, so I cooked Paul's Grains oats I got from Tallgrass and added some honey I got at the farmers market and some Picket Fence milk. I'm gonna venture into the world of sorghum soon. Wish me luck.
Lunch created itself in my brain when i saw a nice juicy burger in the page of Women's Health. I don't have any buns, and I'm trying to work with what I've got, so I whipped up some tortillas with my local flour, a few drips of oil (freebee) and cold water. I've been making homemade tortillas since I was a little kid, so they're pretty much by feel nowadays. I made enough for two burger sized tortillas and two big guys that I threw in the fridge for tomorrow.
I'm starting to really plan ahead and build my "pantry" with basics like homemade pasta and tortillas so I can whip together a meal quickly if need be.
The burger was juicy local beef that I just salted and peppered because the jazz was coming in the toppings.... or should I say Sass.
I topped my burger with some greens from my CSA, local Swiss and some Russ and Frank's SASSY BBQ sauce. I love this stuff.
It's finger-licking good.
A glass of milk rounded out the meal quite nicely.
Dinner is leftovers from yesterday. I brought them to work in case my dinner plans fell through last night, so they're still there.
The Farmer's Market is tomorrow morning again! Where did this week go? I wonder what kinds of new treats they'll have.
