How about some homemade wheat bread!
While the ingredients used aren't exactly local, instead of buying a loaf of bread this week at the store, I made two loafs myself! I used my brand new KitchenAid and it's fabulous! The recipe takes a while, but it's super easy and it's so tasty!
The hubby couldn't wait to cut of a slice and try it. I enjoyed my warm slice with some homemade raspberry jam! Quite tasty! I'll be making this recipe again!
*There would have been more pictures of this process, but I was mostly through the mixing when I remembered to grab the camera. And when I did, the battery was dead. But it charged while the bread baked! I'll have more pictures next time.

- Locally raised chicken marinated in balsamic vinegar (not local) and seasoned with Herb's De Provence (not really local, but I'm counting it as local since I bought them in the Provence region of France and brought them home.)
- Steamed green beans from the Full Circle Farm.
- Potatoes from another local farm that I can't remember cooked Hobo Style*
If you like eating potatoes in the summer, but hate cooking them on the stove because it's too damn hot, this is best way - ever.
Chop up potatoes - I like Yukon Golds - into medium sized bites. Chop up a medium sized yellow onion. Mix onion and potatoes with olive oil, garlic salt, rosemary, chives or whatever you have growing in your herb garden, in a bowl.
Toss everything onto a sheet of tin foil and wrap it up tight. Toss it onto the grill. Heat until the potatoes are soft. Let cool a bit. Enjoy!

In the meantime, I do love my little raspberries!

Here we are with Cousin Mike (far left) enjoying the art exhibit. Looks like I've got the chair that's just right.

(There are some red ones peeking out of there)
Plus, I harvested another two gallon size bags full of lettuce (on top of the one gallon bag from earlier in the month!)
The radishes are popping up like crazy! (Don't know why the pic is blurry. Obviously I'm so excited about the garden I can't focus!)
And I can watch my garden grow from my new favorite room!
