Go Local Challenge: Finally a local meal!

I'll admit that I haven't been doing too well at the cooking locally. But the other night, I feel like I've rebounded.


  • 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*

*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!

My sister just told me about potatoes on the grill. She did not tell me about them being called "hobo style" -- which I love. I'm gonna try this soon.

Our local meals have looked a lot like that recently. I don't eat a lot of meat, but when I do I'm so happy to find locally raised chicken!
