OLS Week 3 - West

OLS Week3 Tomato Pizza w/Red Onion

My meal for this week celebrates the new red tomatoes I've got on my vines. They are the most delicious thing ever. I decided a red onion, bell pepper, and fresh basil pizza with homemade sauce and a ton of fresh tomatoes on top. It was so yummy, absolutely no leftovers to be had.

Laura over at Urban Hennery made a feast! After having a bout of almost local meals, she pulled off the grande finale for the week. They had grilled chicken, salad, roasted veggies, and even an appetizer. To round out the meal they had some local wine and ice cream. YUM!

Cookiecrumb over at I'm Mad and I Eat made Joe's special:
"Joe's Special. It's a historic San Francisco mish-mash dish of ground beef, onions, mushrooms, spinach, eggs, and seasonings. If you follow the recipe on that link, be advised that you will get a wet, gray mess."
She lists her Joe's special method which includes very basic ingredients. It sounds delicious!

Sarah at Sarah's Homestead Blog made Homestead egg frittata filled with yellow squash, onion, garlic, spinach and local sharp cheddar. On the side: green beans sauteed with garlic and fresh out of the oven herb-filled bread. To drink: a freshly pulled pint of Blake’s home brewed Hefeweizen. Her glass of beer is a site to behold.

Amy at Amystery went out and caught her own food. Wild Alaskan salmon never looked so good.

Jocele at Knitting on Call found local tortillas to make a wonderful Mexican inspired egg taco with local veggies.

Lauren has made another masterpiece over at Shooting Stars of Thought. She is so wonderful to take us through her selection through her shopping experience and ultimately gives us her wonderful recipes. This week's menu includes: grilled yellowtail & cipollini onion kebobs with ginger-chili marinade, Nicoise Potato Salad, Grilled Corn and Radish Salad with Spicy Lime Dressing. Check out her haul from the market, beautiful!

Krystle and Hans-Peter at Taste the Seasons are using up the last of the chard.
"After finishing this meal, we knew that we had come up with a dish that could serve as a main course, without leaving any stomachs unsatisfied."
And of course the recipe is included in the post. The colors of chard are amazing.

Human error has caused me to not catch Turtles week 3 post. (and I thought I was doing so good too...grrr).

Turtle's meal looks wonderful. There was a wonderful salad with baby gems, cucumber, eggs, tomatoes and cheese. They also have corn on the cob! We don't have that here yet~lucky! She also baked some home made bread and there where strawberries in the photo as well. She lists all her mileage there as well. Great job!

I swear, every time I do the weekly roundup I feel like I've gained 10 lbs from just looking at all the delicious food everyone is making.

Great job! See you next week.
