OLS West Week 5

Strawberry Rhubarb Tarts

Our OLS meal was grilled veggies (zucchini, peppers, green beans, onions, and eggplant) with a light splash of olive oil and a dash of balsamic vinegar. For dessert, we had rhubarb/strawberry cobblers. Yum!

Jocele over at Knitting On Call made a wonderful tortilla dish using egg, veggies and local tortillas. The potatoes on the side are an added touch of yum!

Sarah at Sarah's Homestead Blog found local salt! How cool is that... For this week's dinner she made a turnip puff, with mystery golden beans, a sliced tomato with shredded basil, and home baked herb bread. A recipe is also included in her post.

Over at My Green Turtle, she made greenbeans and tomatoes tossed with a bit of red wine vinegar and olive oil. On the side, they had a combination of cauliflower and romanesco cauliflower. They have been gone this week and so made two meals last week.

Laura over at Urban Hennery has been on a cross country trip. While vacationing with family, they created a wonderful local meal from that area. They had whole chickens on the grill, fresh green beans, peapod salad with green onion and bread from the bakery in town. I can't think of a better way to holiday than to eat local foods.

Melissa at Homesteaders in Training, a recent Colorado transplant, dined on two tarts: savory and sweet. While getting a hold of raw milk is proving to be a bit of an obstacle, she used local, pasteurized milk for butter for the crusts. Her new job at a CSA supplied the veggies for one tart, and plums and honey filled the other.

Lauren at Shooting Starts of Thought was inspired by okra. She had local gumbo z'herbs. With recipes. She also made a delicious and beautiful pie.
Great job everyone!
