Week 2 OLS West

OLS Week2 Blueberry Muffins

Wow! What an amazing week. Everyone from the west is doing a great job!

I was gone most of the week and unable to make our food choices (long story of camping with the parents). When I got home, I was too tired to do anything but make some eggs. I did wake up early and bake some blueberry muffins before a long day of errands and catch up. They are the perfect on the go breakfast.

Jocele made roasted red potatoes and onions, a salad and fixin's. This is even with the disappointment of a freezer going caput and them loosing all their meat. Way to hang in there Jocele!

Cam made homemade fettuccine with homemade butter and basil. Raspberries for dessert rounded out the meal. She also has a bonus post on how she made raspberry butter.

Ms. Peabody over at Urban Hennery made not one but two local meals. They had New York Strip steaks on the grill with fresh green beans and a salad on the side. To top it off they had local vanilla ice cream from the Sno-Isle co-op with fresh raspberries and strawberries on top. Their second meal:
"We did the chicken on the grill with a medley of vegetables in the grill basket. The chicken was seasoned with another spice mix from Grandma Edna’s, the veggies (potatoes, onions, green beans and zucchini) were seasoned with some sea salt, more of the same herb mix, and olive oil. We washed it all down with tap water and beer from the local Red Hook brewery."
MMMMM Red Hook... Don't forget to check out her new baby chicks. They are so cute!

Cookiecrumb made a wonderful soup straight from her own garden. Check out her greens clippings. Beautiful in it's simplicity.

Amy was going to a potluck and brought some amazing looking Gracious Grilled Salsa. The potluck she attended had some other wonderful local foods.
"This salsa was a hit at the potluck which also featured other spectacular regional foods....marinated moose steaks, salmon, halibut, of course many homegrown salads and rhubarb crisp."

Krystle and Hans-Peter made Penne and Swiss Chard with Gorgonzola Sauce. Chard production is going crazy there and this meal uses up what they have straight from the garden. They've also included the recipe. It looks delicious!

Lauren went with a liquid theme this week. She made milk poached halibut and summer squash with cantaloupe & green tomato salsa. She again has documented her meal composition and has recipes. Very cool Lauren.

Kathy made roasted chicken, green beans and strawberry strudel. She had all but given up the hope of finding any local strawberries this season when she stumbled upon some of the last available at the local market. She also made 12 jars of jam. Yay for late season strawberries!

Trina made a camp dinner using a variety of ingredients dried by themselves. She's survived the fire ants and is back home from her weekend of Energy Independence.

Sarah made some homemade herbed egg noodles with sauteed Walla Walla sweet thinnings, garlic, and zucchini. What is with all this homemade noodle goodness?! You guys are so creative.

Great job everyone! You are all doing such a wonderful job.
