Week 6 ~ New England & International
Fran and her man Dan gobbled up an entire Deborah Madison-inspired tomato gratin made with lovely heirloom tomatoes. Wouldn't you? It looks delicious!
Along with several other local meals, Wendy made ratatouille for the first time, and found that it tasted pretty good, despite looking "a little nasty".
Leslie's zucchini gratin with goat cheese was similar to my own crustless zucchini pie, both good uses for the super-abundant summer vegetable.
Heather borrowed her mom's rolling pin in order to whip her pasta into shape, topping it with homemade tomato sauce with zucchini.
Korinthe had roasted veggie tacos this week, and is finding that eating a more vegetable-based diet is making her feel healthier.
Lisa's meal of noodles, veggies and queso blanco was Asian-inspired, and included a starter featuring her own homemade crackers and cream cheese. (note: I realize the link isn't working, but that's what it says in my feedreader. Lisa, where did your post go?)
Magid made a simple corn & potato chowder, along with a sauté of veggies.
Laurie enjoyed an incredibly fresh roast chicken dinner: just one day from plucked to plate.
In Ontario, peaches for dessert followed Mary's signature pizza and cucumber salad. What's your signature pizza?
And in Ireland, Moonwaves enjoyed hamburgers with her own homemade ketchup. You know, I've never made ketchup because we don't really eat all that much of it, but I may just have to give this recipe a try.
Thanks again for another great week of local food!
