OLS West Week 10

The last week of one local summer. It's been a lot of fun seeing what everyone has been making.

At Chez Gnome, I decided to try something new, Salad Nicoise. The only thing not local was the tuna. Of course, as been the case with most meals, we dug into it before we could get a good photo.

Homesteaders in Training made gnocchi AND red Wagon lettuce, homemade buttermilk dressing with fresh chives that traveled from Maine to Colorado and buttermilk marinated Colorado chicken. Yum!

Sarah at Sarah's homesteading blog made Hearty Summer Vegetable Stew & Drop Biscuits. What a great idea for extra produce when the nights are getting cooler.

Turtle had a yummy salad with tomatoes, red carrots, and baby gem lettuce. Lets hear it for a great salad.

Laura from Urban Hennery had halibut fillet on the grill with steamed green beans and toasted bread. And she says it so well in her post:
"This is it, our last One Local Summer Challenge meal. It’s become such a part of our lives, spreading so that pretty much every meal we cook this summer is 75% or more local. Hard to imagine that we won’t “have” to report on it every week any more. It’s been a wonderful trip, an exploration of our local food shed that I don’t think we would have made so thoroughly so soon without the one local summer challenge."

Thanks everyone!
