But for now, this time of year, we do much of our "grocery shopping" right at the farmers' markets and local farm stands, and many of our meals are either all-local, or include local dishes alongside their non-local counterparts.
R also used the leftover bones from the farm-fresh chicken we've been enjoying lately, plus local carrots, oregano, and onions, and home-grown dill and garlic, to make homemade chicken stock yesterday (that's the photo above, taken just after he put everything in the pot). We'll be freezing the stock, so we can use it in other recipes. It also makes for a pretty good soup - during last December's ice storm, we heated chicken stock from the freezer on our wood stove, and had mugs of warm homemade broth while we waited for the power to return. A happy memory!
