OLS- Week 9

I feel like I cheated this week since I already made this dinner for One Local Summer back in week 5, but my mom was visiting and she had never made pasta before. So, I decided to make pasta and asked her what she wanted on it. She wasn't sure she knew what pesto tasted like and I have a lot of basil in the garden, so presto, pesto. I did make different size noodles this time. But the breakdown remains the same. This time I added a couple of hot peppers from my garden.


We also had a somewhat local meal which I thought I'd write about since it sums up a typical meal around here. I didn't get a picture however. The meal was Thai basil chicken.

Breakdown:

Local:

Chicken - Rumbleway Farm - 25 miles
Thai Basil - My garden
Thai hot peppers - my garden
Garlic - West Chester PA - 20 miles
Onion - PA, but not sure where in PA, I got it at Newark Natural Foods
Brocolli - same as onion, I should have gotten these at the farm market but it is only once a week and I missed it last week so I had to buy these at the store. The sign did say local from PA.

Not local:
Fish sauce
Soy sauce
Rice

And so it goes most days here. All of our animal products and veggies are local. Spices, rice and pasta usually not local.

Those noodles look delicious! I love to make noodles, but prefer to do it in cooler weather.
