The local food adventure begins!

Tonight is the start of our local food year!  We got our farm share this evening, which included spinach, lettuce, onions, asparagus, eggs, bread, jam, and a basil plant.  For our first meal I made a sauce of local spinach, homemade chevre (goat cheese), onions, and butter, served on top of homemade pasta, that I made with local eggs.  The only non-local ingredients were a little bit of chicken, sun-dried tomatoes, olive oil, italian herb seasoning, and the flour to make the pasta dough.  I had frozen the pasta from a large batch I made a few weeks ago- so the meal only took me about 20 minutes to make.  So far eating local is easy and tasty!
