So behind this week!
No pictures have been uploaded, so it's a little boring, but these are SOLE items which have been gracing my lunchbox with their presence:
fridge-pickled carrot sticks
(lazy person's recipe: when you run out of your store-bought dill pickles, cut carrots into sticks and add to the jar with all the leftover pickle juice. Let them chill out in the fridge for a couple days and then get your carrot pickle on!)
boiled root veggies
Dave made a corned beef boil (sadly, the beef was not so SOLE) with all the lovely root veggies we had hanging out: carrots, potatoes, sweet potatoes, parsnips and rutabagas. We took the boiled veggies out and mashed them all together chucky style with a fork.
cheese cubes and boiled eggs
smoked swiss and colby cheese cubes
boiled local eggs... not much else to say there!
an orange and an apple a day
oranges aren't local, but they are organic and in season, and I wouldn't have even bought them on their own if they hadn't have been given to us in our Winter co-op share.
locally made (by my secret Amish farmer) sauerkraut
just when you think you can't eat any more cabbage...
