One Local Summer - Week 2

We actually did pretty good this week - Tuesday night I made pork chops (from our pig), egg noodles from our Amish neighbor and green beans and corn from last year's garden.

Thursday night I made hamburgers (our steer, Amish cheese and store brought buns) with homemade ketchup (that I made 2 years ago), french fries (Ramseyer Potato Farms - 15 miles) and salad with onions, radishes and spinach greens (all from our Amish neighbor.

Yesterday we had brautwurst (from our local butcher - local meat), baked beans and corn from last year's garden.

For us, it's actually pretty easy to eat Local - as we raise 90% of our own meat. The only meat we buy is chicken - so the side dishes are what kills me.

No pictures - my SD card from my camera locked up, and I can't add or remove pictures from that card.
