Somehow, I spaced out Monday and my SSFC post. Let’s pretend it is Monday again.
Click on the this badge to link to the other participants and see what they prepared this week!
I spent that past week in Minnesota and Wisconsin and during that time I ate a tone of local foods. Several meals included my step-dad’s squash. Do you remember my “Sea of Squash” photo from a few months ago? Here is a small fraction of what was harvested.
Their garden is done for the year so we were eating up bits and pieces from their final harvests. Chard made its way into most of our meals. So did the last of the zuchhini, bell peppers, and beets.
One thing that my mom buys before I arrive is cheese curds. We grew up eating cheese curds in Wisconsin. That was before you ever found them on any restaurant menu deep fried when they were just cheese curds.
If you have an opportunity to eat a really fresh cheese curd, it will squeak when you eat it. I know that doesn’t make sense, but if you have had that experience, then you know exactly what I mean.
