Harvest time, locally.
We are now into the month of September and well into the harvest season. Local farms have been producing some of summers finest, everything from corn to squash along with peppers and tomatoes and a dozen other fresh veggies that I have not mentioned. I have been fortunate to have friends who grow home gardens and offer up some of their pride.
Here are a few of our favorite veggie plus dishes along with some incredible cheeses in the mix.
Also if you get the chance in the next day or so take a look at the awesome "Harvest Moon"
Simple fried zucchini with seasoned bread crumbs and a bit of grated Romano.
I can't begin to describe the wonderful taste of this egg dish. The eggs are local, from Tom's "Hard Rain Farm" in Burlington Connecticut. These eggs are tops, a double yoker in every carton. There is also in the mix fresh tomato, onion, zucchini, eggplant, ham, and Colby cheese we picked up in Vermont. Crowley Farm raw milk sharp Colby.
One of the 5 best comfort foods around. Eggplant Parmigiana. We were given a few of these eggplants the other day and were put to use pronto. Again, seasoned bread crumbs, mozzarella, grated Parmesan and a light tomato sauce. Baked for about 10 minutes and served nice and hot.
So folks take advantage of this local bounty while it's at it's peak. We can get most anything at anytime of the year, but it's not "local"
