i was just so tired (ols week 4)
so, i had this local chicken in my fridge. which i had gotten out the day before i left on my work trip and then forgot to use it.
so i got home from the canadia and there it was, telling me i’d waste that poor chicken’s loving care to bring me protein if i didn’t use it Right Now. so i threw it in a pan with the old standby seasoning (spike, kids, it’s called spike.), and roasted it in some olive oil. then i realized i had some good local red potatoes and some onions and wow, did richa bring us a lot of unidentified herbs from his garden. so i threw everything else into the cast iron skillet (i’m still tired-i first typed “wrought iron skillet” oh dear) with some more olive oil.
wa-la. all local meal. with the legal exceptions of oil and spice.those potatoes were fabulous, kids. i’m going to do a toss-your-random-herbs-in-here-potatoes again.
unfortunately, i didn’t have the energy to take a picture. now that’s tired. and anyway, it’s chicken and potatoes. how exciting of a photo can that be, really?
meanwhile, my husband made an all-local meal himself while i was gone-i had to tease him about that.
he sauteed up some tomatoes and asparagus and onion, then added some eggs to make a big veggie scramble. seriously, it’s amazing to me how we’re just “happening” to have all-local meals, without even trying all that hard. how did that happen? and why doesn’t it happen to more people?
