I am headed out of town for a week and have been making an effort not to go to the markets, the grocery store and to try to use up the food that is sitting around the house so that it doesn't need to be thrown out. All of my meals have had local components in an effort to use up CSA produce but often I throw in a nonlocal element that also needs to be eaten, which disqualifies the meal for the challenge. There have been some interesting combinations this week , like crepes with stuffed pepper filling and cheese, bok choy, grape tomatoes and jalapeno chicken sausage, and teriyaki stir fry with rice stick noodles. For my local meal this week, I think we will have to use the "clean out the fridge" omelet.
I sauteed some onions and zucchini, added in some cherry tomatoes, a half of an Anaheim pepper,some refrigerator dried basil and two or three pickled jalapeno slices. I then beat two eggs with a dallop of milk and salt and pepper as well as the last of the smoked mozzarella and cooked that over low heat. It was pretty good but made a huge meal.
