Merry Christmas everyone!
I have to admit that I wasn’t sure that I could pull this off, but our Christmas eve dinner was our local/organic meal of the week.
Chicken Wild Rice soup: local onions, celery, garlic, milk. homegrown chicken and chicken stock, Minnesota lake harvested Wild Rice and local dairy cream, milk and butter.
Along with the soup we enjoyed strawberries and blueberries from the freezer, homemade salsa from garden tomatoes, sliced ham from our local pig, fresh buns from the bakery in town.
Exceptions were the condiments for the ham, chips and of course all the Christmas Cookies for dessert. But I was pleased that I could put out as much as I did from the pantry and freezer.
