One Local Summer - Week 12

I didn't get a chance to photograph this week's meal, so I thought I would include some gratuitous cuteness for your pleasure. The black cat is Jinx, ans the vision of fluffiness is Mr. Grey.

This week's meal entry was a totally local chicken gumbo! It included chicken breast and chicken chorizo, corn, onions, green pepper, garlic, tomatoes, celery, thyme and okra. Non-local additions were salt, pepper and oil. It would have been better with bacon (wouldn't everything?) but sadly we were out. It was the only ingredient missing from the recipe though!

Other than cooking, I've been putting up berries and even made my first batch of marina sauce! I'd forgotten how incredibly messy that is. The weather has been terrible for tomatoes this year, so I hope that some big boxes of romas will make it to market eventually.

I wonder if Jungle Jim's has twiglets? I haven't been there but have heard a lot about it. Well done on the eating locally summer - it's a great idea.... and I concur on yoghurt!
