Yesterday I prepared my first meal for the Dark Days Challenge. If you aren't familiar, you can read more about it here. But, in a nutshell, it means I have accepted the challenge to prepare at least one meal a week from Nov.27 through March 31 that is a SOLE meal - sustainable, organic, local and ethical.
I made oven baked grass fed beef patties, roasted beets and roasted purple potatos! I was going to do frozen broccoli from the freezer stash, but the beets were calling my name at the store :)
The purple potatos were from Adonai Acres, also purchased at Local Roots.
The onion and garlic I used in my beef patties were from a recent visit to the Medina Farmers Market.
The only ingredients I used that were't local were olive oil on the potatos and coconut oil with the beets for roasting and the cornstarch I used when I whipped up a gravy for the patties.
