Salmon, Bread, and Salad

Go Local Intro:  My cousin Heather hosts this amazing challenge on her blog every year, Go Local.  Essentially, you try and cook as many meals as you can using as many local ingredients as possible.  Everyone shares their posts and gets ideas on how to use the food around them.  No big commitment and no pressure if you miss a week.  Heather also has a guest blogger every week write about what they are doing to use their bounty.  Very fun, you should check it out.  She is already on week three of the challenge for the summer, and I am just now getting around to putting together a post on our local eating.  Oops, hopefully you will see more local meal posts from us this summer!

This was our meal last night:
First off, its nothing amazing or complicated and mostly came about because we had been gone all weekend and need to use up some things from our garden, refrigerator, and freezer.  But here it goes!
Amazing bread.  Heather shared with us this bread recipe and Andrew has really gotten it down to where it is amazing everytime. His loaves keep getting better and better.  Our favorite right now is caramelized onion and garlic, delicious!  So lucky to have a husband who can make such amazing food!
Salad with lots of stuff from our garden.  All of the lettuce, spinach, and peas are from our garden. Also there are some shredded radish bits in there from our garden.  And some cucumber, feta, and walnuts that were around the house and begging to be used, no so local.

And some salmon.  The salmon was caught in Alaska and given to us by some friends so I'm claiming it as local.  Baked in the oven with some onions, garlic, dill, oregano, parsley, and lemon juice.  Delicious and nutritious!
Altogether, a delicious, filling, and healthy meal with most food that came straight through our hand!  Very satisfying, you should give it a try!
