After two weeks of life exploding and preventing me from participating in One Local Summer, I finally pulled together a completely-local dinner last night:

one local summer, week 5

This is salad mix under sautéed tofu, purple beans, purple pepper, zucchini, yellow squash, and mushrooms, all either acquired directly from local farmers at the farmers’ market or labelled "local" at the co-op.  Non-local ingredients: olive oil, salt, pepper, paprika, basil, parsley (imported from my dad’s CSA).  It was pretty mild, but that meant that the flavors of the veggies came through.

handspun wool/mohair sock

This is the beginning of a sock I’m knitting out of my handspun.  I am possibly unreasonably excited about knitting socks with handspun.  (I’m also happy about knitting socks on a 3 and a 4 instead of a 2.5 and a 2.75mm needle.)
