One Local Summer: Southern, week 11

Thursday, August 20, 2009

It’s another light week, and behind schedule to boot, here in the Southern region. Hard to believe that September is just around the corner!


Kristina the Tennessee Locavore comes clean about her tomato addiction, with several of her favorite recipes for these juicy fruits of summer.

Melissa of Bridgman Pottery prepared a local meal of stewed okra, tomatoes, peppers and Arkansas rice, but spent most of her week putting up a great deal of food for winter.

Sarah of A Girl Named Go struggled with a lack of abundant local seafood at the shore, but found a new way to use up squash as lasagna noodles.

Erin of New at the Market shared a healthy salad of baby greens topped with cherry tomatoes, apricots and sunflower seeds.


Nancy of Learning As I Go spent a week in Michigan where they enjoyed roasted green beans, beets, and onions, plus steak marinated with local cherry wine and garlic. For dessert, fresh-picked red raspberries.

Jasmine of Knitting 40 Shades of Green made eggplant with peppers and cheese and a sweet corn and squash soup.

Nana Sadie of Nana Sadie’s Place returned from vacation to a bumper crop of yellow pear tomatoes, which found their way into a fresh bruschetta for dinner.

Here at FoodieTots, eating local became a family affair with extended family in town and a whole lot of family gatherings. Menu items included black & blueberry muffins, peach gelato, peach cobbler, tomato-cheddar salad and more.
