Not Exactly Food

This isn't a food or wine photo, but just a shot of our hometown at the holidays. Port Townsend is a great local-food community.

Mostly Veggie, A Day Early, Just About All-Local Thanksgiving

We didn’t even do the traditional Thanksgiving dinner of turkey, stuffing, and all the fixings. And we did our dinner a day early because of work schedules. But I still don’t want to eat for another three days. Here are some of our (almost) all-local/regional dinner ingredients.

Yesterday's Farmers Market in Port Townsend

About once a week, we choose a recipe from one of the many cookbooks in our collection. Tonight we're making a celery and root-veggie soup, with some homemade bread. Here is an image of some of the wonderful finds from the Port Townsend farmers market (many - but not all - of these ingredients are for the soup).

Wild Mushrooms

Went out for a short walk in the rain, not expecting much. But we always have bags for mushrooms, just in case.
This is one of our best haul of Lobster Mushrooms (top) and some Chantrelles. Some will get frozen, some will go with dinner tonight.
