Dark Days Eat Local Challenge: Weeks 15 & 16

Week 15: Jim was in Japan, and I was sick with a terrible cold. About the only things I made were homemade turkey soup from the previous week's turkey dinner, and thyme tea with local honey. It was not a big cooking week.

Week 16: During this week, I made homemade angel hair spaghetti, homemade sauce from frozen tomato paste I made this summer, meatballs from local grass-fed beef, and our favorite ciabatta bread.

Unfortunately, Jim caught our cold, so we haven't been cooking much again this week. I did, however, cook up our first goose egg this week. Deliciously rich. They're supposed to be very good for baking, which I'll have to get to this week.

That is one mighty impressive pile o' pasta! Looks yummy. That should have everyone back up to snuff in no time.

Thanks Annette. The homemade pasta is just so amazing—melt in your mouth amazing. I need to start making it more often. It's also a great way to stay warm in a cold house!
