Local Potluck Tuesday June 29

June 29th, 2010 · 6 Comments

It’s not unusual for “spring” in the DC area to go from frosty cool to hot and steamy within days. But this year’s extremely hot temperatures started early and haven’t let up, resulting in summer produce flying through the markets. It’s not yet July and I’m hearing this may be the last week for cherries. We’ve already gotten blackberries and apricots, and I hear peaches, corn and tomatoes are here this week. It makes me wonder if we’ll have anything left to eat in August?!

What are the highlights at your local markets this week? Are you doing anything to preserve summer’s fleeting fruits? I’m freezing berries as fast as I can. I made a yummy whole grain cherry crumb cake that I’ll share with you later this week. And I still have a (last?) pint of gooseberries awaiting its fate.

What local eats are you cooking up?

Please join in and share what local foods you’ve enjoyed this past week!

Local Potluck Tuesdaya few guidelines:
1. Share a relevant post — a recipe, menu or pictures of a meal featuring local foods, from the farmers market, CSA, farm stand or your own garden — using the MckLinky widget below. In the link title field, enter both your post title and your name &/or blog name, e.g., “Lemon Cucumber Salad — Colleen @ FoodieTots.”
2. Bonus points if you included your kids in picking, growing, purchasing or cooking the ingredients for the meal! (And by bonus points, I mean increased likelihood of seeing your post featured in a future post.)
3. In your post, please link back to this post here at FoodieTots, so your readers can find the potluck and be encouraged to join in as well.

Of course if you don’t have a blog, you’re welcome to share in the comments.

That’s it! I hope you’ll join in and share what you’re cooking up that’s fresh & local to you!

    Popping in a day late, but I’m posting a piece about the recent research on how a certain soil bacteria increases serotonin production in the brain, thus boosting both mood and the case for getting kids outside to plant, pick and otherwise connect with their food.

    This isn’t a recipe or menu post. But it is about kids and local food. Hope that’s OK!

    I hope I didn’t miss the apricots! I’m heading out today to see what I can find… I agree with you, I’m wondering what we’ll have left in August…

    Our community garden beekeeper (who has kept records for 15 years) said all the plants are 3 weeks early this year!

    Before buying term insurance, you must compute the duration or the term carefully.
    You’ll also begin making your monthl or annual premium payments.
    You can avail tax saving with other financial products like
    mutual funds, tax-saving bonds and government bonds, post-office savings schemes etc.
