We used to live on the Oregon Coast, and the girls were used to enjoying dinners of fresh caught salmon or steelhead, and sometimes even elk.Â Now that we’ve moved back to the city, those days seem long gone.Â The girls wereÂ very happyÂ when,Â last evening, my hubby brought home some freshly smoked, locally caught, NW salmon from one of his students.Â Â Â
Dinner was almost 100% locally produced – the exception being the rice, which was grown in California (so, at least it was all West Coast produced).Â We had steamed rice, topped with tomatoes and peas (from our garden), and local shallots sauteedÂ in butter.Â A nice side of delicious smoked salmon rounded out the meal.Â Easy, tasty, healthy, local(ish), all in one meal.
Other folks striving to eat localÂ – Mama Urchin, Â Little Home Blessings, bottomland, and another Portlander – Enviromom.
