Plenty (of Local Foods)

Natalie

Roger and I have started reading Plenty, a book about a couple who attempt to eat locally (within 100 miles) for one year.

Although I am not prepared to give up sugar and coffee, I was inspired to use the vegetables from our garden to create dinner.  We had brown sugar carrots, rosemary baked beets and zuchinni pancakes topped with cheddar cheese.  Surprisingly, the zuchinni pancakes got rave reviews from C.J., who has a severe case of vegetaphobia.    The recipe was simple:  grated zuchinni (well-drained), chopped red onion, egg, and bread crumbs, salt and pepper fried in a little olive oil and topped with cheese.  I think next time I will add some garlic powder and spices to give it even more flavor.
