‘Tis the season of gratitude. Gratitude for things so much bigger than ourselves. Like the beauty that is giant red mustard greens flourishing in the cool air. Like the tart-sweet-crispiness that is a North Georgia apple. Like the satisfaction that is volunteering together to create something that no one of us could do alone.

Come spend this season with Augusta Locally Grown. There’s plenty of gratitude to go around.

Cheers!

Kim

Some of the happenings this week…

 

Cloud Eggs

As expected, with the joy of the holidays comes the stress of the holidays.  Trying to find time for cooking, shopping, decorating, and communing with friends and family can lead to some tension and headaches.  So, it is also a time for some self care and spoiling.  Take a moment from your busy schedule to make and enjoy a nice, fulfilling breakfast for yourself.  It will start you off on the right foot for crazy day ahead.  

Mashed Purple Sweet Potatoes with Lime and Yogurt

I hope everyone enjoyed a festive and fun Thanksgiving and is ready to move into December and the inevitable holiday rush.  Even with warmer than normal temperatures, another inevitable thing is the slow down in seasonal fresh vegetables.  It is also an opportunity to get out of your comfort zone, be creative and try something new.  There is no reason to give up eating local and fresh, when you can just try some new combos of flavors that maybe you would have bypassed if it wasn’t the fifth time you were having sweet potatoes this week…This recipe (and the others on the link) is such a recipe.  It is vibrant and beautiful on the plate as well as your palate; hitting all of the sweet, sour, salty, bitter, and maybe even a little umami notes.  Happy experimenting!

Couscous with Roasted Winter Squash, Apple, and Chorizo

Well, it is the week before Thanksgiving and in between all of the prep for the big day, we’ve still got to eat…cue seasonal, easy recipes that can make a lot.  I made this recipe last night and it is delicious and full of flavor.  I wish that I had doubled or tripled it; which you can easily do (as long as you have a big enough bowl to mix it all in.)  My one tweak would be on the apples.  I used granny smith and cut them into 1/2 inch dice as instructed; they disintegrated.  Next time, I would cut them into 1 inch pieces or reduce their cooking time.  Everything tasted great, the apples were just off texture-wise.  Also, definitely taste at the end and don’t skimp on the smoked paprika.  Happy Thanksgiving!!

My mom is my inspiration. She taught us girls to feed the soil with every natural resource that came her way. It would be decades before I appreciated her genius. It applies to everything, from food to kids to community. Love you Mama!
