One Local Summer Week #1 - Veggie Hero

Liz over at Pocket Farm started the One Local Summer challenge last summer, during which bloggers commited to creating at least one local meal per week and posting about it on their blogs. It was very interesting to follow along and see what kinds of things people from the different regions came up with, and so when she decided to organize it again for this summer, I was keen to take part myself this time.

We headed to the beach to meet some friends for a picnic a few days ago, and while using up some odds and ends from the fridge, I unexpectedly ended up making my local meal for the week.
I used a bagette from a local organic bakery (which gets its flour from a local flour mill) to make a vegetarian hero sandwich that wouldn't require plates or cutlery to eat. I spread the bread with some homemade pesto, and topped it with the remainder of a round of brie from one of my favorite local cheese makers. I roasted a red pepper (from a local greenhouse) and grabbed a handful of arugula out of the garden to finish it off.

Mmm...a taste of the Mediterranean on the shores of the Pacific!

That looks yummy!! We had a somewhat local meal, but I don't think it was local enough to use for my OLS post. A local flour mill...awesome!
