Fresh Food Finds
This weekend was all about some local tasty goodness.
My husband caught a rainbow trout in a nearby pond. It’s tiny but wasn’t going to make it if he had released it so we had a nice little appetizer out of it.
We made a bruschetta out of veggies from the weekly CSA. That’s Nevada tomatoes, onions, basil and (oops some canned olives) the bread is from a ‘local-ish’ store out of Truckee, California.
Next up, fresh peaches and pears! Mmmmm. Now, these might be a stretch because they are from Idaho. But, I bought them from a gal that lives here in Reno because her family owns the farm. She brings them into to ‘town’ to sell. And, they were the fruit supplier for my CSA last year. Kelley’s Canyon Orchard in Filer, Idaho.
And, BONUS, I picked up some local (as in down the street) honey while we were at an elementary school fundraiser. Literally, the kids from the farm were selling these jars of honey. How could you say NO? I’m going to check out their beef prices.
Did you find any fun local foods this weekend?
