Twenty Mile Dinner

I'd thought this would be my "Doomer Dinner", but I used electricity to cook it, and so it doesn't qualify.

But it does qualify as an all local (within 20 miles - except flour, sugar, salt, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and vanilla beans - most of the ingredients in the zucchini bread :), and most of it was from our yard.

The menu consisted of:

(leftover) roast chicken
(the rest of the) Farmer's Market corn-on-the-cob
Roasted potatoes and beets
and zucchini bread.

I was preparing all of that at the same time that I was making pickles (zucchini and beets) and drying thyme and onion tops.

My house smells yummy right now with all of the cooking smells - cinnamon-y bread, sweet pickles, and drying herbs.
