So, what do you do when your garden gives you Tomatoes, Tomatillos, Garlic, Peppers, Onions, Basil, Celantro and Parsley? Add a Lemon and ...MAKE THE BEST SALSA ON THE PLANET!

 Caution! If you try this Salsa you will feel compelled to drive to the nearest Super Market and throw rocks at the commercial Salsas.

Eating (Really) Local

Eating locally grown and produced food is good for the environment and good for the local farmer or producer.  The dinner pictured below is extremely local. I caught the Catfish about 1/2 mile from home. We grew the Tomatoes, Beans and Herbs used to prepare it.

Hickory-smoked Teryaki Catfish was marinated overnight in a homemade Teryaki sauce
 then grilled until flaky.

 It tastes even better than it looks.

Fresh caught Catfish, home-grown Tomatoes and Green Beans.

 Solar baked Banana Bread for desert. It doesn't get any better than this!
