I am out of my mind excited for this! I have been dreaming up the idea for months. Like all of you I love food- and love eating locally and Seasonally as much as possible. Though even with all of my constant recipe searching its sometimes hard for me to think beyond what I already know in regards to Vegetable Preparation in particular for example: We love Brussel Sprouts- but to be honest I only know of 1 way to prepare them. Time for that to change..
Being there is an abundance of creative bloggers these days – it occurred to me that maybe with a little collaboration we could together support the idea of Seasonal Foods and in turn nourish our families (and ourselves of course!) with Fruits and Vegetables that are abounding in nutrition. (verses those that are Preserved, Shipped long distances and artificially ripened) Really.. What better way to start 2011?
Today for my Submission I am excited to Feature:
The Combination of Sweet Potatoes, Bacon, Rosemary and Caramelized Onion is one I wish I had discovered sooner. These Perogies are slightly sweet combined perfectly with a Salty Bacon Flavor = Unbelievably comforting.
Now its your turn!
