Day 25 - NY Locavore Potluck!

This weekend was exhausting! But fun! We had 15 people at Buffalo's potluck and loads of AMAZING food! I'll add more recipes to this post as soon as they come in from folks.

Annie's Chicken and Potatoes in Garlic Sauce

Pour in 1/4 cup of olive oil in the bottom of the crock pot set on high. 10 cloves of garlic cleaned, peeled, and cracked. Lay the hen on top of the garlic and then cut up 10 potatoes into bite sized pieces and lay around and on the hen. Add 3 tbls sweet paprika, 1 tbls salt and 4 tbls fresh tarragon. Cover and cook for 3 1/2 to 4 hours. Remove the hen and broil until the skin crisps. Serve with a hearty bread to mop up the juicy garlic sauce.

I brought in a multigrain boule from the Lexington Co-op and put out a fresh jar of green tomato and raspberry jam on the side.

Susan's Apron Pasta Primavera

Go out to the garden and pick red peppers, green peppers, basil, onions, garlic, yellow and red cherry tomatoes. Add Swiss Chard from Native Offerings Share. Roast the peppers over an open flame on the stove. Saute diced onions, green pepper and garlic in a little olive oil, adding the tomatoes and cook till the skins pop. Then add the basil. Bring a pot of water to a boil and cook one box of Gioa (local pasta)
fettuccine. Add cooked fettuccine to skillet with the veggies and heat through. You can add Parmesan cheese and basil at this point.

Bread and Butter pickles were brought as well.... recipe to follow later...

Mo's Vegetarian Irish Stew

Veggie stock (homemade preferred)
White and red onion
Garlic, celery, chopped greens (any kind)
Carrots, cabbage, potatoes (white, red, or sweet potatoes or variety)
Vegetarian sausage from Lexington Co-op. 
Put it all in an oven stock pot and cook at 400 for 40 minutes, cool for five minutes and eat it still steaming hot.
