Local Love

Photo by Faire.

Last night, Graham and Kyla joined us for a Local Love Dinner. They brought a ham from a "happy pig" at Sloping Hills Farm (Qualicum, I believe). We gathered sweet potatoes (mashed with honey and butter), baby potatoes (tossed with butter, roasted garlic, and herbs), brussels sprouts (sauteed with Sloping Hills bacon), corn on the cob (grilled with herb and garlic butter) and golden beets (foil-wrapped and roasted on the BBQ with the corn, then served on the sauteed beet greens) from our favourite farm and our own backyard. I made pumpkin creme brulee for dessert and we cheated on the local-only rules with the bit of sugar we sprinkled on top to brulee. I used honey instead of sugar for the custard though. We set up the table in the living room in front of a crackling fire. Okanagan wines flowed. It was sooooooo yummy.
Oh, living in BC is sweet (and savory!)
