National Preparedness Month Daily Challenge: Day 14
Happy Saturday, everyone! Ready for today’s challenge?
If you missed the previous challenges, you can catch up here:
This one may require a visit to the farmer’s market if you don’t have a garden this year.
Today, I want you to make an entire meal from local food. You can get ingredients from your backyard garden or homestead, or stuff from the farmer’s market.
But here’s the kicker: if rice, wheat, and other grains aren’t something you are growing or grabbing at the farmer’s market, your meal may be bereft of grains. Because that means no bread, no pasta, and no pilaf.
The reason for this challenge is to get you thinking about what does grow locally. No matter how well-prepped you are, at some point, you’re going to run out of food and you’ll be relying on the things you can access where you live.
What are you going to eat?
So, tell me, what kind of delicious and filling meal can you make from food right there in your own hometown? And report on the forum to qualify for prizes!
