Not sure what week were in, I think 8 but oh well, I'm just here for the fun of it.

We have been presented by our administrators with some challenges!  Yay!  I love a good challenge.  This week:  One pot meals

Easy schmeezy, lemon peezy.

Ham from Huneke Farms
Kabotcha squash from Many Hands Gardens (Theilman, MN)
Beets from Merril's MerriBees, Chatfield MN

Take a large 6 lb ham from a farm not more then, hmmmmm - 10 miles away from yours.

Place in a roasting pan, set quartered squash and peeled beets in pan. Add a cup of water and sprinkle some cumin, black pepper and chili pepper on top, cover with foil  and roast in 350 degree oven for about 1 1/2 hours.
I made a little sauce from the juices by adding a little flour mixed with goat milk to top off the ham (guilty!  I can't eat meat without a sauce, I am a pure mid-westerner).

Crazy good, and easy, local, sustainable, organic, ethical and just darn right.

I'm tellin' ya - I am on a mission to prove to people this really is possible!

  1. I'm sorry, I just gotta' ask: OVER roasted or Oven roasted? Either way you made me smile. Love your nice local meal...
