Breakfast today included molded polenta filled with warm blackberry compote. I found the blackberries in the back of the freezer. They were left over from last year's challenge. The cornmeal used to make the polenta was a trade item. There was a side dish of the blackberry compote (not pictured) which I also polished off, along with a cup of chicory beverage.
For my grazing meals today I am taking 1/2 of a 9" pizza I made last night. The pizza has a cornmeal/wheat crust (made up of items received in trade). For the toppings, I sauteed garlic with canned summer squash (trade item). To that I added some cut up turkey and heated that for a little while. I topped the crust with a tomato/basil sauce I made during the summer. The turnkey/squash mixture was placed on top and then I added dry herbs including parsley, basil, and sage. I sampled the pizza last evening and even though it doesn't look so great - it was wonderful (or maybe I was just hungry). Other grazing items include tomato juice, freezer pickles and a carrot "slaw" made of some of the fresh mutant carrots, a small amount of applesauce, chopped black walnuts and sunflower seeds.
