The second meal this week was also cooked in the SchlemmerTopf. We were gifted half of a beautiful blue pumpkin, probably a Queensland Blue or a Crown Prince. Farmer Man took some of our home-grown pork chops, cubed the pumpkin and roasted it in the clay oven. Baked potatoes, our own Blue Mac, accompanied the meal. The pumpkin was outstanding - sweet and a great texture for having been roasted - not too mushy.
Many Thanks! to Laura of the (not so) Urban Hennery for organizing this excellent winter challenge. Check out her blog because there are so many great tips for sourcing local food, preserving, growing and cooking. Many of the bloggers who participated are fabulous cooks, the recipes and ideas are astounding! Have you been giving more thought to buying local or growing your own? Maybe we'll see you blogging next year!
