Dark Days Week 6: Slow Cooker Chicken and Celery Root

slow cooker chicken with celery root

Chicken roasted in the slow cooker is fall-off-the-bone tender.

Here it is, the 6th week of the Dark Days Challenge. Or maybe the 7th week…there seems to be some confusion. It’s a lot of weeks though, and I’ve been having fun. It’s a challenge to find interesting, locally sourced ingredients. First, they’re just hard to find. Second, my work schedule doesn’t leave me with a whole lot of hours in the week to go on the hunt. But somehow that’s making it more fun.

Happy New Year Dill Bacon Bites

bite sized bacon bites

Bacon baskets filled with meaty goodness...the perfect bite.

Bacon is always the right answer. Even if the question has nothing to do with food. (Okay, not really. But if the question is food related, then bacon is definitely the right answer 67% of the time.)

Duck a l’Orange

Duck a l'Orange, frittes, and beans...very French.

I’ve been trying to get this post written and up for a few weeks now. Crazy how time flies when life is insane. But better late than never!

When I read about the Maple Avenue Market in my local paper, I knew I had to figure out a way to shop there. That’s not as dramatic as it seems: it’s only about a 10 to 15 minute drive, so very doable. The owners are just normal people who had big jobs and found farming more fulfilling. They work a small piece of land in Great Falls, VA, source from local vendors, and have the cutest little market ever.
