Eating locally in winter

For those of us who live in cooler, northern climes, eating local foods in the winter can be a challenge. Last Saturday, however, we got together for an impromptu dinner with our good friends and neighbors, Maggie and James. While bringing the food to the table Maggie and I realized that everything was local, right down to the wine. If a local winter meal can happen by accident, maybe it's not so hard after all...

The winter feast menu: 
potato leek soup, braised greens with onions, pork sausages, bread from Essential Baking Co., whiskey spice cake with vanilla ice cream.

Sausages with onions and braised kale, collards, and chard

dogs, food, friends... doesn't get any better

Local wine from Sunnyside, WA... a locale well known for its arcres of hops fields and cherry orchards... gorgeous
