Flatbread, Hummus, Broccoli & Green Beans, Curried Okra, and Ginger Spice Cake

Dinner 9/20 by BJ

• Flatbread

• Hummus

• Broccoli & Green Beans

• Curried Okra with Tomato

• Ginger Spice Cake

Tonight's dinner was very bio-regional. BJ made flatbread with freshly-ground organic wheat from Sandhill community, only 3 miles away. She also made a large bowl of hummus to spread on it. The broccoli, green beans, okra and tomato came from Skyhouse's garden. The ginger spice cake was sweetened with sorghum from Sandhill as well.

It feels good to know that most of dinner was pulled from the garden or grown within a 5 mile radius. Sadly, the weather is starting to cool off, so this is the beginning of the end for our garden produce. In a month or so, we'll be opening cans of food that we so diligently preserved over the abundance of summer.
