Freezer harvest Monday

From the outdoor freezer (aka the garden) a leek; from the indoor freezer, shredded summer squash, green beans, corn, string beans, and Swiss chard.  All this deliciousness went into a large pot of soup featuring chicken from our friend Nina at Ruit Farm North, my freezer veggies, some local carrots and potatoes, and some organic celery from who knows where.

It simmered for a bit, then was paired with some delicious black pepper parmesan bread for a dinner designed to make me forget the rainy weather.  Mostly.

On Christmas Day, I used a leek and some of the girls’ delicious eggs to make a fabulous egg dish.  Leeks rock.  I forsee more leeks ahead in a quiche, perhaps.

This post is part of Daphne’s Harvest Monday series, featuring harvests from our gardens all year round.

    Your soup looks delicious. I am so into soups this time of year. Tomorrow I’m using the last of the leftover Christmas ham (with the ham bone) to make some bean soup. It will probably have a bit of garden produce, like onions and garlic, but mostly it will be beans (local ones, but not mine) and ham.

    lol, the outdoor freezer. You do have to have a sense of humor at this time of year. The soup sounds so good, I love soup at this time of year.

    That leek is HUGE! I can’t wait to grow some next year. That’s a fabulous looking spread too. Nothing like a hot bowl of soup on a cold day.

    I am so glad that you are enjoying our chickens, Ali. The soup looks delicious! I think I may have to be making a big pot of something today…
