Head over to Laura’s at Menu Plan Monday to see what will be on everyone else’s plat this week.  For the Gluten Free Menu Swap, see Fresh Ginger.  She has picked the theme of “locally grown” which is a little tough to pull off here (it is snowing, 10 degrees F with a windchill of 2 degrees F with a Winter Weather Advisory and a Wind Chill Advisory in effect), but I do have some things put up from my garden and the local farmer’s market this summer (canned, dried and frozen) and we have a bunch of grass-feed beef in the freezer that is from a local farm that we purchased in the fall.  I also have some sprouts growing on the kitchen counter for salads.  Can’t get more local than your kitchen counter!
