Weekend with a House Guest

While we set some pretty tight parameters for ourselves for the month of the Eat Local Challenge, my husband and I agreed that we would still join friends and family in social situations and would not turn down their culinary suggestions. As a result we have enjoyed a number of non-local restaurant meals during my dad's visit over this past weekend. He had some restaurants in mind that he wanted to visit, and we also had some in mind that we were excited to share with him. I felt positively spoiled this weekend and am now ready to tackle another week of delicious local food.
Here's a breakdown of what was local:
Friday Breakfast - Vegetarian Quiche, Black Currant Juice
Friday Lunch - Picnic at Red Butte! Pasta Salad using Homemade Egg Noodles with Tomatoes, Green Beans, Cucumber, Chevre, Basil, Chives, and Salt; Carrot Sticks; Cheese and Crackers; Crenshaw Melon (and that finally finishes that huge melon that we have been eating for an eternity)
Saturday Breakfast - Dutch Baby Pancake with Honey; Berry Smoothies using Blackberries, Raspberries, Blueberries, and Homemade Yogurt
Sunday Brunch- Whole Wheat French Toast with Stewed Apples
Snacks - Carrot Sticks, Apples, Apple Cider, Cheese and Crackers
