I actually DID cook while I was on vacation. We were allowed to take over the beach house kitchen one night in order to prepare some local food — seafood! It's not easy cooking in a poorly stocked kitchen, for 12 people with all different tastes and one shrimp allergy. All-in-all, we managed a fine meal — even using some local produce and nearly six pounds of fresh caught seafood.
I posted the recipe over at Eat Local Challenge in honor of the October Challenge Month, and sticking to at least one local meal (okay a lot of local seafood) for the week.
