Dark Days 8: Down by the (Vegetarian) Bay

Vegetarian "Crab" Cakes (zucchini fritters, essentially, with a good dose of Old Bay)
Cocktail Sauce
Baked Sweet Corn
Green & Purple Lettuces with Radishes, Carrots, and Vinaigrette

We like a lot of horseradish in our cocktail sauce!  And a splash of hot sauce, too.

And then we invited our friend, who is also our plumber, to sit down and eat a bit with us before he fixed a leak in our laundry room.

So the photos ended, and the conversation got lively.  I didn't think to ask my family for their rating of the meal, but they ate enthusiastically and there was a polite, but deadly, argument over the last crab cake.

Specifically, the Dark Days' ingredients, all local and where noted, organic
organic zucchini from the freezer, egg, organic scallions, homemade breadcrumbs from organic flour, homemade ketchup from organic tomatoes, horseradish, corn, another egg, milk, organic lettuces, organic radishes, organic carrots, organic garlic clove in the vinaigrette

Non-local ingredients:  oil, Old Bay, hot sauce, vinegar, fish sauce, salt, pepper

Great idea on the vegetable crab cakes. I'll have to think about doing this sometime. All that horseradish looks good - one of my favorites!
