Dark Days Challenge. Though to be honest, my original plan was spoiled - literally. I had planned on making matang, a Korean candied sweet potato, but the sweet potatoes that Eric picked up last weekend from the farmers market did not survive the week. I was pretty bummed so I took myself on a walk. During said walk I realized that I could just make honey glazed carrots instead. When I got home I cut up the carrots, steamed them for about 5 minutes, then coated them in honey and cooked for a minute. Since I steamed instead of fried, I didn't get the crispy matang effect but, hey, it was good anyway.
And as planned, we threw together a simple local salad of tender mixed greens, goat cheese, and homegrown counter-ripened tomatoes. The only thing not local about this meal was homemade vinaigrette!
