Hellz to the yes. It’s the most basic of all the basic blogger intros. “We really love our small town and try to eat local and seasonally whenever we can.”
Bullshit. Let’s be real. Some people rock that narrative so well, and we are just not those people. We REALLY love our small town and we happen to have a great farmer’s market that goes from May to October on Saturdays. But mainly we like going there because it’s a 30 minute walk which feels like exercise and then after we shop we can eat and daydrink. Also I love Aldi and Trader Joe’s, so really we try to eat affordably as we can. Because then we can eat a lot.
But this happens to be a local and seasonally-inspired recipe! That is delicious and healthy and has bacon in it, so really we all win. Succotash is kind of a warm salad with lima beans usually as the main ingredient, and here we have added corn and okra and tomatoes and all the bacon and fresh herbs your little heart desires. It’s great alone as a meal, or as a side dish, or under grilled chicken or fish – all of the things.
