Sunday is more of a day for relaxation, and eating the fruits of the labor of the day before. I love taking the time to make a nice big breakfast on Sunday morning, as it gives me the energy to do all the cooking on Sunday afternoon when I inevitably process all the purchases from the Saturday farmer’s market.
While most Sundays breakfast entrees consist of something local, this is the first time I’ve made a conscious effort to make sure that the entire breakfast is local. The One Local Summer project hosted by Liz at Pocket Farm was just the thing I needed to push me over that threshold of mostly local to COMPLETELY local. I’m coming in late in the game, but better late than never! So without further aideu, let me describe what graced our plate this week.
Clockwise, from the top – potatoes and onions from Just This Farm CSA, sauteed in a touch of canolive oil until browned – to say that we’ve been receiving a bounty in the past few weeks CSA boxes is an understatement. We’ve got so much stuff that we’ve been sharing much of it with family and our neighbors.
Next, Chicken Breakfast Sausage Patties from Speckled Hen Farm, purchased at the Worthington Farmer’s Market. Great flavor. We also purchased some chicken brats that we’re cooking later today, and a stewing chicken for making stock later this week.
At the bottom is an omelette made from 3 Aracauna eggs from Just This Farm CSA, filled with local sharp cheddar cheese purchased from a vendor at the Worthington Farmer’s Market.
At left, is seedless watermelon purchased at the North Market Farmer’s market, and at 11 o’clock is half of a ham and cheese croissant from Omega Artisan Bakery.
Needless to say, we’re both stuffed. And feeling pretty good about supporting local farmers.
