My mother came to visit last week.
She brought me food gifts.
Which, if you didn’t know, are the best kinds of gifts.
Farm fresh eggs.
Bacon ends and pieces.
Lettuce and mint from her garden.
Like I said: the best kinds of gifts.
On Cackleberry Plantation. Does it get any better? Well, yes.
I fried some up for breakfast. Eggs on top of mom’s lettuce, with raw sauerkraut, strawberries from my local farmer’s market and some banana bread with pastured butter on top. Yes, I sometimes eat my food on top of my books. (P.s. It Starts with Food is so good! More on this tomorrow)
I’ve discovered that fresh eggs are one of my favorite foods.
I’m thinking I’ll make a point to get some whenever the opportunity presents itself. To me, fresh inherently means “more nutritious.” The fresher the better when it comes to eggs, meat…veggies…everything! That’s why I like farmer’s markets so much.
Do you eat farm fresh eggs when you can? Duck eggs are next on my list…I hear they’re Ah-mahzing.
