Good Morning, It's Time For Breakfast
This breakfast is brought to you by Ellwood Thompson's — for a couple of reasons. First, all ingredients were purchased there including Billy Bread, The Happy Hen organic eggs, and Applegate Naturals bacon. The real reason for this post is the Widmer 4 year old cheddar.
You see, Ellwood's does this really ingenious thing by having a little basket filled with "nubs" of cheese (for lack of a better word). These nubs are generally smaller pieces they package from larger pieces that may have been used in cooking, tastings, or from samples. The smaller packaging allows you to try a sampling of cheeses for a fraction of the price and allows Ellwood's to probably waste less. This 0.12 pound of cheese not only allotted the perfect amount of cheese for the sandwich above but left just enough for another tomorrow. In addition to the cheddar, I picked up a .11 pound of Piave Vecchio and a Carr Valley cranberry Chipotle Cheddar to sample throughout the weekend.
OK the secret is out — so wander through early as these little nubs of cheese dissapear quickly.
E.A.T. local E.A.T. well
