A Simple Local Breakfast

Since deciding to blog full time I do wonder how I ever pulled off a full time job on top of writing sometimes for 6 different places at a time. One of the things I told myself was that when I made this leap I was going to try and live just a little simpler. This is one of those posts.

On an early morning last week I simply took the dog on a little hike and foraged for chanterelle mushrooms. I was recently introduced as to how easy this can be and detailed a post on 17 Apart called foraging for edible mushrooms in Richmond, Virginia. Upon returning to the house on this cool damp day — I simply sautéed my find, added some local eggs, and sliced up a local cantaloupe.

So this is my simple local breakfast. I disagree with the commercial that faster is better. On this day simpler and a little slower was better.

E.A.T. local E.A.T. well

An avid home cook, I believe in using simple ingredients, local when possible and am inspired by the principles of supporting a sustainable food system. I’ve cultivated this blog as a way to share my passion for the preparation and enjoyment of food in a way that everyone from beginners to long time foodies can get involved in.
