Every so often, I really have to check the camera settings for these photos. I have had several people what technique do I use to get these photos. And too, I have to check my steadiness holding the camera. Here are two meal wee made and photographed. Fun to explore and fun to eat. Both were good. Enjoy!
Yup! ‘Tis the season and it looks like it is going to be a good one! East facing slope in a burn out area. These wild mushrooms are so delicious. Woody and earthy. Great just sauteed in garlic, in salads, in stuffing or sauteed in butter and garlic infused olive oil and made into an omelet. Pictured here are some fresh picked morels – from the Boise Farmers Market yesterday – getting ready to be “omeletized”. The eggs are from Meadowlark Farms in Nampa and the toast is from Acme Bake Shop and their sourdough. Bacon is from Twin Falls, Idaho. Cheers!
Yes. I know. It’s a sin to modify Hollandaise Sauce, even if it is this Easy Hollandaise. So how did I modify the Eggs Benedict? First of all I used some lightly toasted and very fresh Acme Bake Shop Sourdough Bread and then to the Hollandaise, I added 4 large leaves of chopped fresh basil. You can see the large pieces of the basil – from our yard – in the sauce in this photo. What else was local? The eggs. From Meadowlark Farms. Fresh. Deep orange yolks. Delicious eggs. The fresh fruit cup was from The Strawberry Lady at the Boise Farmers Market yesterday, and they too are awesome. It was a great breakfast. Loved it.
Great to have Purple Sage Farms back at the market after graduations and weddings. Congratulations! But we did miss you. Also great to have fresh strawberries in today and fresh carrots!
I have been riding my bike to the market every Saturday because the City of Boise has added a super bike lane to Main Street going East and Idaho Street going West. These specific and guarded lanes help to keep the riders much safer. They are a great thing and I hope they keep them. Enjoy these photos!
This was a great alternative to fried or the basic baked chicken. A little sweet from the brown sugar and a little tangy from the mustard, without the strong mustard presence. I did tweak the recipe a little since the cayenne made it a little to hot for us. Changed it to red pepper flakes. Plus the sauce was not thick enough and just a little bland. You can see the recipe here: Sweet Mustard Chicken Thighs. It is in PDF format. I suppose that if you don’t like chicken thighs – second joints – you can use legs or breasts but make sure they still have the skin on and bone-in. And the wine went extremely well with the dinner. The wine is from Idaho as were the beets, beet greens and strawberries. Enjoy!
