Good Food Monday, Jul 30 2012 

Saturday was my first visit to the St. Matthews farmer’s market since being in Alaska. I got a lot of goodies and they have been making my meals a lot tastier and interesting.

Sunday I met a good friend from high school. I had not seen her in a long time and it was great to catch up. You know it is a good friendship when you can pick up right where you left off. We met at the halfway point in LaGrange. I live in Louisville, she lives in Carrollton so this was perfect. We met at One Nineteen West for dinner. I had pepperocini peppers stuffed with pimento cheese(!) and deep fried. They came with the best hot pepper jelly. I also got a salad with fixings and bleu cheese dressing that had chunks of cheese in it-very tasty. To finish it off I had a slice of banana toffee pie and a bite of bourbon chocolate brownie. It was so good to see Kristin and I cannot wait for her wedding in October!

Perfect Eggs Tuesday, Jun 5 2012 

Food from today was all about the goods from the farmer’s market.

I set my alarm this morning and went for a walk with my mom at the track a few miles from our house.

First, my caffeine

While walking we saw bunnies (which you can barely see in the photo)

The side for lunch was all local including the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, kale, onion, and beets.

Dinner involved the perfect eggs-my method is:
1) use real and quality butter in the pan

2) use local eggs

3) cook over low heat for a longer period of time-make sure eggs don’t get too dry

Besides eggs I also had more things from the farmer’s market: gnocchi with sweet onion condiment and raspberries
