Eating Locally: A Tasty Brunch

It is a holiday weekend. A lazy morning. Late brunch. Using mostly local ingredients. Somewhere we picked up a bottle of locally produced Bloody Mary Mix. VA made. We made Virgin Mary’s. At our age, vodka at 10 am means a nap not long afterwards. This is a spicy thick rich Bloody Mary Mix. Anchovies and clam juice. The sea in a glass.

Besides that, we made our favorite eggs with toast. The eggs. TLV Tree Farm. Bought at the Howard County Market at the hospital. The butter. Trickling Springs, bought at England Acres Farm. The bread, from Roots.

I love making eggs from free range chickens. Look at the yolk on these eggs.

This brunch counts as one of my local meals for our Southern Sole Food Challenge. Ten of us from south of the Mason Dixon Line are cooking a local meal every week and blogging about it. Today for me, it is brunch. Check out what the others make at their sites, listed here.

Do your own local meals. Buy at the Howard County Farmers Markets. Or, at the local farms. Check out my local resources page to see where I buy local good foods.


About AnnieRie

Retired, I am following my dream of living in quiet west Howard County, a rural oasis, not far from the urban chaos, but just far enough. I love to cook, bake, garden, and travel. I volunteer at Howard County Conservancy. I lead nature hikes, manage programs and show children all the wonders of nature, and the agricultural connection to their food.
