Day 079 LocalrootZ Project (March 20, 2010)

Swallowtail Plain Yogurt
w/ Honey

I started the morning up early as usual...with a hunger in my stomach and hours till Cassi would rise for our traditional walk to the farmers market and after we would eat brunch.  I scooped a cup of Swallowtails plain and creamy yogurt and then folded in a tbs of honey.  This combination never gets old... I mean as you see I eat it almost everyday.  You begin tasting the nuances of one farm from teh next... when the animals are pastured heavier and clover is sprouting in the pasture  the flavor changes.  So far I think my top three yogurts would be Swallowtail Farm, Townhouse Farms Ewegurt and Smiths Farm.  The cream on the top rich jersey cow flavor gets me everytime !
Anyhow like clockwork Cassi rolled out of bed and off we went to the Winter Farmers Market...
this is what we snagged this week !

with a bag full of great food and a beautiful day we were off on foot, back to our west end hideaway.  Upon returning we assessed our stock of food and Cassi suggested something with the lobster tails and hollandaise sauce for brunch... OK that was easy to talk me into ! I was off into the kitchen....
