My favorite meal of any weekend day is breakfast. There's nothing quite like the taste of a warm, runny egg yolk or a maple syrup drenched piece of whole grain pancake. Of course, I often forget that eggs, bacon, sausage, grapefruit, orange juice, waffles, pancakes and the like aren't solely breakfast foods and it's rare that I really take the time to eat a nice breakfast.
So, as was customary in my home as a child, I sometimes have breakfast for dinner. And not just any breakfast, but a locally-grown/raised and organic breakfast. J and I had breakfast for lunch the other day and here's what we made:
- Whole grain blueberry pancakes-locally made pancake mix and local, organic blueberries and local syrup
- Over-medium fried eggs-local, free-range eggs
- Maple sausage-local, "all natural" sausages
Miss Emily, who has proven to love tasty human snacks such as Smartfood popcorn, took a peculiar interest in J's sausage links. As a test, we fed her a tiny piece and she just wouldn't leave us alone afterward! She was so persistent that J finally gave in and offered her an entire link.
She was a rabid little thing...
Overall, Emily gives this meal a 7 out of 10. While it could be healthier, it's local farm friendly and tastes great!
