A Local Challenge Breakfast
During the Eat Local Challenge, there have been ups and downs. Breakfast has been hard for me. I love eggs… until I’ve eaten them more than twice in a week. Suddenly their pretty brown shells fill me with utter revulsion, and the thought of a once enjoyable scrambler is as appealing as eating slimy mushrooms. Yikes. Since I haven’t found any local oats yet, oatmeal is out of the picture, and I don’t really feel satisfied after toast… What’s a gal to do?
Today I went with a fruity breakfast and it was DELIGHTFUL. I sliced the pears last night before bed, arranged them in the pan and plopped raspberries on early this morning. Throwing the whole thing in the oven I crawled back under the covers until the timer went off. The result? Delicious, 100% local pear and raspberry bake. No additional sugars or seasoning necessary – it was perfect all on its own. And warm, which feels comforting and right on these mornings where thick fuzzy robes are suddenly necessary.
Any breakfast tips/tricks from you? Once I get flour, pancakes and muffins, here I come!
