Last weekend we played Symphonie Fantastique for our final PSO concert of the season. To save myself from driving back and forth on Friday AND Saturday (2+ hours on the highway each way), I was staying with friends who not only live relatively close to the concert hall but they also live about 5 minutes’ drive away from a farm where they barter/trade all of their vegetable compost in return for free-run organic chicken eggs.
Each morning, K makes “breakfast of champions” for herself and anyone who would like to join her. She stir-fries onions, red pepper and spinach, and then adds a fried farm-fresh egg.
It. Is. Delicious.
After our breakfast of champions, K and I went to the farm to pick some of the last of the Swiss Chard in the winter garden that is covered by a cloth roof – the farmer has told K to help herself; he is too busy with outdoor planting to take any of it right now.
When I got home, I couldn’t stop raving about the Breakfast of Champions. On Monday morning (a day off at last!), T made me his version of Breakfast of Champions. Wheeee! I wonder if K will start adding Hollandaise Sauce, ham, and bacon to her Breakfast of Champions now….
Spring has FINALLY sprung here! We have chives in the garden! Yesterday, I transplanted Swiss Chard seedlings into large pots behind the garage – the only part of our garden that gets sun.
I hope the chard starts growing quickly so we can have Breakfast of Champions again!
