Summer’s bounty local supper

Just a quick post to share last night’s beautiful supper plate with you.

Nearly everything I ate was local, purchased from farmers at either the Rebus Works Saturday Market or Midtowne Farmers Market.

Sweet, sweet blueberries from Bella Blues. A cool succotash salad with butterbeans and corn from Saturday Market vendors I can’t recall (sorry!) and cherry tomatoes — including sun golds, of course — from New Grass Gardens. (Oh, and some maybe-not-so-local roasted pumpkin seeds tossed in for crunch.)

And gorgeous, perfectly (IMHO) soft boiled eggs. (Even the outer shells were beautiful — one a light blue and the other an ecru.) The finishing touch was a sprinkling of black truffle salt from Savory Spice Shop.

Of all the things I’ve embellished with that exquisite salt, eggs are still my favorite.

I’m relishing every morsel of these summertime delights, trying not to think of the end of this bounty with fall’s arrival.

But then again, there there will be apples, root veggies, brussels sprouts, cider, cauliflower, winter squashes …

    Terry,
    You have got to give me a recipe for brussel sprouts! I want to eat them…..but they have NEVER tasted good to me! HELP!

    • I like them lots of ways! The key is eating fresh sprouts — they taste very different from frozen. My go-to way to cook them is halved and roasted in the oven with olive oil, s & p, walnuts. Drizzle over a little balsamic to serve.
