Breakfast at the Farmer’s Market

Six days a week I have a wholesome breakfast of food entirely from the farm.

I don’t have an appetite until I’ve been awake a while, so on Saturdays we leave for the market before I’ve eaten.  I have an enjoyable breakfast there, but it’s certainly not the kind of diet I recommend for every day.

Yesterday I started with a fried sweet potato pie from the Malones.

I’m annoyed that this isn’t in focus.  I hadn’t had my coffee yet.

I didn't remember to take the picture until after I'd already started eating.

And I washed it all down with a large cup of freshly ground and brewed Ethiopian coffee from Sam and Mina.

I usually only drink one cup of coffee in the morning.  But on Saturdays I have one at home, then one for the road, then a cup of their coffee at the market.

Starting every day with a fried sweet potato pie, a cinnamon bun and 3 cups of coffee would not be a good idea.  But I don’t think it will hurt me much to do it once a week.

This morning I’ll return to eggs, potatoes, cantaloupe, and a single cup of coffee.

But come next Saturday it will be another Farmers Market breakfast for me.
