Yesterday, my friend and neighbor, Jeremy, went out mushroom picking. I felt so grateful when he gave me a heaping helping of these beautiful Chanterells! They are my favorite kind of mushrooms…subtle and rich at once, and so beautiful to behold!
Then, this morning, my organic produce delivery came. Mind you, these vegetables are the most delicious I have ever had! This is week #3, and I couldn’t be happier. I get them from Organics 2 You, here in Portland. Everything is locally grown. The staff is friendly. The company is very personalized and competent. I can’t recommend it highly enough. In addition to their delectable produce, they also offer a few extras, so I ordered some cheese, eggs, coffee and yoghurt this week. It has been a long time since I’ve eaten dairy and since I just ran out of my calcium supplements, I thought I’d eat some. I rarely do that.
This photo doesn’t even begin to show you everything that was in it. There are fresh carrots, more peppers, fruit galore and beets underneath what you see here. I added the chanterelles to the nice bag of shiitaki mushrooms that I got in the delivery, and am trying a new kind of coffee as I type this. Delicous! Received another package of kiwi berries, too, which I really love.
So…..for breakfast this morning, I chopped up both kinds of shrooms, a de-seeded habanero pepper and some Tuscan kale and tossed it very lightly with a little EVOO. (extra virgin olive oil) I cooked that for about a minute and a half, and then added an egg.
I let that cook through for about 20 seconds and then scrambled it together with the vegetables. Then I added some high quality, raw, sharp cheddar cheese….just a little sprinkle, and a tablespoon of my homemade artichoke/pepper bruschetta and stirred that all around and let it cook for another minute or so. Added sea salt…pepper….
Served it up with a cup of hot, black coffee and some riper-than-ripe organic pears with a light dusting of fresh ground cinnamon. I practically inhaled this breakfast! It was one of the best I’d eaten in a long time! Made me feel like dancin’ a little jig!
