If you're not a Californian, you may want to avert your eyes from this post. Before you hate me too much for the fact that there is asparagus -- local, delicious asparagus -- on my plate this week, please know that I completely acknowledge and never, ever take the local bounty of our area for granted .
The last couple weeks have been spectacular in the market here. This is my absolutely favorite turn of season all year. We've seen artichokes, avocados and asparagus come into the market.
Last week after going to the Saturday market, I posted the following status on Facebook:
"Finally unpacking my market bags properly. Avocados, pork tenderloin wrapped in pancetta, radishes of all sorts, brussels, green garlic, goat cheese, red and green cabbages, bloomsdale spinach. It's good to be a San Franciscan."
My eat local meals have been easy, lazy and delicious. I've been eating large bowls of cabbage with sesame dressing -- using this dressing from Pim. And brown rice topped with avocado and greens. And omelettes and scrambled eggs and poached eggs and fried eggs.
My Dark Days meal this week was Sunday breakfast: Roasted potatoes, roasted asparagus, poached eggs, and ham slices. As you can see from the photo taken after my meal, I ate up every last bite of it.
The farms who helped make my dark days meal perfect this week are:
