Hi All! How are we liking the new site? I love it, but I could be biased… Thankfully the first week has gone smoothly, so let’s just keep it up!
I finally made it to the Edmonds Farmer’s Market this last Saturday. I could live there. Yes, at the market. I could live there. I would have everything I would need. Fresh organic produce, wild caught salmon, pasture raised meat, and pastured eggs. There were beautiful flowers, books to read, art to look at and more jewelry I could have ever want. It’s a good thing I missed the gluten-free bakery, or I would have probably eaten myself into a coma. It was such a beautiful day, so we decided to pick up a few things to eat at the market and then have a picnic at the beach. We ate like kings! I was a bad food blogger and didn’t even think to take a picture of our feast. Shame on me. How will you know I ate great food if there’s no picture!?
I think by now, we’re all well aware of my love of pork. Specifically sausage. I have 4 recipes already that contain pork. Funny enough, all my breakfast recipes have ground sausage. It’s no surprise then that my favorite t-shirt is one I got recently from Paleo Parents. Praise the lard, y’all.
Today I bring you my Maple Breakfast Sausage. Perfect balance of sweet and savory. What really makes it is the tasty maple sugar a friend recently brought me from Maine. Her family has a maple farm, and I got lots of maple goodies from her last trip. Friends that bring you maple goodness are great. She gets me.
