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.
