Call me a glutton, but on Sunday I was THIS close to heading down to the brooklyn flea market AGAIN, this time with my friend, Anzela, because she hadn't tasted this season's flea market bounty yet. But plans changed partly due to the weather-it's so stinking humid right now. So what did we do instead? We pillaged Anzela's green (farmer's) market goodies! And the star of the show? Organic eggs laid by grass fed chickens! Seriously, I've never seen egg yolk so orange, creamy, and flowing with abundance. Simply said, it was AMAZING! I know I tend to hype up things a lot, but you really need to try it for yourself. We were in food heaven. And our meal was so simple.
After brunch we hardly rested. We ate AGAIN. haha. See photos below.
Look how the eggs are all different colors. I know the store-bought eggs I get from around the corner don't look like this.
We ate our eggs with toasted challah bread with butter, from Amy's Bread. It has a sweet edge to it.
Topped with a tomato and sprinkled with some pink himalayan salt = crazy delicious!
We also added some freshly grated parm.
Look how it oozes! Do your eggs do that?!?
It flows like a river. haha
Oh, we also had some homemade blueberry pancakes made with the same eggs.
Looks like a piece of art, huh?
For dinner we had lots of appetizers, courtesy of my very own cheesemonger (mi hombre), and pesto pasta (not pictured).
Have you ever paired spanish figs with fromager d'Affinois cheese?!? It's a super creamy cheese and it's SOOOOO GOOD!!!!! I promise you'll love it. =) We got this from Murray's.
Genoa salami with piave cheese.
The chef herself, hard at work. Thanks for the wonderful food, Anz!!!! Does the background look familiar? It was featured in my youtube video for cupcake wars. In case you're wondering, I didn't make the show. =(
My favorites. =)
