Eating Local

The local market is promoting an "Eat Local" month now that the local farmers and growers are harvesting produce and other items. Since tonight's meal was already planned tomorrow will be the all local meal here.

Of the local items now available in the store the one that immediately caught my eye was pheasant eggs. For $2 four of them came home with me. They are local, free range and fed an organic feed. Still working on the meal but it will include a local chicken, locally harvested asparagus, local lettuces for the salad and local strawberries for dessert. The wine will be local also.

The four eggs are pictured above surrounding a chicken egg for contrast.
