Yesterday morning was my first Friday morning without a farmer’s market. To celebrate, I did the two things I can’t do during the market season, sleep in and make breakfast.
I woke up at about 8:30, probably never going to sleep in that late again in a while, but still enjoyable on occasion.
The Einkorn mix is special because it’s made with Certified Organic Einkorn whole grain wheat. This variety of wheat is the purest form possible, with extremely low levels of gluten.
I got the whole wheat flax because I’m a pretty plain person, but they have other varieties, like chocolate hazelnut, and cinnamon vanilla.
I warmed up the cast iron pan to fry the bacon and mixed the pancake batter. With a click I started my tea kettle, and flipped the flapjacks.
When it finished cooking I sat down at the end of the table. Everything I ate that morning I had purchased at the farmer’s markets, (except the tea).
Chocolate chip pancakes, hickory smoked bacon, and a warm cup of tea. Perfect breakfast for the perfect morning. I even drank the tea out of my “Support Your Local Coffee Shop” mug. It’s cool to think that I was eating a similar breakfast prepared by the American Pioneers, I even used cast iron!
I got the pancake mix from whEat Better, and the bacon from Jake’s Country Meats. If you want to see what they offer feel free to take a look at their sites http://wheatbetter.com/ and http://www.jakescountrymeats.com/ (They didn’t pay me to write this article, but both are good friends).
What was neat about the whole meal was that each product I ate had been raised or made by people I knew. That’s the amazing thing about the farmer’s markets, and added to the satisfaction of the flavor.
