Blue Eggs for Easter (or Breakfast!)

by

Even though April Fool’s Day is right around the corner, I’m totally not joking about the blue eggs. Don’t get me wrong…I love to dye eggs, but these darlings are naturally beautiful. They came from the Real Food farmer’s market, which raises funds for the Alabama Waldorf School, located in Crestwood at the old Comer Elementary School.

Since it’s early in the growing season, the selection is modest, but it’s a fun tease for the upcoming summer bounty. Don’t go expecting Pepper Place…this is small scale, but just as friendly, and just as delicious. Last week I got those beautiful eggs, as well as some lovely fresh crimini mushrooms, which inspired my first omelet (pictured above). Mushrooms for breakfast? Delicious, I tell you. That’s the fun of a farmer’s market– however big or small–they inspire  you to cook with ingredients in new and fun ways.

If you live in the area, try to stop by on Thursday. They have pretty specific hours, so take note: 8 a.m.–9 a.m.; noon–1 p.m.; and 2:30–3:30 p.m. It’s the building on the far left of the complex; go in the main door and take your first right to find the goods. For you GPSers, here’s the address: 1220 50th Street South.

Here’s the Price List for tomorrow:

By the pound:
Yukon Gold Potato   $0.50 USA
Sweet Potato    $1.00 Alabama
Portabello Mushroom   $5.50 USA
Red Onion     $1.00 USA
Broccoli Crown    $2.00 USA

By the unit:
Fuji Apple     $0.75 USA
Orange      $0.25 California
Strawberry 1 lb. container  $2.75 Florida
Dozen Free-Range Eggs  $3.00 Moody
Alabama Honey 2 lb.  $10.00 Odenville

Happy April Fool’s Day…get in the Kitchen and make some Mischief! 😉

    Hey There –

    Thank you so much for featuring us this week on your blog, Josh!! Just wanted to let everyone know that they can get on our email blast list by sending me a note to realfood@bham.rr.com. I send out the price list on Wednesday mornings, and then folks can pre-order by Wednesday evening, and I can total and bag their goodies for them. That way, I can make sure to have enough for everyone!

    Michelle, we’re just there on Thursdays, but if you want to pre-order and you’re in the Crestwood area, I can drop it off to you Thursday evening or Friday.
