I've been shopping for fresh things mostly via Instacart the past year. But I laid hands on a loaf of Heidelberg brand pumpernickel recently, from a supermarket where I used to shop in person. And a pound of butter, which I use rarely enough as to forget to reorder it. The bread is wonderful and usually made of flours from specialty grains grown just up into Quebec.
So my breakfasts of late have featured just coffee w/ milk and heavenly pumpernickel toast slathered with butter.
Eggs, which I do like poached for breakfast sometimes. have landed at lunch lately, usually with a handful of greens wilted onto them as the poaching time ends, and sometimes with a bit of,,,, yes, ham,,,, or salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Anyway I went nuts when someone offered to shop for me off a custom list at my old supermarkets. Landed some organic chicken breasts too, which have been poached and frozen in broth for later reference.
Tonight looks to be a balmy evening, so I'm making some fairly ad hoc gazpacho from doorstepped local tomatoes picked right before the killing frosts of last week.
Love Indian Summer, hope this isn't the last of it, even though we're heading next to another stretch where the overnights will dip at least briefly below freezing. Days though may still offer some good time outdoors. I don't really miss the days of being a kid and being invited to shell a couple bushels of late peas this time of year. I'll cop to liking being able to reach in the freezer and drag out a packet of frozen snap peas.
Poached eggs (yum), poached organic chicken - and its delicious poaching broth - yes, yum....wilted greens, sigh.
And yes, enjoying the last of the locally grown (and wonderfully tasty) tomatoes.
