OLS 2009: Week 1 - Getting Things Started

One Local SummerIt's that time again. Come on, you know what time...One Local Summer time! For my first week, I did as all busy, uncreative local eaters will do. I pulled out the eggs and made an omelet. In fact, if you're a regular reader here, you may recognize this recipe because I posted about a very similar meal during last year's OLS Challenge.

I started with fresh ingredients from the farmers' market: eggs, asparagus, spring onions, and garlic.







I chopped everything up and sauteed the asparagus, garlic and onions (reserving most of the greens).







While that was cooking I whipped the eggs with a dollop of milk, a handful of the onion greens and a little salt and pepper. Then I poured it into a small heated skillet and cooked until firm.





I served the omelet "stuffed" with the asparagus saute and sprinkled with a bit more chopped onion greens.

I hope you're all enjoying the harvests of your local farms, too!

Not boring at all - often times the basics are the best and the best way to let the ingredients shine, in my mind. Aren't the asparagus delicious this time of year?

Mommy K - You're right about that. I am always so happy to have the farmer's market start up so that I can get fresh eggs again. It's the only time of year that I really look forward to eggs for breakfast (lunch and dinner, too).

Makita - Thanks for stopping by. Hope you enjoy your own fresh egg omelet soon!

livinglocalzone - Asparagus is my favorite thing about spring. I wait for it all year and it's just not as good after the first few weeks...Thanks for your comment!
