The week’s produce…

The week’s protein… (We had to supplement from the grocery store because not all vendors are coming to the market yet.)

On of the vegetable farmers had some duck eggs and gave us two to try.  This will be a first.  I was amazed at the wax-like coating, which makes sense considering duck habitat.  It was so smooth and had this beautiful marbling that my camera refused to capture.  It was translucent in the sun like fine china.  Lovely.

Ps. The chocolate croissant didn’t make it home.
