Sunday Brunch

This morning we had a lovely quiche and fresh-picked salad out in the garden. The quiche made use of some of the last eggs produced in our yard, as well as homegrown green onions. We added some store-brought prosciutto, cheddar and green beans and Farmer's Market oyster mushrooms. Mmmmm. The salad was composed of homegrown lettuce, arugula, sorrel, and baby kale.

By the way, if you don't already grow it, sorrel is a tasty perennial green. Ours came with the house and has put up with a lot of abuse as it's in a spot that doesn't get watered frequently. Still, it thrives. It's got a tangy zing to it and adds a lot of dimension to salads. I've read that it can be used in soups, and I can't wait to try it that way!
