Breakfast of Champions

J and I discovered a Hampton Roads gem on Sunday: the Country Butcher Shop & Deli (http://countrybutchershopanddeli.com/index.html). These guys are so welcoming and happy to chat with you about their meat all day. The beef is grass-fed, grain-finished and the pork is free-range. They have farm fresh eggs available and a freezer full of exotic meat selections including kangaroo and ostrich! Looking for duck fat? This is the place to get it. I was akin to a kid in a candy store.
This morning's breakfast was a quick fry up of "Johnny Earl's HOT sage sausage" from CBSD and a couple organic eggs. It was so yummy, the difference in meat quality is undeniable. I feel great, quite fueled up for the day until lunch roles around. A trip back to these guys is a must. Fun fact: CBSD is featured on Food Inc.

My next meatsploration will be to Full Quiver Farm (http://www.fullquiverfarm.com/) Check out their "Natural Farming" page if you're still unconvinced that how your meat is raised doesn't matter.


  1. The sausage mild or hot was fantastic. Made sausage and eggs, spiced sausage with sauteed peppers, mushrooms and onions (awesome, I say so myself) and today sausage, organic colby-jack cheese and a homemade avocado mayo. Highly reccomend this boucherie,

  2. Your spiced sausage was brilliant for sure!
