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.
