Our Culinary Expedition to Rita's

Dinner at James & Rita's is anything but average.  Rita puts everything she's got into her culinary creations and I just had to document it all on film!  I am hoping she is going to add her comments to this blog so we all know what and how she made it all look and taste so incredibly delightful.  In addition to a simple fresh salad, I have never tasted sweet young cauliflower so flavorful, potatoes so delicately cheesy, bok choy chicken so tenderly appointed, and a fruit dessert so sprite. Gracious hosts and hostesses take note!


Breakfast at The Levy's

We are on an egg kick lately and any vegetable that can be roasted is fair game for our breakfast plate.  I roasted okra one day and served it as a side. The eggs were scrambled with some roasted onions. The next day I chunked up the leftover okra and scrambled it with eggs.

For this morning's breakfast, I scrambled some wonderful roasted white lady turnips into eggs and topped it all with chives.

No doubt you've noticed that we are also on a tomato kick.  We will enjoy them as long as they are available! Sliced in slabs, adorned with cottage cheese, drizzled with a little EVOO, salt and pepper. Tomatoes and cottage cheese add a nice complement to scrambled eggs.   Most everything you see on the plate on the plate was purchased through our online Market at StPete.LocallyGrown.Net!
