Post-hurricane weather in Charlottesville produced the most beautiful day this summer (in my humble opinion). Sunny and bright with slight breezes to cool you down. We spent the day around town appreciating the little things that we don’t get to do year round (like Sunday brunch!). Inspired by brunch at Brookville Restaurant, I wanted to remake their steak and eggs with my own ingredients for dinner. Using all local ingredients, this was my result! Fried farm eggs over forest-fed ground pork sauté topped with asian hot sauce (side of broccoli for my daily dose of veggies).
One of the foods I really missed while on the Whole30 were my all-time favorite primal almond banana pancakes. Since I’m very well-stocked on blueberries right now, I figured “why not have some almond banana blueberry pancakes for brunch?” Mmmm. They were especially good after a short but hilly run around Charlottesville in the morning humidity. They were also a good opportunity to test out my new 35mm lens (I think I’m in love)!
