Dark Days Update #15: Eggs, Kielbasa, & Hash

Monday night Gail decided to revisit breakfast for dinner for our most recent Dark Days meal. Fried eggs with cheese and an absolutely awesome homemade hash! I carnivore'd mine up by adding a really great pan fried polish-style kielbasa.
The hash was awesome, so good that I told Gail it is better then a hash you would get in most restaurants, and it was incredibly simple. Diced potatoes, garlic, and onion, cayenne pepper, black pepper, kosher salt.. Gail stir-fried the mixture in about 2T of olive oil in a wok. When it was done I tossed my portion with kielbasa and black pepper.
A hearty and simple breakfast for dinner!
Local Ingredients in the Fried Eggs & Hash: Eggs (Jane's Backyard Chicken's), Cheese (West River Creamery), Potato (City Feed & Supply), Onion & Garlic (Red Fire Farm) Kielbasa (Pete & Jen's Backyard Birds & Farmyard).
As of this writing we are 1 month away from the end of the challenge. The Dark Days are almost over!! In the last 15 weeks I've written up 15 meals which focused on Sustainable, Local, Organic, and Ethical ingredients. We ate many more local meals then that though. Throughout this challenge many of my meals have included at least a few local ingredients in addition to the non-local ones. Many conventional and staple items in my diet were supplemented with great local produce, sauces, meats, and cheeses.
One more month to go!

Looks good. You've hit on one of the wonderful gifts of the challenge: while you may set out to do one meal a week, you find local ingredients in lots of dishes in the other meals. Next thing you know, it becomes "different" to find non-local ingredients on your plate!
