Organic Vegetable and Cheese Omelette with edible flowers. A summer treat for brunch made with fresh organic kale, thyme, marjoram, nasturtiums and borage flowers from my garden. Bunching onions & yellow summer squash from my organic CSA, the Brookfield Farm; grass raised organic eggs and goat feta from the Amherst Farmers Market, and from my birthday lunch yesterday from my daughter, Michelle and our local coop, some incredible goat cheese from Vermont. All these ingredients plus lots of love and slow cooking take this over the top. Savor and enjoy every delicious bite!
