Last night we had the pleasure of visiting farmers we met through the Boulder Farmers Market at their farm nearby. They don’t have a website, but they raise lamb and goat, all pastured for the most part (goat not so much). We ended up staying for almost 2.5 – 3 hours. While we were there we saw their produce operation which encompassed grapes and veggies, as well as the livestock program. But I digress… In short, this got us home around 8pm which means we had to whip something quick to not be eating at 9:30 at night. I decided to head to an old favorite of mine which is full of flavor but quick and easy. Pasta with bacon and eggs— the goal is to create a nice sauce with the help of some reserved water from cooking, as well as the sunny-side-up egg on top. Combined in the dish with some bacon, you get a nice rich sauce and a salty punch from the bacon.
Kate took on the cocktail duties and decided to use some Spicebox Canadian Whiskey and some of the great Calvados apple brandy, in keeping with the fall theme, to create what we called “The Bitter Apple”.
