What's summer in California like? Let me see ... oh yeah, it's about feasting on fresh-picked figs, juicy peaches and the sweetest tomatoes. A simple and yet glorious breakfast in the great outdoors.
These figs were plucked at their perfect ripeness just that morning. They're not something I grew up eating, but have happily added to my favorite things over the past decade.
And the rest of our farmer's market finds — including a hearty and wholesome bread (the loaf must've weighed 5 pounds) from a local bakery — made this a meal to remember.
