szwv The Barbara Fritchie House sold for 200k at public auction this morning on the court house steps. I hope whoever bought it will be taking good care of this Frederick (rebuilt) landmark! As the poem goes: "...She leaned far out on the window-sill, And shook it forth with a royal will. "Shoot, if you must, this old gray head,
But spare your country’s flag,” she said.

A shade of sadness, a blush of shame,
Over the face of the leader came;

The nobler nature within him stirred

To life at that woman’s deed and word: "Who touches a hair of yon gray head
Dies like a dog! March on!” he said..."
-John Greenleaf Whittier

szwv My favorite Fritatta yet! 🏼️ Killing this whole @airbnb hosting thing! Local Eggs, crispy bacon, orange cherry tomatoes, basil, goat cheese, dash of oat milk, tbsp bread flour, thyme, red onion, & shallots. Lotsa freshly ground black pepper & a pinch of pink Himalayan sea salt.

Sauté it all (except the eggs, milk, flour), then pour the egg mixture over top & continue to cook on stovetop until edges start to set. Then bake at 375* for 8 mins (or when set throughout) Top w/ extra cheese as desired. #fritatta #downtownfrederick #airbnb #organicfood #eatlocal #liveauthentic #frederickmd #sundaymorning #localbounty #slowfood #cookingwithSam #Mankind
