Let me tell you about one of my VERY most favorite things:
diamonds eggs. But not just any eggs, eggs fresh from the farm, laid by happy chicken ladies. Have you ever eaten eggs laid by happy chicken ladies? If you haven’t, just go ahead and accept the hard truth: you are missing out. Did you know that a pale yellow yolk indicates an unhappy chicken & store-bought eggs last saw a live chicken up to 6 weeks before you take them home?? ((ps – if you love Diet Dr. Pepper for breakfast raise your hand…or is it just me??))
BUT – when the ladies are happy, the yolk is a beautiful tangerine color. And the texture and taste…smooth, creamy & rich tasting. The kids love eggs for breakfast and dinner. And what a simple & healthy meal to put together when crunched for time! Toad-in-a-Hole, Bird-in-a-Nest, scrambled, boiled, fried– there has to be a way to prepare an egg that will please even the pickiest of eaters.
My very dear sister friend, Laura, is my egg-spurt supplier. The eggs pictured here are in fact Laura’s eggs! I think they are so pretty, almost as pretty as diamonds! She used to have some beautiful blue eggs and some greenish ones too, but tragedy struck (how sad!!). In an upcoming post, she will give us a glimpse into the world of a happy chicken lady and her chickens –haha I just called her a “chicken lady” !! It’s probably not the first time Laura, and now it likely won’t be the last…((and possibly she will even a tasty egg-related recipe–hint.hint)).
My sweet friends, John Lloyd and Mia, just texted me a delicious egg recipe and I am egg-cited to share it with you (that was not funny at all…sorry). John Lloyd and Mia are newly weds and both are world travelers with an affinity for many cuisines across the globe. I am anticipating more recipes from both Mia and John Lloyd, I will tell you why that will be especially, um – special when I share their next recipe. This recipe sounds SO good – the Siracha is a perfect touch! I also love Sambal chili paste on my eggs, it is sure to awaken even the groggiest peeps.
