I Love Eggs

I am not talking about the chocolate ones we have just eaten over Easter. OH is in the doghouse over this as Sunday afternoon I thought i would sit down with my egg and a cup of tea but my egg had disappeared!  As i've been dieting OH thought he would save me the calories and ate it, i was not impressed!!

He has been working for a couple of ladies these past two weeks who have generously kept us supplied in real eggs, both duck and chicken. 

We go through a lot of eggs usually two dozen a week and I always try to buy them from people who have their own free range chickens.  They vary in price round here, usually from £2.60 - £3.20 a dozen but there is no comparison between these fresh and those brought in a supermarket.  The yolks are so bright yellow and its nice to know they were laid that day.

I have eggs most days for breakfast, i don't eat cereals except very occasionally porridge.  I love them cooked in various ways but i am partial to boiled egg with marmite soldiers!  I do not use the duck eggs for this as they have a stronger taste as well as being larger so they are better for baking and i made a lovely quiche with those pictured above.

  1. Oh no! If anyone took my chocolate there would be HUGE trouble. We like fresh free range eggs in this house too. There is such a difference. I would love to be able to keep my own chickens. Maybe in the future. X

    1. I dream about having a few of my own some day too x
