Eggs – Ceptional!

I got a call yesterday afternoon at work from Mr. Squash. He said he had solved the dilemma of what to have for dinner. One of his co-workers, Pete J., had given him a dozen and a half eggs from his chickens! Look how beautiful they are! Don’t you love the wonderful colors!


We had some Cougar Gold Cheese that wasn’t getting used, so I decided to make mushroom, cheese and onion omelets! Now that was a great dinner and a wonderful way to start the weekend! Thanks, Pete!

This afternoon we have to be away for a public open house. I told the realtor to call us in case she gets an offer and wants us to stay away longer than planned! How's that for a positive attitude!

Oh, I love fresh eggs! A friend of mine has a flock of chckens and sells her eggs during the laying months. She knows I'm good for 2-3 dozen at a time. Nothing like the taste of a fresh egg!

Hope you get good news soon--like today!

I remember when we had our public open house...we kept driving by the house to see if there were any people there. We got so irritated when we kept seeing out neighbors go in. LOL... Oh gosh, there's nothing better than breakfast for dinner! Sounds yummy.

Those eggs are beautiful! Near my home there is an organic farm that is owned by the town. It has taught organic gardening for 25 years. I buy eggs there sometimes. They have some chickens that lay pastel blue eggs! They look like pale Easter eggs. However, they taste like eggs...not chocolate! :>)

Hmmmmm. I'll be there for breakfast. If I leave now, I should be there by Friday. Think you'll have any of those wonderful eggs left?

Hope you received positive news about your house.

Those eggs are very pretty. Do you know why chickens lay different colored eggs? I don't know, just curious.
Hope you have good news.

The colors of the eggs are so cool. Wouldn't those colors go great in a quilt - very warm and NATURAL!
