Your taste is the same as mine. We ate a lot of fish eggs from crappy and bluegill in the spring.

I eat eggs until they are coming out my ears. They say that man can't live by bread alone. I agree but if he has bread for toast and runny egg yokes to mop up then he's apt to live to be a very old man. Oh he needs salt and pepper shakers too. Butter for the toast.....no margarine or other substitute. The only other thing that I can't live without is Coca Cola.

My wife often asks if eggs are ok for supper and she always gets the same answer...."perfect dear"!

Anybody else remember when it was thought that eggs were high in cholesterol and warned about eating to many? Those idjuts! I ate them anyway and am glad that I did.

I lay three slices of buttered toast on my plate, and then cook three eggs, either over easy of sunny side up and slide'em on top of the toast.
That's one of my all time favorite meals.
When I was younger it was six or eight eggs on my toast, a pound of bacon and a quart of cold milk.

recently eggs were .47 cents a dozen at our local Aldies store. That's pretty cheap, eggs are a good food source in lots of ways. Those chickens were working cheap!!

I can't remember the last time that our grocery list didn't include eggs. It's just my wife and I in our house and we often get 4 dozen of the large eggs every Friday night. She burns through one dozen with her baking talents but the rest are eaten with toast and sometimes hash browns. I'm proud to say that my bird dogs Roy and Cora get one egg each every day too and they also get to lick my plate and I don't even care who likes it!

It's no big deal if we run out of catsup, syrup or even bung fodder, just as long as we have eggs, and bread. We once had power out for 6 days during February do to a nasty ice storm. I just opened the damper on the wood stove a bit so the top of the stove could get good and hot and we made toast and eggs the old fashioned way. The neighbors were all in a panic and we were living like kings. I hooked up an inverter to my truck battery and it gave us enough watts so mom could read books and I could reload ammo and clean guns. I kinda felt like Heimo Korth for a few days!

With all of this egg talk I got hungry for eggs. Tonight I fixed omelets for my wife and I. Eggs are great I like egg sandwiches.

An egg has more calcium than a glass of milk. Of course you have to eat the shell, and we have a neighbor who does just that. So does my dog.

Eats the shell ha ah ...so does mine. I have to drop it into his dish so that it breaks or he will screw around with it and break it outside of the dish. Wiping up egg white snot off of the floor isn't fun! He does get most of it. Even dogs are smart enough to know that the yellow is the bestest part!

Poultry based, egg production units. Pretty low maintenance. They spend most of the day out in the yard and put themselves up at night. These hens lay a light blue colored egg. Forget the name. The wife wants to go back to a Brahma hen. Only lost one so far to a predator.
