Egg-cellent.

A lovely surprise awaited me, when Josh's co-worker, Rob, called me during my shift on Sunday.

Eggs!

Another lady that Josh works with has a farm, and chicken, and farm fresh eggs.

I could not believe my luck. When I opened the cartons the next day, several different colors stared back at me. It was kaleidoscope of wonderfully, delicious eggs.

The yokes were an extra vibrant shade of yellow. I even got Josh to agree that there was a taste difference.

In Real Food, What to eat and Why, Nina Planck boasts that eggs from chickens that are allowed to roam free and eat insects have more Omega 3 fatty acids, among other things. Isn't that amazing? (This is a really great book, by the way.)

I heart Eggs.

Therefore, I am in heaven. Absolute heaven.

P.S. Thank you Rob!

And Thank you Steffy. I am glad that I was able to put your Easter present chicken to good use. I miss our conversations terribly.

I loved this post so much. It is hands down one of the most clever posts that I've seen for such a long time.

I grew up on the farm, and there is nothing more exciting than getting eggs. It really is like Easter when you collect them. I remember last year my grandmother sent me two dozen eggs from her farm, and she was so pleased because there was a green egg in it!

Thank you for this post. And...they do taste better.
