Breakfast confession:

I don’t like “fresh” chicken eggs.  I like chicken eggs that come from Costco.  “Fresh” chicken eggs taste…well…fresh.   In fact I only like them in baking, which is why we have LOTS of fresh chicken eggs staring at me every morning when I eat a big bowl of Frosted Flakes instead of eggs.

Mexico 2 07 014

So now you know, because I’m sure you cared..(NOT).   Unfortunately I don’t have anything else to write about and only this picture of eggs on my memory card to share.  No sewing or stitching or fabric or even my own kid….just eggs. 

(the egg holder & towel came from here.)

P.S. this might win as the lamest post I’ve ever written. :)  Except maybe this post where I made the ugliest shirt known to man. 

Pin It!

Eek! I guess maybe I've never had a fresh egg, just now learning that there is a difference (and that Costco eggs aren't fresh). Love the egg holder though!

I am the opposite. Fresh Chicken eggs for scrambling (super YUM!). If my chickens happen to stop laying and I buy "store" eggs, they only go in things I am baking, never scrambled.

I have my own chickens and I love fresh eggs. What is really gross is making scrambled eggs with store bought eggs and seeing how pale the yolks are compared to eggs laid by free-range happy chickens.

My sister is the same as you, though. I think modern americans are not used to the real taste of fresh food any more since so many things are so processed and shipped thousands of miles before they reach the store.

That shirt is not that bad, either. I like the pattern, though maybe the color isn't the greatest on you. It's kind of retro.

To add to the guilt of the frosted flakes, think of how many of us city folks are just jealous you have fresh chicken eggs! (Don't worry I would probably choose the frosted flakes too though).

I've never had fresh eggs so I can't weigh in... but I do want that egg holder! Hehe

Keriann said...

Hmm I have to say I'm not sure that I've ever tasted "fresh eggs" so I can't really make an educated response but I will say I do like my costco eggs!!

Keriann said...

Oh an Frosted Flakes....MY FAVORITE!!! (ok 2nd fav. Fruit Loops are my "secret Fav")

I have farmer friends who say the same thing. That you can taste the chicken in the egg when you're that close to the source.
Linked to you yesterday (and used your photo). Thanks again for permission!

Oops- should leave the link, since apparently my "blogger profile" doesn't link to my blog. Weird.

oh - I wish I lived closer; I'd be thrilled to take those lovely eggs off your hands!

Karen said...

I eat fresh chicken eggs daily, and aside from the color quality of the yolks, never thought they *tasted* any differently than store bought. But my city friends LOVE to visit and eat them....

Maybe you should mask the egg with lots of veggies and/or cheese so you can get used to them!

My husbands uncle is a farmer in Idaho. He prefers potato pearls to regular potatos.

Linda said...

You are SO funny! My Amish neighbors have a dairy farm. The wife buys her milk at Wal-mart. To each his/her own... I can go with my neighbor's fresh brown eggs unless I see something floating in them. Then, thanks but no...

mendi_brown said...

I dont eat fresh egss either... well actually I dont eat eggs period. The last egg I attempted to eat came right from the chicken coop. I cracked my little egg in the bowl and baby chick fell out... sick I know, but it has scarred me for life.

why not sew? said...

The only thing I really don't like about fresh eggs is they are really hard to peel when they are hard boiled. Our yolks are always rich and beautiful colored and I love that. Whenever I have a surplus of eggs I make an angel food cake. They are so good homemade! P.S. I liked your ugly shirt post. I have that fabric and I didn't like it much after I worked with it. It looked good on the bolt. Oh Well:)

Bonnie said...

The egg holder is adorable. I've never seen anything like it. See, your "lame" post got me to comment and I usually just lurk.

Miss Sews-it-all said...

Wow...I've never even tasted a "fresh" egg before! Too funny! Love that egg holder, is it vintage?

Carla said...

This post is hilarious!
The egg laying here was about down to nil, so I purchased some from our local store. Found some that were from free ranging hens, so I was happy. I'm not sure I can actually taste any difference between purchased/home grown, but the eggs do look different. The biggest point of this is the treatment of the chickens; I feel awful at supporting the regular chicken industry. yech
I notice you've a blue egg!
And I love your quilts...

Jen said...

I like this post even though it's not your usual fabulous sewing stuffs.

Jo's Place said...

LOL you would have really grossed out this morning, I know I did a little bit. Went to feed the chooks and picked up an egg that was hot. So I guess it was fresh out of the chicken, ewwww. Will still eat it :)

Crystal Hendrix said...

Ummm chocolate chip cookies sound AWESOME!!

Char said...

Oh my goodness we love fresh eggs, we travel a few miles from our house just to get fresh eggs. You are right, they do taste different.

randi said...

Haha! It took me some time to get used to fresh, but now I like them. Which is great since I have lots of friends with chickens.

The thing I will NOT taste is fresh milk. It seems like it would taste cow-y. Ya know?

rubberduckie said...

From the color of your eggs it looks like we have the same kind of chickens:] The difference in the taste of the eggs probably isn't so much from them being fresh but because of the chickens diet - you have happy, free-range chickens. Just leave the eggs in the fridge for a month or so and they won't be fresh anymore - then you can eat them...haha

Jessica said...

I'm the same way. I can't stand how my mom's chicken eggs always make for neon yellow breakfasts. I just can't take it. So awful, but so true.

Tanya and Colin said...

My husband would be so jealous; he loves fresh eggs!

Carol said...

I think I'm getting to citified too, because I don't like fresh eggs. I think it's because I'm not use to the yellowness of the yolks. So, I agree with you! I loved your post and your egg picture is great! Stop by and visit me sometime!

Because I just love your blog, I nominated it for an award on mine! :)

The Calico Cat said...

As for my son & I we like all kinds of eggs. last night we has shiitake fritatta - he is 13.5 months old & loved every bite! No idea about freshness - although you can test it by floating an egg in water. I don't remember though, is it the floater that is fresh or the sinker?

Awesome egg holder and towel!!

Rannyjean said...

I don't like them because of the occassional 'spots,' you get...yuck, gross, gag and I am all the way with you. Will bake with them, but I can't eat them! Love this post!
