Eggs, eggs, everywhere

The farm I usually go to for eggs is only opened regularly in the summer, so I've been without eggs for a while since I don't want to buy conventional eggs. I'll buy organic when I can. Anyway, I got a hold of the owner and he was there on Saturday, so we went to get eggs.

And boy, did he have eggs, he's got enough eggs there to feed the entire area. So I bought 6 dozen eggs, 2 dozen went to mom, and I plan on doing a lot more baking and eating eggs. I did do some baking this weekend; made pineapple coconut muffins, bumblebee cookies, and butterhorns. That only used up less than a dozen eggs. But at $2.50 a dozen, how could I refuse getting so many? And they've still got dirt and poop on them!

I have just now viewed the pictures from your trip. They are absolutely beautiful. The only way some people (me and my family) will ever see sights like that is through someone else's eyes. Thank you for the lovely journey. I have but one question: Was their pretty music playing in the egyptian markets? I thought I could hear it just by looking.

Hi Rosie,

I'm glad you enjoyed the pictures. Hopefully that won't be the only way you get to see places like that because the pictures only tell part of the story, you have to experience the sights and sounds and people for yourself to really enjoy it. To answer your question though about the music. I believe there was music, but you could only hear it early in the day when there were less people, by midday, there were so many people in there, you couldn't even hear yourself think, let alone anything else. Plus, you end up trying to tune out all the people trying to sell you everything under the sun. ;-)

I'll post the recipe as a separate blog, so it'll be easier for you.

Thanks for the recipe. I'll bet your trip was just magickal. My parents go to Nicaragua and Africa on mission trips and they say the people at the markets will almost run you down to sell you their goods. My boss once went to AFrica and had a child come up to him adn ask for money. He gave the child a one dollar bill. MISTAKE. Scores of children were to follow adn found himself surrounded by children wanting money. He managed to get away but only after giving all of his cash away!

You're very welcome for the recipe. I'll try and post more interesting food related things, but that will probably happen more after I visit my sister since my b-i-l is the most fabulous cook. That's wonderful that your parents go help out in those countries, I wish I could be less selfish and go to foreign lands to help others rather than just satisfy my own desires to see other lands.

OK, hate to brag about our eggs (ahem), but we've got 6 dozen in our fridge right now. 8) We get an average of 5 a day these days. Can hardly keep up. Offered some to L&I and a dozen to someone I met on CafeMom, but she hadn't replied yet.

I'm terribly jealous, but that's the problem with being a city/suburb dweller.
