Running out of stapes and today's freebie
I used my last egg yesterday morning, not realizing that I didn't have any extra in the bar fridge. I ate the fried egg, while the twins had hard boiled. No bother. Weird thing is that whenever I am out of eggs, I feel like I am out of groceries, yet I am keenly aware that we have plenty on hand still. Silly. As fortune would have it, college boy is once again also "Farm boy" while the small farm family is away, so as a bonus, free eggs are available for the taking, literally. Farm boy is tending to a dog, sheep and 13 chickens. I asked him to bring me any eggs, if possible, otherwise, it would necessitate a trip to the store. He brought me 11 eggs, seen above. Still warm and dirty.
I washed them all with hot water and dish soap, they are now corralled in my egg storage bin of the refrigerator. Talk about fresh, free range eggs! Can't get any better than this. : )
