Egg-y Goodness....

I'm undecided...... Do I like them best first thing in the morning when Miss Connie collects them and they're still warm as I sort them from their bucket......
Or......... Do I like them best all mashed up and lathered between thick slices of homemade bread with a generous helping of homegrown lettuce and homemade mayo?????
It's a tough one, what do you think?????
Here's how I like to make my egg mash : : a dozen eggs boiled rapidly for about 5 mins, cooled slightly, peeled and then placed in a LARGE bowl (this large bowl is important so that you can get a good swing of the arm happening when the mashing process starts). Add a big tablespoon of softened butter, a large pinch of freshly ground black pepper, an equally large pinch of salt and a big dollop of mayo (I like to make my own)..... Mash this egg mixture with all your might, really get those arms a swinging, until they resemble scrambled eggs..... Enjoy!!!!!
Hugs............................... Jodie.....

  1. I love egg and lettuce sandwiches but I dont have the mayo. My dad used to have chooks when we were kids and we used to love to go and collect them and cook them up. I used to like how bright yellow the yolks were, must have been all the vegie scraps and snails we used to feed them!

  12. Oh add curry into the egg and there will be none left here. I must say that I love the warmth of a warm egg in my hand. Wish I had chickens - one day.

  16. Egg Salad.... I'm thinking yep that's for me.... unless it's maybe a fried egg sandwich... then it's a parden the pun.... a toss-up!
    When my son was little about 4 or 5 he went to gramma's and helped collect the eggs.... she asked him how come he didn't pick up the brown eggs? He said, gramma, those aren't ripe yet! LoL... yes, he is now 32... we still tease him sometimes about that!
