We get our eggs from our neighbor, Pete, who gets them from a guy he works with. We usually order 4-6 dozen. The last time Larry ordered he got 8 dozen!! That was crazy since our household was going down in number, not going up or even staying the same! But since they are so fresh they last quite a while! This is how I keep the eggs in our refrigerator. They are easy to grab and it looks pretty! See that one white egg? We had run out of farm fresh eggs and so we bought eggs from the store and that one last white egg just cannot make the cut for anyone's meal. This picture was actually taken last week... and it is still in there tonight! The fresh eggs are just SO much better! Larry says they are meaty. (For some reason I find that funny!) They just have such a rich flavor that the store eggs do not have. A favorite lunch for me is poached eggs on toast generously sprinkled with pepper. Reminds me of my Daddy. How do you like your eggs? Do you buy them from the store or farm fresh? I guess it may be a good thing that Larry ordered so many, because with this bitterly cold weather the hens (or is it chickens) probably aren't laying.
It is Monday, so I start a new week of menus. I am still adjusting to different schedules. I am going to have to go with more of a definite plan I think... at least every other day. I cannot go days just picking. I thought I could. Well, I guess I can if I am picking a nice pork chop or steak!
Here is the plan right now for the week:
Roasted Smoked Sausage, Red Potatoes, Red Onions and Green Peppers
Deer Burger in Macaroni and Cheese
Pork Chops in the Crock Pot
Chicken Parmesan and Linguine
I am so excited!! I will be starting my menu plans for the end of the month soon, because my Oklahoma family will be coming! And they have few things they like to have when they are home and I like to have something new! I am sure I mentioned it before, but I love cooking for my family!
They enjoy what I cook and they tell me so!
