“A box without hinges, key, or lid,
Yet golden treasure within is hid.”
Our friend Dr. Carolyne has shared an article about the nutrition value of eggs. Fat? Cholesterol? Pooh. Look at all those vitamins, all that brainy protein. Eat the whole wonderful package, not just the white.
It’s a good thing everyone here likes eggs, because I’m a pusher. I have this idea my kids will do better on tests if they eat eggs in the morning. We go through a minimum of 2 dozen a week — 3 or 4 if there’s a cake baked or a few friends overnight.
Not only are they nutritious and delicious, but they’re beautiful, too. Fellow egg lover Betsy blows them and paints them at Easter and has been known to keep them until they rot because they’re so pretty. Elizabeth made us wrap them in silk, per Martha’s instructions, last Easter. I have so much fun admiring the beauty of Darleen’s eggs — each with its own singular shape, color and size — that I sometimes hate to crack and eat them.
