Farm Fresh Eggs



"Hi Jess, it's me. I have two dozen eggs in my truck for you. Are you going to be home in 5 minutes?"

"Yep, I'm here now, come on over!!"

I am so SO excited!! We will finally be eating fresh farm eggs each week instead of buying eggs from the store.

My friend's two little boys go out and collect the eggs and then get to earn some of the money from the egg sales. What a great way to teach the connection between effort and earning.

Knowing where these eggs come from, that the hens that lay them are happy and well cared for, fed good food, and not forced into eating anti-biotics every day, makes a big difference to me.

I'm not sure what I will make for dinner on this lazy Friday night, but I am fairly certain it will involve these eggs. Likely, I'll try a new bread recipe and simply fry or poach the eggs on the side... vegetables will make an appearance, I'm sure, but these golden beauties will be the star.

This will be amazing.


  1. We sure hope you injoy them as much as we do!


  2. Crystal - I'm certain we will enjoy them just as much as you do! Thanks for sharing them with us!!
