The Race Is On!!

It's me against ten Rhode Island Red hens......productivity being  the main challenge....the hens are in the lead by about twenty-five eggs!! I haven't been to collect today's eggs yet.., so, that makes it thirty-five eggs and counting.. This morning I baked Jamie Oliver's chili cheese corn cake that uses 4 eggs and cheated a little by giving some scrambled eggs to Minki and Fiela... it hardly made a dent in the stack of eggs on my kitchen table!




Chili cheese corn cake,those chilies sure woke us up this morning!

It was delicious and another first for me...seems like the egg challenge is going to teach me a few new recipes...




I dream off eggs,I Google about recipes for them,they dominate my life at the moment!

Can't be beaten by a couple of hens, for crying out loud!

Thank goodness we are off to another auction tomorrow.

Let me be,  eggs...!

  8. Take some eggs to auction. At the cattle sales here, they auction eggs.

    Maybe you have a neighbor that will help you lighten the load and be glad to have eggs.

    Happy egg eating.
