Eggs For Breakfast On A Foggy Rainy Morning

I eat a lot of eggs! Two, three or even four a day. I do skip a day once in a while, don't eat all the yolks sometimes or only have one egg once in a while, but I feel much better when I have my eggs for breakfast.

I got to wondering if it was ok to eat that many eggs, did a search, and came up with way too many and confusing web pages to post links. The articles seem to agree that people should use their common sense and eat the number of eggs appropriate to their level of health and other foods they are eating. So no links, except, this is a fun page. I had a lot of fun moving the little blue box and dragging the pages around to see different articles. This is a little blast from the past... 1978. I love the prices and I even found Ann Landers. LOL

I took this photo on the way to the gate this morning. I love these foggy rainy mornings. The woods are so silent and there is something ethereal about them. It's as if I could expect to see a band of elves moving among the misty trees. After Kristine drove out, I locked the gate, and walked back to the house. Time for breakfast! Two eggs, cooked in my little iron skillet with olive oil. Toast. Decafe. OJ.

The photos of these egg recipes look so good that I thought I'd post the link here. I don't think I will actually make any of these egg dishes anytime soon, but I sure like to look at the photos, read the recipes and think about making them and eating them. Yum!

One of my nieces has to eat gluten free and I know I tested allergic to wheat. Not so much now that I'm older, but I have thought about going gluten free for a trial, but I haven't done it yet. I have all these bags of flour to use up!

I think the problem with IPhoto is that the library has suffered some kind of glitch. I created a new library which has made IPhoto very happy and it is now working again. For some unknown reason IPhoto has placed the old library in another folder on my desktop. Well, at least I know where the rest of my photos are. I think the problem started when I created a folder named Pictures in Safari and IPhoto got confused and put the library in that Picture folder instead of the IPhoto Picture folder. Safari and IPhoto are not supposed to mix up their folders. Good grief!

When my nephew and niece stayed over this past weekend I was making eggs and toast for breakfast. I had for eggs scrambled and ready for cooking when they said they wanted them fried! So I fried them each an egg, and burned one in between. Then I scrambled the other four, ate half, and either Mike ate the other half or threw it out. So that was 7 eggs in one day! But we are now getting 7-8 eating eggs a day and about 5 or 6 a day for hatching.

Pretty Picture this morning :) I eat alot of eggs too and when I went for a Dr. appointment this past summer... they checked my cholesterol and everything. The Dr. said everything was wonderful to keep doing whatever I'm doing, perfect health :) In my opinion eggs are a natural god given food... so they cant be bad for ya like people think (thats just my think now). Those fresh eggs sure do taste good! I just love going to the coop collecting them everyday.

Yum ~ I like my eggs cooked in olive oil too. We've eat alot of eggs this week , but it's not the norm for me. I love having breakfast for supper , so we've did that a couple of times this week. Glad you found your pictures and happy to know I'm not the only one that loses pics in the computer (LOL).

There probably are little elves running around out in your woods...
I thought my egg consumption would go up dramatically after the hens started laying, but, it really hasn't. My husband on the other hand....
I think moderation is the key to most things. Anything is probably bad for you if too much is consumed. Well, maybe not lettuce :-)

Your photo of your gate is special. You should frame it or make it into cards.
