Egg Cookery

Since early August, our little flock has been providing us with 4 eggs a day. Needless to say, we've been eating a lot of eggs. Henry has especially embraced the addition of this ~ impossible to get closer to the source ~protein to his diet.

He has begun fixing his own breakfast everyday. Of course, egg cookery has been his focus and usually there is ham involved. He takes it very seriously and concentration is high. I have many, many pictures of the egg dishes he has created. For some reason the children feel compelled to photograph everything they cook. Hmmmm.

They say the true testament of a great chef is the ability to cook eggs beautifully. There are so many methods and so many ways for the cooking of them to go horribly wrong.

I think these are beautiful.

But the service is the best.

I've heard that eggs taste absolutely amazing when they're fresh out of the chicken! Is that true? The closest I've ever come is the brown free-range eggs at Whole Foods!
