Abundance

When you have alot of these:
You make this. With only two of the hens laying right now, we still get a dozen eggs a week. I haven't been baking alot and we have had only one breakfast meal. So some eggs needed to get used. I tried to think of what I could make that would use the most eggs - pound cake is my favorite cake - the recipe calls for 5 eggs. Problem solved. I used all the green bigger eggs to make the cake and it turned out beautifully. Now if I could only fit a cow on this property. Yum, fresh milk.

You can freeze eggs, or dry them. Angel Food cake takes about a dozen egg whites. Custards love the yolks. YUM YUM that cake looks mighty tasty.

Take care,

You're so funny! I was sitting there in church yesterday thinking about your transformation. I was also looking at your sister and you and how different your lives have become since you started homeschooling! I even thought that you might be interested in walking down to that great bottom land where your hubby tried a garden 2 years ago. You could get all kinds of veggies from that.

Oh I'm with you. I'd love to be able to fit a cow on our property too!! The cake looks delish.

Oh, I was going to say the say thing - you can freeze eggs. Just not in the shell!
