Fresh, fresh eggs
I bought some local eggs several years ago and I was thrilled to find that a good seven out of the dozen were double-yolkers. Those were delicious. I think I invited my folks over for breakfast after I got them.
There are places near me and a bit far away that sell eggs from chickens they raise themselves. One of those places, about an hour away, sells eggs from Chilean chickens. Those eggs are varying shades of blue and green (though the insides are just the same as any other egg). Hard boil those and have a beautiful snack later.
These eggs pictured came from my friend Dina. When I'm over at her place, we'll visit the chickens. These were such a luxury. The yolks were creamy. Since I don't always have a chance to buy or get local eggs, when I do get them I pretty much eat them for breakfast--fry them in a little olive oil or poach them. I want to enjoy those yolks.
