I finally feel that spring is here to stay.
The days are longer and warmer.
My garden is turning from sepia to color.
And the birds are chirping like crazy at dawn.
At Clover Leaf Farm,
This family of six gets more eggs than they can consume.
In two days they got two dozens.
They just had to start selling some.
I just jumped right in to the car and zoomed over after N posted on Facebook that the egg stand was open, and her kids were selling as long as the eggs would last.
At $4 a dozen? (They sell for less at the grocery store.)
But for farm fresh and organic eggs, from free range chickens,
And they taste great too.
I just read in a Swedish Magazine that eggs contain the HDL (the "good" cholesterol) and egg consumption can actually lower your LDL (the "bad" cholesterol). I just thought I should share because eggs have always had a bit of a bad rep for it's cholesterol.
Moreover, an egg is an extraordinary (I really had to contain myself not to write eggstraordinary) little power food. It packs a lot of protein, vitamins A, B, D, and E, iron, calcium and zinc, good healthy fats, no carbs, and... is absolutely yummy.
It's been a month since I last posted, I can't believe it, a whole month. Time flies...
In my defense, my parents came to visit from Sweden for 3 weeks to be here for my, ehm, 40th birthday (shhh... don't tell anyone). Actually, turning such a big number wasn't as hard as I expected. In fact, it was great. I don't think I've ever felt so special in my whole life with all the attention and sweet birthday wishes that I got.
My awesome husband decided to splurge on the camera of my dreams. I am so happy, this camera is fantastic, love it. I get a little excited just thinking about it. Good thing I also got two big books on the camera, because there is so much to learn. I hope to share some pictures with you soon.
