Cock-a-doodle-DOO, Good Morning to You!

Lynne Robinson, Hewitt, New Jersey
Look what we’re having for breakfast this morning! Fresh eggs! Yesterday I walked up the driveway to get the mail and came back with a dozen eggs from the neighbor next door. She just happened to be driving by and I was in the right spot at the right time. Aren’t they pretty? I wasn’t even sure they had chickens. I knew they at least had a rooster because he’s been crowing up a storm lately. Plus, the woods are so thick between us that we can’t even see their house during the summer. Now that the trees are pretty much bare I think the sound travels more.

She said they are just old enough now to start laying and she’s getting a dozen per day; more than she can eat. She had just given away another dozen to the new folks down the street. I offered to pay her but she said they were a gift. She will be starting to sell them soon, however. I told her to count me in as a regular customer. How cool is that?

And, I just put the last bite of my cheese omelet in my mouth. I used the huge “goose” egg looking one in the middle. [She said she has some kind of exotic but couldn’t remember the name. Some chicken with ‘furry’ feet.] It had two yolks! And, another overly large white egg had two yolks too. So, we shared a two-egg-four-yolk omelet. How does that happen?? Whatever the cause, they were delicious. There is nothing quite like a fresh egg.

I think in return I will make her some cookies using a few of the eggs. I think I’ll bake up some Sour Cream Sugar Cookies to take to her to thank her. And I just might keep a few for myself! Yum!

Oh, one other thing before I go. Please don’t tell Mom, she’d be so jealous. She misses her chickies so…


Welcome, I'm Lynne. You know me better as a 'new' Jersey Girl. But now I've moved back to my 'home' state and I am living in NoCo (Northern Colorado).This blog will be about my thoughts, good food, and of course, dogs.
