i believe that life would not be complete sans comfy 'ol tee-shirts, the Golden Girls, and the color pink
& rock on, PITTSBURGH-

How old are your eggs, luvs? Eggs can safely be stored in the refrigerator for as long as 4 weeks. That is, if they are kept in their original carton in the lower, rear portion of the refrigerator.

Try par boiling asparagus, then lay them flat in a glass dish, add some milk, butter, hard boiled eggs, and cheese. It's like the mac and cheese, but with asparagus and eggs

Float test the suckers-------if they still lie on the bottom of a container and don't float they are still great to go. If they float toss them. Animals love eggs and it's great for their coats as well. So you can always cook them for any dogs or cats that you own. And as pdswife suggests deviled eggs or egg salad are great. Also egg foo yung which uses egg as a basic ingredient--healthy and easy to make.
The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.

Might be an oppertunity to do some baking for a local charity group/hospital/hospice or old people's home. Simple sponges usually go doen well with people who have know home baking any more.

Fritata, courgettes are my current favourite, and with onions: great for lunch boxes etc.

As I mentioned a while back, my new favorite breakfast is an egg in a frame, or bullseye, or one eyed jack, or any other name for an egg put in a hole that's cut in the center of a piece of bread and cooked like a grilled cheese sandwich. I just finished one. I need to get a bigger non-stick pan so I can cook more than one at a time...
I also like hardboiled eggs and will cook them before the expiration date runs out and snack on them. No, I don't like hardboiled eggs, I love them.

As a matter of fact I'm picking up some wood this week and starting a chicken coop so I can have fresh eggs and a steady supply!

I always have two or three dozen eggs in the fridge. I need them for so many things, baking, and always making deviled eggs. Macaroni salad, hard boiled for my salads or just to snack on . They do keep a very long time I wouldn't worry about them.

You could make a flourless chocolocate cake, that will use up almost a dozen!

Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.
