Thanks.
I hope to get to the store today and the eggs goldenrod could be on my plate today or tomorrow I don't think I've been to the store in at least two weeks.... but now that my milk is gone
Pickled eggs. I need to hunt down a recipe for that. And I think I can use up some of that white distilled vinegar I have that way, too, unless I have to get the pickling vinegar. I've never pickled anything, so we'll see.

To tell the truth, I was a bit surprised that at 2-1/2 weeks old, they all sank and stayed there. I guess eggs can really last a long time if you are getting them fresh.

The white vinegar will be fine in the pickled eggs. I think I've seen some recipes here, if not I'll post mine. I always check the expiration date on the egg cartons I buy. Sometimes the date can be a month away from when I'm buying them. And, who knows how long they've been sitting on the shelf. I don't mind paying the extra money at the Farmer's Market for ones that are only a few days old.

ditto, sort of. We knew them as eggs ala goldenrod and mom made it for us kids when we were sick. Dad was allergic to eggs so we NEVER had eggs for any meal, unless we were sick and mom made something special for us.

I love eggs, and use a lot of eggs, had 2 fried in bacon grease a few days ago for lunch. We were briefly chicken holders, but stray dogs mutilated them and we never got any more. I can go through a whole lotta eggs

Yes sattie, it is beer.
And if you'll notice..... it is one beer. It's not like I have 3 or 4 drinks sitting there in front of me.

Suzi, I think a little has to do with distortion, it seems like digital cams like to blow up nearby objects, but I have one chicken that lays what I would call a medium egg. The rest are at least large, possibly jumbo. I know that was one of the small ones.
I never get any double yolkers, though. And that's fine with me.

I guessing it has to do with perspective, too? How high is your hand holding the egg above the plate of eggs? maybe at least 12 inches? or more? The eggs do not look small (or medium) to me because I saw it in perspective.

Poor Chinese college students (like myself) have fried eggs over rice for dinner! You might try it sometime, its quite good, it might even be a comfort food, I'm not sure about that.

You just fry some eggs and when they're almost done, add a little soy sauce to the pan so it can heat up, and you pour the whole thing over a bowl of rice. Its even better when the eggs are still runny so it can run out all over the rice.
