i've been to spoilt with super fresh, free range, gorgeous fluorescent yellow, divinely delicious eggs in tassie. having your own chooks (therefore ones own egg supply) is all the rage. even among the suburbanites like sylv and mum. christine takes the prize though. she has 9 perfectly tame hens that lay eggs of all sizes. (though the photo might suggest i'm not convinced of the tameness – thank goodness for ed's protective foot gear) also she made me the best scrambled eggs for (2nd serving) lunch. just like oma used to make – with a sprinkling of fresh parsley. sigh. now i'm back to the store bought, pale, overpriced kind.
