We are on day two of the Daylight Savings aftermath. HA! And for some strange reason I woke up at 4:40 a.m. which was our old 3:40 a.m. I was wide awake too. This isn’t how it usually works. I’m not usually awake earlier, I’m usually struggling to wake up “on time”! At least that is how it has gone in past years. But I guess not this year. Which is weird. And confusing. And makes me think that this may all come back to haunt me later today.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you don’t ZONK OUT!!!


A good egg …

About a year-ish (or two???) ago I had bought a carton of eggs from a warehouse style store. I had bought eggs from this store many times before but this particular egg carton weirded me out so much that I've not bought eggs from them since.

What was weird, you ask?

Almost every egg in that 18-count carton was a double yolked egg. Whoa. At first I thought, "Wow, neat!" But as the days passed and the eggs cracked my "neat" turned into "What the heck?!?" I wasn't sure what the stats were on naturally occurring double yolks but I knew that this carton was definitely not normal. So I googled. The information I found stated that a naturally occurring double yolked egg occurs 1 in 1000 eggs laid. SAY WHAT?!?! Yeah, it's RARE. Now I could have been naive and just thought I was lucky to have had all those double yolked eggs OR I could be paranoid. You guessed it, I went with paranoid.

Quite some time has passed since then and I haven't had one double yolked egg. Until today! Now I'm not sure if I've cooked 1000 eggs since the "freak of an egg carton" incident but with as much as we go through eggs around here I feel, safe to say, that we are at least darn close to that number. So I'm going to assume that my egg this morning was one of those naturally occurring double yolked eggs and go back to thinking, "NEAT!"

Well, I hope you all have a day where you find a good egg!!!
