The Week of Eggs

by HEAB on July 26, 2010

On our way home from Missouri yesterday, we stopped at the egg lady’s house. There is literally a woman who lives right on the outskirts of town where we stayed, and when she has fresh eggs, she puts out an Eggs for Sale sign in her front yard. We got there just as her and her adorable little husband were leaving for church. When she heard we were in from out of town and hoping for some fresh farm eggs, she went and gathered 4 dozen eggs while her husband entertained us. I split the eggs with my mom and brother and ended up with 2 dozen freshly laid eggs for $2.00. Can’t beat that! Thank you Egg Lady. :)

Since Chris and I will be leaving this coming weekend for our Babymoon, I’m trying really hard not to go to the grocery store this week. So, the eats should be interesting, and they will include lots of eggs…starting with my dinner last night…


A scrambled egg mess with red bell pepper, cherry tomatoes, sliced mushrooms, spinach, and crumbled goat cheese. Sadly, I’m all out of wing sauce. :(

Please send me your favorite egg-o-licious recipes. I’m thinking I need to make custard oats. What’s your favorite way to prepare them? Also, any good frittata recipes out there? I seem to always scorch the bottom of mine.

Before I head to my favorite vinyasa yoga class, I have some important things to share with you.

First off, would you like to win a bottle of Extra Virgin Pressed Avocado Oil?

Jessica has started a site called Give Away One Thing A Day. She will be doing daily giveaways both to visitors (weekdays) and charities (weekends). Visitors who win the daily giveaways will be asked to pay it forward by giving away an item of their own and then sharing the story with the site. The goal is to create a fun, interesting, and heartwarming site about living lighter, one day at a time. Cool concept, no? To help Jessica bring more awareness to Give Away One Thing A Day, I’ve offered to help her out by hosting a giveaway here at HEAB. So, for a chance to win the bottle of avocado oil pictured above, there are three ways you can enter:

1) Leave a comment on this post.

2) Tweet about the giveaway and leave a comment below saying you did so.

3) Link to the giveaway on your own blog and leave a comment below saying you did so.

I’ll leave the comments open for 24 hours, and Jessica will post the winner on Give Away One Thing A Day tomorrow. Thanks guys!

Secondly, don’t forget to enter my Maranatha Nut Butter Giveaway as it ends tonight at midnight (CST).
