Hey! Take a look at these eggs. Just look at them. Aren’t these the sexiest eggs ever? I ended up scrambling them. I know, right? They would have been perfect, and I mean perfect, over easy. But, hey, I’m on a diet and I would have really wanted (no, needed!) to sop them up with some bread or potatoes, which were already slated for lunch, so….(I did not photograph the debauchery).
Now, the purpose of this post is not just the beauty of these eggs, though it was inspired by it. No, I just wanted to suggest purchasing your eggs from local farmers rather than from commercial egg plants (that means your regular Wal-Mart eggs) where a hen may be confined, virtually immobile in a small battery cage for its entire natural life, unable to perform of any of its innate, natural acts (such as walking), or enjoy fresh air, sunlight, chicken camaraderie, etc. It’s really very obscene and inhumane. Fuck that. I’m not down with cruelty to animals. Are you?
