Incredible and Edible

Do you like eggs? How do you like them? Eggs are one of my new favorite foods. I never used to like them. At all. I remember plugging my nose as a little girl, trying to get them down. All of that changed when I was pregnant with my first child. I went from never eating them, to having one almost everyday.

I like them scrambled, or fried (well done, please) with cheese, tomato, and ketchup on toast. Maybe even a bit of Tabasco.

They are almost the perfect food. I like to decorate with them too.

So, if you don't like them, go ahead, give them another try. You might be surprised.
P.S. my lounge pants have been featured here....take a look if you get a chance!

With each pregnancy, my craving for egg salad sandwiches multiplies 10 fold. Seriously. I think I'll go make one right now.

Great plug on Sew Mama Sew! Congrats!

Eggs are touch and go for me. Sometimes they sound great and other times (like after a night of a few coctails) no way! Your egg photos are just goreous though. Who knew a silly old egg could be a work of art??!

I love eggs too, although I have always liked them- never had an aversion to them.
Real blue eggs are laid and nested on my spring/summer garden door basket every year.
Mama can sew (you)- Still loving the lounge pants, some AB fabric came today- most of it tomorrow from AB, so excited!

How funny that with your pregnancy you liked eggs, i'm the complete opposite. Now that i'm pregnant I have to plug my nose to get them down! But I use to love eggs with salsa or in a breakfast burrito.

Love the eggs. My mom always has a farm lady deliver brown eggs which she swears taste better. I love eggs, especially in quiche. PS-I hope those lounge pants help you lounge around some. They are cute.

We love eggs to (hubby and kids eat them the same way you do - fried egg sandwiches), and I've enjoyed nosing around your blog. You've given me some good ideas - especially the lounge pants. Thanks for putting some good ideas out there,

Pretty egg cups on a pretty platter! I find that when I have an egg for breakfst that I'm not hungry for lunch as early as if I had oatmeal or some other cereal.

i am not a huge fan of eggs, in frittata and stuff they are ok. just on their own, nope. but your platter sure makes them look beautiful!
