While we were visiting with our dear friends in CHI-CHI-CHI-Chino Valley, once again Missus DF made sure that we went home with some of her uber fresh eggs that her ‘girls’ had produced.
These are such beautiful organic eggs, not only on the outside, but look at the shell on the inside too! And the yolks are such a deep golden, well, egg color… very much unlike the commercial eggs that we get at the megamart. The girls are some of the best fed chickens that I have ever met. My girlfriend orders this special feed for them and then they get the odd goodie from the kitchen, which they go crazy for.
Our favorite way to eat these gems from Northern Arizona is just as a simple scramble made with butter for the pan (sshhh, please don’t tell my husband, he claims to HATE butter, but loves the way that I prepare his eggs), a pinch of salt and some chives. Serve it all up on a warm plate with Rye toast (lightly toasted and dry please), cold smoked salmon and some tomatoes, oh and loads of freshly cracked black pepper on DH’s plate and then for myself, Trader Joe’s whole wheat Italian bread (Tuscan Pane), butter, yes more butter and a dollop of my homemade Meyer Lemon Marmalade…
HEAVEN ON A PLATE!
