This week, a gift.
Last year I took on two ten day old chicks from the Infant school. We named them Beryl and Jean. Their names suit them. I love my girls, even though they are naughty, greedy and a bit daft. They are very tame and love a cuddle. They are inquisitive and always rush to greet me in the morning. They will strip my plants bare given half the chance. They have escaped countless times, but always come home to roost. I have pulled my hair out with their shenanigans, but they have also made me laugh. A lot.
They present me with two beautiful eggs every day. I will never get used to the excitement of finding these eggs in the coop in the morning. These eggs help to make a simply divine sponge cake. They make perfect poached eggs. My quiches have never tasted better.
These eggs are a gift. The humble egg. So versatile. So good for you. So enjoyed.
