Egg of the Morning, Beautiful Egg ....



Yes that is a misquotation of Lewis Carroll's Mock Turtle*. These ravishingly brown eggs (one has nice dark speckles) in their white container (the egg ppl say that styrofoam is easier to recycle because they can clean it without destroying it), just struck me this morning.

The label says, "hand gathered from organic, humanely raised, pastured chickens". Nice to see on a label, considering the egg farming practices of our times.

"Beautiful soup, so rich and green,

Waiting in a hot tureen!

Who for such dainties would not stoop?

Soup of the evening, beautiful Soup!

Soup of the evening, beautiful Soup!

Beau--ootiful Soo--oop! Beau--ootiful Soo--oop!

Soo--oop of the e--e--evening, Beautiful, beautiful Soup"
