This week…we’ll be eating lots of eggs.
Why, you ask? Because my friend with chickens is going out of town and she asked me to please feed and water their chickens while they are gone. And, I can keep all the eggs I collect each day. We’re talking about 50 chickens here. Which equals around 2 1/2 dozen eggs each day. Bring on the omelets!
Oh, and don’t think I’m not nervous about being in charge of 50 chickens for an entire week. (Remember how the guinea pig we were “guinea pig sitting” for a couple of weeks ago passed on while in our care? Yikes! C’mon chickens…hang with me here…)
So here is our menu for the week….our eggstraordinary, eggsellent menu for the week. (I’m done cracking jokes now.)

As for the blogging menu this week…I promised to start back up again with my Getting Real with Food series (perhaps I should share all of the wonderful attributes of eggs…). I’ll share some good starting places if you are trying to eat healthier.
And…because we’ll be starting a new school year in just a few more weeks…which I’m super excited about…I’ll begin sharing a bit about what all we’re gearing up for!
See you soon!
