I eat eggs most mornings now. They keep me going until lunchtime. 

These ones are beauties, bought from a guy who has hens running around his back garden up Tain way.  The top middle one had three yolks.  THREE!

For the Flickr Daily Rituals group.

PS Returning to the Refugee Week theme tomorrow with a lovely chicken dish from Palestine.

  1. Wendy, I love your website and the way you write just make me want to try your recipes and enjoy eating. I have family that live in Dornoch and your photos have reminded me often of the beautiful Sutherland scenery. You mention Tain today, do you stay near Dornoch/Tain?

  2. Oh how pretty they are! And divine to be able to bouht them freerange like that! Although I’d much prefer if there were no yolk at all, can’t stand it, I only eat the whites…:)

  3. Such beautiful colours! I have seen the robin’s egg blue shade before, but never the sandy speckled brown of the bottom left egg. What a treat in the morning!

    How do you like your eggs? I like to go with poached or medium-boiled. Not too hard, not too soft. But at the moment I save them for weekend mornings, mostly due to time constraints. I am on a raspberry, yoghurt and seeds kick at the mo’ which is keeping me satisfied for now, but my breakfast trends never last too long!

  4. Gorgeous!

    This Saturday I’m picking up the chooks to move into the coop ECG and I have built. It won’t be too long until we’ve got our own lovely eggs. Woohoo!

  5. My brother has chickens as you know, one day when he was out we snuck round and placed cadbury’s cream eggs in the hen house….caused great hilarity the next day when he went to collect the eggs! 😉

  6. Have just finished a boiled egg breakfast. I’m feeling hard done by though as I only had the one yolk!
    Those are the prettiest selection of eggs I’ve seen.

  7. Alison – Hello and thank you! I live much closer to Inverness than Dornoch or Tain but work fairly close to them. Lovely, lovely area.

    Pia – No yolk????? That’s the best bit!

    Kavey – It was a great way to start the day. 🙂

    Johanna – At the moment I like them in an omelette with lots of veg or scrambled with blue cheese. That will change though. Love them any way!

    Christina – Woo hoo, indeed. Pictures please!

    Tastyeatsathome – It’s lovely to know where they come from, isn’t it?

    Gen – Lol! I remember that.

    Aforkfullofspaghetti – But it’s the kind of freakish chicken that I like. 🙂

    Antonia – They were very striking. And all different sizes too. The one with three yolks was shaped like a massive bullet.
