Everyday Eggs

This is a picture of my husband making the eggscellent everyday eggs for me. It started this fall when he began making two eggs instead of one for his breakfast each morning. I would stumble into the kitchen and see an egg and eat it. Wa-la -- how easy is that!?! It was great. After a few months, I got tired of eggs and asked him to stop. I wanted to eat other things for breakfast, too.

But then, I began being overwhelmed and grumpy and easy to snap at the children. When I would look at the clock, it would be 10 or 11 o'clock in the morning and I hadn't yet had a thing to eat. And so I have gone back to the everyday egg plan. It has been so helpful to have protein right away when I wake up.

It has also helped my attitude on what I am served to eat. I am more flexible and thankful for food in front of me that I didn't have to prepare. It is just one less decision to make. Hubby has made the mistake of occasionally asking me how I would like my egg if I am in the kitchen when I stumble in before he makes it. But I really just want him to decide. Another new discovery for the hubby & I. Just decide. The one with lots of preferences really does have the preference for someone else to decide -- sometimes.


  1. What a sweetheart! A good breakfast really gets you going doesn't it?

  2. Hi, Kath, What a neat idea...a husband who makes two eggs every morning, one for him and one for you. I absolutely love eggs and could eat them everyday. I love them fried, boiled, scrambled, omelets, deviled, egg salad...all ways are yummy! What a sweet man you have and your children are adorable.

  3. If someone were fixing me eggs in the morning I'd be happy, but I'm still happy fixing my own eggs almost every morning.

    I love to cook, but once in awhile, is such a treat! Eggstraspecial!
