Eggs are on the menu!
This picture pretty much shows the amount of eggs we go through weekly. We purchase 10 dozen eggs a week from a local family who has free range chickens. At only 2.00 a doz. it is an expensive, good for you food that goes a long way. What more could you ask for?

Some of the ways our eggs get used~
scrambled in cultured butter

What are some ways you like to use eggs?
We served this with asparagus and cornbread!
(fyi,we doubled it for our family and it barely was enough)
6 oz. softened cream cheese
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. each basil and oregano leaves
2 T. butter
1 1/2 C. chopped green peppers (we used black olives since I didn't have peppers)
24 slices chopped pepperoni
Beat cream cheese, eggs, salt and seasonings. Melt butter in 10 inch ovenproof skillet. Add vegetables, cook and stir 5 min. Add cream cheese mixture and stir well. Cover pan and cook for about 5 minutes or until the center is almost set. Then set under broiler for about 5 minutes until finished.
