Interesting morning. When I opened up the chicken coop egg door, what should I find but a monster egg. It was easily twice the size of a normal egg. I remember one particular chicken that was running around in quite a tizzy yesterday evening and now I know why. I pity that chicken; this must have been uncomfortable to deliver.
Well that egg was a double-yolker. No wonder it was so huge. I wonder how common that is. Never seen one before, although I’ve heard of it, certainly.
I made a dish that my Japanese teacher recommended: steam rice (this was new crop too, so very fresh!) according to her special directions, then stir up a raw egg and drizzle over the hot rice. It sort of semi-cooks the egg. I then applied some furikake (dried seaweed and sesame seeds) to the top. Mmmm, delicious!
Afterwards I went on a 27-mile bicycle ride up the coast with a new friend. Oh man, my quads were killing me. Fortunately the day was cloudy and cool, and I had a double-yolker inside me to power through the ride.
