Double Yolks

Josh helped me go grocery shopping the other day. One of the things I had him run to get was 2 dozen eggs. ( By the way, How much are eggs where you live? Here they are $2.69 a dozen!) I've taught the kids to always check for cracked eggs before we buy them. Josh was so excited when he came back because all the medium eggs were mixed half white eggs, half brown eggs. We love brown eggs! When I made eggs for breakfast the next morning, one of the brown eggs was a double yolk. How cool! This made me think of two things. One, Mam-maw would always be so excited to show us when one of her chickens gave us a double yolk. Hers seemed to do that a lot! The second is when Caroline Ingalls brought in her eggs and Mrs. Olsen wanted to drop the price she would buy them for. Caroline said, "But 2 of them are double yolks!"


  1. hahahahahahahahaha!!! lol lol! i thought about the little house on the prarie episode too! i just got a doulbe yolk the other day (it was an egg that i borrowed from a neighbor! they said double yolks bring good luck :) it was my second double yolk ever!

  2. Mam-maw and Pap-paw were always so excited when they got a double yolk. I remember the scene from Little House on the Prarie too. Love that show.
