Things are getting freaky in the Red Ramekin kitchen. And no, this has nothing to do with food porn. Rather, it refers to the freaky eggs we recently purchased at our local, and until now seemingly unremarkable, Whole Foods.
It's about to strike midnight, and I was intending to save my blogging energy for tomorrow, but I had to get a quick word in about the alarming frequency with which we've been finding double-yolked eggs in this most recent dozen. We've only used four of them so far, and THREE, yes that's THREE (3) of them have been double-yolks!
I have always considered the double-yolk a rare and somewhat celebratory occurrence - something that happens once every year or so, at most. But right now I'm three for my last four. Is this normal? Have any of you, dear readers, ever had a similar experience? Or maybe there is some funky hormone circulating through my cage-free egg pool...
There is something oddly intriguing to me about the double-yolk phenomenon, so perhaps I am overreacting to this evening's excitement. It sure seemed exciting to crack open three of these anomalies in a row, though. Exciting indeed.
I wish I had a better picture, but alas, this is the type of experience to which even a great photo cannot do justice. Updates to come on the remaining eight specimens still left in the carton.
****Update: I'm now 5 for 6. Jonathan had "2" eggs for breakfast, both of which were doubles!
