Recently a friend – knowing I was short on eggs due the raccoon devastation last summer – shared a shopping bag full of them with me.
I reached in the bag and pulled out two cartons full of eggs in every color of the rainbow – and then I noticed another container.
A closer examination revealed 4 mammoth eggs.
I quickly sent her a text asked, “Who or what critter laid those monstrosities?”
Her reply – a goose.
Wow! I know understand why we call a bump on the head a goose egg. Those things are huge!
I feel like Wilma Flintstone when I crack one – which isn’t easy since the shells are so very thick. I almost expect to find a baby dinosaur looking up at me!
We thought about dying them for Easter – but decided they would be way too easy to find in an Easter egg hunt.
So how big are these eggs?
Buddy boiled one and made a deviled egg so big he could only eat half.
It only takes the whites of 5 eggs to make an entire angel food cake.
But the most amazing thing of all is that one egg will fill up Pedro.
Now that’s a big egg.
One thought on “Monster Eggs”
We did eggs with the kiddos and they would have LOVED to have big ones!!!!
