Monster Eggs

EggsRecently 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.

Whoa! Really?

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.
