Last week, I fixed my husband a couple of sunny side up eggs for breakfast before he went off to work. I fix his first because he has somewhere to be. Then I cook mine. I noticed that he bought size JUMBO LARGE eggs, and when I asked him why, he said we could not eat so many if they were bigger. So I figured I would make myself just one.
Well, it's a good thing I did, because after I cracked it open into the pan, I noticed, I was getting two birds with one egg. I other words, I was eating what might have been twins.
I try not to think about eating chicken embryos when I make eggs, (technically in my mind, they are still only just zygotes), because they are so delicious and relatively good for you. However, I am not a big fan of JUMBO LARGE eggs because that is just too much development that I am eating. I know I know, I eat steak....but this is different. It's way too intimate when it hasn't even got eyes yet. I suppose it could be worse. I could eat Balut (don't click if you have a weak stomach), those nearly fully grown embryos almost ready to hatch, then pickled and eaten as a delicacy in Phillipines, Vietnam, China, etc.
Anyway...well I ate it up and tried not to think about it too much. Heh.
