Eggs for breakfast

Yesterday I mentioned Cream of the West, a hot cereal that I often enjoy for breakfast. But occasionally I indulge in my favorite breakfast, fried potatoes and eggs.

The eggs in the photo -- looking pretty enough for Easter -- were winners at last summer's Park County Fair.

In 2008, Montana produced about 115 million eggs. There are plenty of homegrown eggs in most communities, and frequently they are available at farmers markets, so there is no reason not to eat local eggs.

Since there are so many to choose from, I hope to avoid eggs that come from hens who don't live carefree lives wandering around outside and scratching for a living. Everybody I personally know raises them this way, so we'll all be happy.


  1. Hi, Mary -- What beautiful eggs you've displayed on your blog! And how wonderful to only eat eggs from happy hens.. and to live in such a naturally dramatic place as Montana. Good luck with your blog about eating in your state.

  2. Mary, your blog makes me hungry! It also makes me appreciate the ability to slow down and savor natural beauty and natural food...I love your blog! You're really lucky to be where you are, doing what you're doing.
