This morning I ate The Best One Yet because I made it from one of these blue eggs. I'm pretty sure I could have challenged Martha Stewart in the kitchen and won this round.
I was gifted with a dozen fresh eggs from Natalie at http://knatolee.blogspot.ca/ that her hens so generously laid for me. "Thank you, ladies."
Don't you just love hens? I think I want some of my own soon.
Look at the dark yellow yolk. It was full of flavour and so fresh.
I placed it on a slice of whole wheat toast bought from Bob's bakeshop in Almonte. What a great combination.
Here's how I poach an egg. It comes out perfect everytime.
Bring water to a boil and add 1/2 tsp. of white vinegar and a pinch of salt.
Once boiling, take the pot off the burner and place the egg in the pot.
The second piece of toast was covered in honey from Natalie's farm, too. Best honey, ever. Her blog is full of wonderful information on hobby farming. She can tell you everything you need to know about bee-keeping & raising ducks and chickens. You'll meet her adorable dogs and four entertaining cats.
Right after breakfast I headed out with Kane. We walked for an hour and he enjoyed the cooler weather. He even walks faster without the sun beating down on him.
Then it was time to bake The Best Banana Bread EVER.
I found this amazing recipe at http://anextraordinaryday.net/the-best-banana-bread-recipe-blogiversary-giveaway/. Well, it turned out that this is one of the best recipes I have tried. Even Kane gave it 'two paws up'. Yes, he loves banana bread. So, I'll pass this on to you and all you have to do is pop over to this blog and the recipe is waiting for you. Lots of great photos of the bread, too. Enjoy!
Oh great, now I'm getting some help cleaning up.

"Are you hiding a chicken?"
