LIZA TELLS US WHAT EGGS REALLY ARE

Liza and Kate came to play today. We had a treasure hunt--I'm getting ever so clever at hiding clues--they had to have "hot" and "cold" hints a couple of times. They laid on a blanket and ate popcorn and watched a movie. And...they made buttermilk pie! The recipe is here. They made two so they could take one home. Taylor called tonight to report. It was a success and the girls each had one and a half pieces. I don't blame them. Buttermilk pie is really good.
While they were making pie they each had to crack three eggs.After Liza cracked her second egg she told me what eggs really are. I must confess I have been ignorant of the true facts all these years.

Eggs are liquid chickens.

There! Aren't you glad you have someone like me to pass on valuable information? You now have a superior brain, just like Liza.

What beautiful granddaughters. What a fun day with Grandma, I'll have to try these ideas with the kids. I'll have to try buttermilk pie. Very cute liquid chickens, who would have thought.

That is a classic. I'm not sure if it makes me like eggs less or more!!

Oh, I love that, esp. in light of our new chickens this year!! According to my boys, the chickens "ppop" the eggs out.... it's very hard to correct them, because how do I explain? LOL

Why haven't I commented on this eggie post? Did you notice, in all your camera skills, that you erased Kate's little legs in that first picture? That's pretty cheeky of you.
