When Joan last visited her (ex)1 step-mother, she very kindly gave us a dozen eggs from her chickens.

They were amazingly different in size and colour.

When I cracked them, the (unpictured) yolks were an incredibly violent yellow. And they contributed to a pretty spectacularly delicious quiche last night.

Yep, I’m still working on getting that pastry right (ARGH! shrinking).

And still working on taking a decent photo of food (or of anything for that matter!) I’m mostly enjoying the process, but at times both can be quite infuriating.
