What to do with little chicken eggs? Make omelettes of course!

As you have probably guessed, we go through a lot of eggs here at our house, so that's why we have our own chickens. Back in April, we acquired 6 more chickens, since our older chickens were not laying as often, so were not keeping up with the demand. After eating eggs from our free range chickens, it hurts to have to buy eggs at the store. Just recently all of our young hens have started laying. When they first start laying, their eggs are very small and we find them all over the yard. They have finally learned to lay in the coop, but we don't always find them in the nesting boxes. They will eventually learn. Since we had an abundance of these little eggs, we decided to make omelettes tonight for dinner... so good! I put ham and cheese and a few green chilies in Bruce's and I enjoy mine with fresh tomatoes, green chilies, and a little cheese, topped with salsa and a couple dollops of sour cream... yum. One thing that we enjoy using in our omelettes is a spice called Sunny Paris that I purchase at Penzey's Spice Shop. That and a little salt and pepper with just a little milk and we're good. Omelettes for dinner... it's a good thing!

You can see how small the eggs are compared to the regular size
