Green Egg and Ham

Mei finally laid an egg! We have had the girls since March and both Saffron and Blackberry have been laying since August. We were beginning to think that Mei wasn't going to produce. But as I have mentioned before, she is one strange bird. Pretty, but strange.

Grayson called me on Wednesday, all excited about finding a green egg. We have had a few false alarms, but he assured me that is was very green.

Yep, its green alright! It might as well have been gold. We knew she would lay Martha Stewart-y colored eggs so we have been waiting with baited breath.

So what do you do with a green egg? You make green egg and ham, of course! Shawn whipped up a fantastic quiche with some crisped prosciutto. It was yummy.

We thanked Mei with a tomato.
