Eggs appear to have been heavy on my mind for breakfast this week. They are so good for you and so cheap at the same time. Well cheap is a relative word. I pay extra for organic pasture fed. But still cheap compared to grass fed beef! I am ordering pasture raised lamb this week, which I am excited about. I have never done that much with lamb...
