Green Eggs and...Prosciutto?

After a week full of travel for several out-of-town work obligations (about 1200 km/750 mi in all), we decided to treat ourselves to a special brunch this morning. We made an omelette with cheese, prosciutto, and spinach, served with a French Toast bagel and a bowl of fruit & yogurt. And of course, some lovely Campfire coffee, our favourite blend prepared by Great Western Coffee Co., our local coffee roaster in Prince Albert.

First, though, we went to the fridge to get some eggs. Just yesterday, our friends Karen and Tyler brought us some eggs when they came to church. Karen and husband Ray live on an acreage with their son, Tyler (8), where they keep lots of critters. Besides a cat and two dogs of their own, Karen and Tyler are in charge of a whole kennel-ful of canines. Gryffin absolutely LOVES it when we need to drop him off at the kennel.

Karen also has a chicken coop with a number of hens, so the eggs she and Tyler brought were farm-fresh. (Thank you, Karen and Tyler!) These eggs have a bit of a different consistency from store-bought eggs, and they also taste better, somehow. But what we like best about them is their colour!

Have you read the Dr. Seuss story, Green Eggs and Ham? (Click here for the 1.5-minute video.) If you get eggs from Karen, you can actually try this dish! We had green eggs and prosciutto, which is a type of ham, so our omelette qualifies. :-)

Besides green eggs, Karen's hens also produce white and brown eggs. We really get a kick out of the rainbow of colours they produce.

So the moral of the story is...

Yes, we DO like green eggs and ham, we DO like them, Sam I am!

  1. Cute post! How timely was your comment on our 5 month post :) I love that encouragement and truth from a beautifully married couple. I was just in a discussion with a co-worker about Divorce. It was breaking my heart, but she has come through divorce and is now getting married again. Her faith has grown and there is so much to it, but I needed an some encouragement - that's where your comment came into play!! Thank you Julie :)
