Previously I have mentioned that my husband loves eggs. That man can eat two dozens of eggs in one week, which leaves me with the challenge of finding cheap eggs. I once have considered raising chickens on my own, but decided that I was too busy right now with work and school. Plus my husband thought the idea was crazy.
So you can only imagine my reaction, when Daniel called me one day from work and said… “Let’s get a goat!”
“A goat?!?! For what? Are you crazy!?” I answered thinking that my husband must be running a fever. Ok, so maybe he saw our down the mountain neighbor’s goats and wants a goat for a pet.
“Do you what to have a goat so we can have free goat milk or do you want to have a goat as a pet?” I questioned my husband’s intentions. “No, I want a goat so that it can eat our grass and I don’t have to mow it,” my husband answered me.
I couldn’t stop laughing at his remark and quickly told him that I believe he does a fine job of cutting our grass and we should leave it that way. Anyhow this story doesn’t really have to do anything with freezing eggs, but since we are on the topic of livestock, I thought it would be appropriate for me to share this silly story with you.
Now lets move on to the topic of freezing eggs. Right now we have about 5 dozen of eggs in our fridge thanks to my co-worker and Ingles’ great sale. Not too long ago I read an article on what you can and can’t freeze and was shocked to discover that you can freeze eggs. The idea of egg freezing experiment was born.
I cracked several eggs, stirred them up, poured liquid in to the ice cubes and stuck the tray in the freezer. After several hours, I removed cubed eggs and put them in a bag and back to the freezer.
A few days later I offered to make scrambled eggs for my husband to see if he could tell any difference in the frozen eggs and regular non frozen eggs. I did mix non frozen eggs with frozen ones.
The result…. He couldn’t. I now can safely stock up on eggs and freeze them in the ice cubes, so that later I can ask my husband, “Honey, how many cubes of eggs would you like for breakfast?”
