Record Breaker!


Remember the giant egg? 
We get some really big ones on a regular basis,
but every now and then...

 
FIL and I say it's the biggest we've ever had.
Mr J says the other one was bigger.
We may never know...
but we will know if we ever get a bigger one in the future.

FIL held the measuring tape on it so I could document the size.  
7 7/8" around that bad boy!  Or should I say boys...

Now, that's a meal!

Holy macaroni, that's one BIG egg. It looks huge in the carton, but when I saw the exact measurement, I was astounded! Looks even better in the pan, what time is breakfast? I'll bring the biscuits.

My favorite way to do eggs...Pam, dab of butter, salt-pepper,carefully flip, cook until almost done, sprinkle cheese on top (to slightly melt), cut up, add salsa, and voila: a dish fit for a queen. :D

I always wonder if they hurt coming out when they are that big. Yep, it's twins!

I consider any egg to be a miracle and this one is the Queen of the Eggs!

My dear Lily, I've taken your fabulous idea for making my photo into a jig saw puzzle and have embedded the puzzle in a post under the picture. Thanks a whole bunch... have fun!

I know nothing about life on a farm, and so am really really curious why that 1 egg is sooooooo much larger than the others?

Come to dinner anytime (seems we might have a party with the number who wanted to come for dinner, lol)

They just keep getting bigger. I figure an ostrich size one is only a matter of time.
