Tomorrow, 12 October, is World Egg Day. This day was first celebrated in 1996 and is calendarised on every second Friday in October. “There is so much to celebrate – Eggs have the potential to feed the world Eggs have a vital role to play in feeding people around the world, in both developed and developing countries. They are an excellent, affordable source of high quality protein, with the potential to feed the world.” – Thinkegg.com
Some fun egg facts:
- Did you know that a hen lays between 300 and 325 eggs a year? (Almost one every day!)
- Want to tell if an egg is raw or hard-cooked? Spin it! If the egg spins easily, it is hard-cooked but if it wobbles, it is raw.
- As a hen grows older she produces larger eggs.

Enough said, you should get excited about it! As eggs are in most of our fridges or pantries and being such a versatile ingredient, we’d like to share a couple of recipe ideas for tomorrow.
Knorr has an Easy Eggs Benedict Style Recipe for breakfast.

If it is different, made with love and contains Italian parsley or rosemary, I love it! I'm inspired by my daughter, born Sept 2010, a good latte served with a pretty piece of cake or even better: a carrot and cream cheese-centered muffin. I live by the motto "If you love what you do, you'll never work a day". May you be inspired to live a lovilee life! -
