Fresh from the coop to the Co-op!
I looked up to see Who'd written What about Eggs and found that Henry James (with his usual verbosity) observed:
I had an excellent repast -- the best repast possible -- which consisted simply of boiled eggs and bread and butter. It was the quality of these simple ingredients that made the occasion memorable. The eggs were so good that I am ashamed to say how many of them I consumed...While Frank McCourt in his novel Angela's Ashes put it rather more succinctly:
It might seem that an egg which has succeeded in being fresh has done all that can be reasonably expected of it.
Oh, God above, if heaven has a taste it must be an egg with butter and salt!
