    They're really pretty. Much prettier in person than on the Interwebz. :)

    Thanks to Tinami for adorning my little peasant hut, and for bringing Dutch chickens to my proletariat breakfast table. Amen.

    So this Canadian was her local grocery store today and what did I find in the housewares section? A breakfast set with plate, bowl, mug and egg cup. I immediately thought of this thread.

    I think we need an FSU Egg Cup in the Official. Sets of two for most of us, and the bulk pack of two dozen for Tinami. :rollin:

    So the new show Covert Affairs, shown on Showcase in Canada, not sure where in USA, may actually be taped in Canada because the character's boss and the her boss's husband who is the head of the whole division had a scene where she served him breakfast in bed, complete with boiled egg in a very stylin' egg cup. It was actually almost a small rectangular plate, with molded egg-holder in the middle - in black.

    When I saw this weird egg recipe I immediately thought of this thread but wasn't sure about bumping it up again. But now as it's back, I'm sharing!

    I've sent the weird egg recipe to my sil. I told her if she made it, we'd be right over. I think I'm safe. ;)

    Speaking of breakfast and egg recipes, we made this last weekend and plan to have it again this weekend -

    Eggs with mustard creamed spinach and crispy crumbs


    It calls for a fried egg, but I could see it working with a poached egg (or the cheat of making a soft boiled egg and carefully peeling it), or with the egg on the side as an excuse to use one's lovely collection of egg cups. :lol:
