I must always have a carton of eggs in the fridge. After university, there was a time eggs was what I had with every meal. I went from co-operative living at university eating from the cafeteria every day for every meal to making every meal on my own on a tiny budget. It was always breakfast for dinner and I did not mind. As I am approaching my mid-30s, I continue to do breakfast for dinner. Since I don’t eat a lot of meat and needed enough protein to get through my pregnancy, I had to eat lots of eggs (plus the morning protein shake to give me that boost). Plus my kid needs protein and she prefers eggs and beans. She does not really go out of her way to eat meat. Very rarely does she reach out for chicken. I am happy to say that it saves me money because I would probably find the meat on the floor.
Of course there are chicken eggs, but I do hope to get my hands on little quail eggs, duck eggs, and century eggs. Will I dare myself to eat balut (a fertilized duck egg)? Where would I find balut in the first place?
I do want to try making eggs bonda at some point. It’s a boiled egg dipped in spiced batter and it’s fried. I’ve had it in Indian restaurants and would to make some myself.
