I must confess the egg is not from my chickens. It is from my neighbor’s free-range chickens. We are in a sort of breakfast club; I trade him homemade bacon for fresh eggs. Someday soon I hope to have my own chickens. I never seem to remember to ask for some until I want them on Sunday morning when I don’t want to disturb him.

The emulsion underway. Such a marvelous thing from simple ingredients.
You’d almost think I put food coloring in it; it’s so yellow.
