Every afternoon, a trip to the pond
results in this find...
four lovely duck eggs.
We have come to love our duck eggs...
available only in the spring.
Our ducks are trying hard to increase their numbers,
and daily I am thwarting their efforts.
Our duck eggs have become a hot commodity.
Hubbs gets requests for them all the time.
You see, duck eggs are richer, fluffier, and tastier than chicken eggs.
And I have to admit that our chicken eggs are the best I have ever tasted.
But, the duck eggs?.... Over the top deliciousness!
So, it looks as though our flock will stay the same size this year...
unless there is a sly duck lying on a nest hidden in the woods!
So, if you ever have an opportunity to enjoy some duck eggs,
fry one up in a pan with a little butter, and a little salt and pepper....
And speaking of salt...
I am not the only one who likes a little salt.
Moonbeam tops off every meal with a little time at the salt lick.
It's amazing just how far that tongue can reach for a taste of salt!!
