I know Easter is over but I've been thinking about eggs. I had been worried that I may have been eating too many because our fabulous new chickens have got the hang of it rather quickly. My cake recipie this week used up a few, we have enjoyed eggy bread remembered from Guide camps many moons ago, I even made my first quiche (5 eggs!). How many though is safe to eat?

'And just to set the record straight there is no limit on the number of eggs that you can eat in a week.
So to encourage you to eat more eggs here are a selection of egg related items from Folksy this week.
