Kids’ Corner: An Ode to Eggs

By Trey Ferdyn, Age 11

Hi! I’m Trey, and I have a favorite food. Some of you guys might have favorite foods like ice cream, or pizza, or chocolate chip cookies, but mine is different. My favorite food is eggs. Ok, I know it sounds weird, but I really love eggs! My mom sometimes makes eggs for breakfast (or lunch, or dinner!) and I love them.

One of the reasons that I love them so much is that there are so many things that you can do with eggs! You can poach them, scramble them, you can hard boil them, you can turn them into an omelet, or so much more! One of my favorite ways to eat eggs is to scramble them, and mix in spinach and cheese.

Our family buys eggs from a local farmer, and they are so fresh and yummy! We love to buy local food because it tastes better than what you would buy at a grocery store. If you’ve never had a farm fresh egg and you think it’s probably the same as at the grocery store, believe me, it’s so much better! With local eggs, the yolk is all golden and delicious, and the eggs are sometimes really big, or sometimes smaller. It is also cool to be able to meet the farmer  and get to know where your food comes from. Recently, I got to visit the baby chicks at the farm, and they were so cute! Here are some pictures!

Alright, I guess it’s bye for now, but remember: eggs are the BEST!
