Happy Easter

Hope everyone has had a wonderful day of celebrating and eating. I have been on a sort of self-imposed hiatus. Work & family have taken my "blogging" time. Hope to do more posting. No recipe today, but when I saw these little beauties at a local market I couldn't resist. These dainty little quail eggs brought back a rush of memories for me. I grew up in quail country and my Dad raised quail for a while. I had forgotten how beautiful they are both inside & out. Should have taken a photo of the inside for those who haven't seen the beautiful blue shell that is such a contrast to the speckled outside. This being the season for coloring eggs, I thought it was appropriate to post a photo of nature's handywork.

Happy Easter to you too! The eggs look divine, and they are so tiny :)Here, they are prepared in vinaigrette and sold in most supermarkets and delis. They are a quick fortifying meal I guess :)

Hi Fran!

I saw these at the market as well but I didn't buy them. They're so cute!

I hope you had a lovely Easter ... and hope to see you back blogging soon!

Love the picture. Had a lot of quails egg growing up. I often do not buy them as when I do I can't stop myself from eating them uncontrollably. Shame on me.Hope you had a lovely Easter.

Wow. I've only ever eaten these as raw yolks on sushi. Never saw the shell. So there's an outside shell that's speckled and an inside one that's blue?
