I had to look that up, but it appears that Aracunas chickens' eggs are blue.

No, I used brown eggs with some chopped spinach and a spoonful of pesto, scrambled. I could have used kale too. Try it; it tastes great!

Sounds good either way, green eggs don't taste different than brown.
The chickens eggs are blue, green, gold, and brown. We used to raise them, when we would give folks eggs they had different reactions.
They were great layers, recall they took longer to start to lay. Guess thats why they are not commonly available.

Best wishes,
MRG

From now on, this is the New Year's Eve meal that we will have: Boneless leg of lamb (2.3 lbs), put kosher salt on it for a few hours, then rinse off, pat dry, and season with garlic and onion powder and KCl. Make about 20 cuts and insert cloves of garlic. Cook on $3 garage sale rotisserie for 1.45 hours. Best roast I've ever eaten.

Mmmm. I've got to try that lamb roast!

I just had a fried egg and grilled sausage with coffee for breakfast and haven't eaten anything else. I'll probably have an apple for supper.

This year I hosted a friend for Christmas dinner. I purchased a stuffed boneless turkey breast from my wonderful local butcher ($37) and roasted it. It turned out perfectly and yielded eight delicious meals with zero waste and no fat, cartilage, etc. No hard work dissecting the bird, and very easy to cook. I now have large quantities of home made frozen cranberry sauce ready for the next turkey!

Similar for me only subbed sweet potatoes for your collard greens. Hopefully the peas gives me the luck I'm looking for.

Lobster bisque for lunch (Costco carries a really nice brand) and chile-flavored baked catfish with spinach souffle for dinner. It's good to be retired!

I do not know if one can turn green from eating olive, but I knew of a man whose skin turned yellow after his voracious consumption of papaya. This condition, called carotenodermia, is usually observed when 30 mg or more of beta-carotene are consumed in a day. Luckily, it's a benign and reversible condition.

I like to see a photo of a green bbamI!

Seems like folks can get an orange tint from eating too many carrots, or so I've heard.

Not long ago I read an article stating it takes more calories to digest/process broccoli than the broccoli has to begin with. Makes me wonder if I would disappear in a cloud of green smoke if I consumed only broccoli for too long....

Here's hoping I don't turn too green...
