    So hubby made an awful lot of clattering noises in the kitchen this morning while making himself breakfast. As I stumbled to the coffeemaker (NOT a morning person) he cheerfully told me his coworker finally brought him in a dozen farm eggs ... although it was down to ten already. He warned me to get some while the getting's good because he has no intention of being any more restrained than the first time when he tore through half a dozen in two mornings [​IMG] Oh yeah, I will definitely be getting layers once we move ... I'll bet he even helps frame the coop to hurry it along.

    Sounds like you need to move so hubby can build that coop and get his fresh eggs!

    LOL. I guess Navy food must've been a little better than Army food. Of course, my DH thinks Denny's eggs are good.

    One of the cadences the drill sergeants taught us early in the cycle:
    G.I. beans and G.I. gravy -
    Gee I wish I joined the Navy!


    Then again, it could be a difference in standards as I have known some Marines and a couple sailors who would eat things that would make my chow-hound dog tuck tail and run! [​IMG] Most of the army cooks I knew could all whip up some tasty food in a civilian kitchen ... every one of them claimed they were constrained by army regs in the mess hall kitchens. [​IMG]
