I'm totally confused now. I need to make a list. :oops:
It's my fault, Bob. A squab is a small pigeon but I have confused it with a similar word referring to small fish & now I can't find the quote so can't totally sort the mess out. At some point I will find it & there will be this totally random post...:gig

Some time ago @rjohns39 & @Grammy60 gifted me this lovely handmade basket.
Most of the people I regularly gift eggs to hang onto their cartons for me & I divvy the eggs up in such a way everyone gets a mix of large ~small, blue, white & brown eggs.
I recently ran out of cartons so have been putting my 3~4 dozen in the basket & just asking people to take what they can use from it. It has been an interesting exercise in people watching.

Who ever gets 1st choice usually takes all the biggest eggs but the 7th Day Adventists always take the brown eggs first. The guy with the daschunds always takes all the blue eggs ~ as does the chef. The small white eggs are least popular of all & whoever is last tends to get left with those.

They all taste the same. :confused:
Everyone throws the shells away.:idunno

So who has a preference?

Pretty basket and lovely willow pattern plates!
I can see wanting eggs of similar sizes (eg for baking) but funny that people would be so picky when you are gifting eggs!

Yep. I don't know any of them well enough to ask but I do think it's odd. And one only really needs a couple of eggs the same size for baking, so a mix shouldn't be a huge problem... :idunno

I love my willow pattern! :loveMy favourite Aunt had these when I was growing up & I finally have my own set! I love Blue & White china. I also like it's rather bizarre origins. The designers invented this whole star crossed lovers story & designed their china around that but for ages people thought the story was actually true... :lau oops.
