I Love Eggs

There's been a lot of anti-Eggs hate literature out there over the years, so I just wanted to go on the record as being objectively pro-Eggs. (NOTE: I know, it's not logically possible to be "objectively" pro-something. But such is the nature of our political discourse lately; it now somehow makes sense to infer that no outside forces influenced my decision to love eggs. It just happened that way.) Omelettes are great. The over-easy egg: great. Frittatas, the egg's answer to meatloaf: great.

And let's not forget foods that aren't egg-based, but are merely enhanced by the power of eggs. Bacon, for example. And you can't even have caesar salad without both egg in the salad, and egg yolks in the dressing itself (NOTE TO J: you were right, i checked with Tamburri this weekend. It is egg yolks, not egg whites. This fact does not, however, make you the boss of me.).

Honestly, I don't understand what all this anti-egg hysteria is about, but I'm not going to be intimidated. I will continue to enjoy whatever eggs I please: Chicken, salmon, orangutan, whatever. Yeah.
