pouring without snoring


There is probably a version of this song in other languages, it has to be so because I find so many other things have cross reference why not a rain song - you know the one "its raining its pouring the old man is snoring..." that one. Raining like a mofo is whats up.


Remember the quail egg? Well it showed up 18 more times, funny having a dozen and a half quail eggs that come across as an egg but size up like a sample, so you end up sampling a lot, 18 times to be exact.


More than half were eaten with the sushi, raw with rice, wasabi and nori all dipped in sweetened soy sauce, but that happened late and there are no photos to prove it only half as many eggs. This, though, is a deliciously subtle variance on an escarole soup, a little carrot a little random green leafy vegetable from chinatown and a little quail egg. Tasty, healthy, low fat, light and filling - what more can you ask for? Now there are only 4 quail eggs left.


Speaking of eggs, wanna see my latest omelete? Four cheese, green onion, sauteed portabello, tomato and truffle oil delight.


Or perhaps some poached bad boys with hollandaise, sauteed criminis and ajvar?


Own the egg because I know I do.

here i sit with my boring latte dying for the motivation to get up and make some hash browns. and now I've come across your photos--life just ain't fair. LOL

Eggs and more eggs, oh my! Do quail eggs have the same amount of cholesterol as chicken eggs? ;) Great pics!

papawow said...

I've only had quail eggs with sushi, never cooked. I wonder if they have any different flavor than chicken eggs. I've never had raw chicken eggs with sushi to compare them to. Great photos too, by the way, I love the mosaic at the top.

LK: that is a great idea....

I have never experienced a quail eggs. You used your egss so creatively-the presentation is beautiful. I have no doubt that I would enoy all these meals.

btw, I hope it stops raining in NY soon. Spring is begging to arrive.

Marjie said...

The raining like a mofo stayed east of us. The clouds and wind did not. Your eggs look good.

Jenn said...

This one eggy-licious post you got here.

Devon said...

It's raining where I am too. I only have three eggs in the fridge. Do I bake or make an omelet like you?

Barb Rolek said...

Why not hard cook some eggs and mix them into sauteed cabbage and bake them in a pie -- Russian style. It's delicious! Check my blog soon for the recipe -- http://easteuropeanfood.about.com.

Hey Christo! Love this post. You always have the best pictures. I peeked at your little egg link and fell for the pink eggs. Being from the south, I have tried,and liked, pickled eggs. I've never seen pink ones, though. Am now scheming . . .
