New meaning to "Spanish omelette"


The stamped Large white Israeli eggs are what I normally buy.
See the L on the shell? 
But now during the Jewish High Holidays, the Days of Awe, there are so many festive meals to be cooked inside of just a few weeks that the country apparently ran out of eggs.
I was astounded to open a new carton and find brown eggs!
I examined the Hebrew label and discovered they were imported all the way from Spain!

We have the luxury of choosing in The Netherlands, we can choose white and brown and even coloured . They don't taste different though

There's usually a mix of white and brown eggs here in the stores.

For some reason eggs have to be brown, - is it because I prefer warm and cosy brown hens?

Brown eggs for me please.

Three days in a row of elaborate lunches and dinners? No wonder the country ran out :)

We don't eat red meat in this family, so our protein comes from fish, eggs etc. There is nothing as perfect as scrambled eggs, smoked salmon and spring onions, on challah.

Have a wonderful New Year.

Maybe it is just me , but I can't tell the difference in the taste of a white egg or brown egg
Dina The chickens need to be doing double duty : )

Enjoy your Spanish eggs! And chag sameach to you. They are a lovely shade of brown. I've got some very similar eggs in my fridge right now, but they aren't from Spain.

My son has chickens and some lay blue eggs. We have brown and white eggs here in the grocery store. I've bought both and all chicken eggs seem to taste the same to me.

You ran out of eggs? Wow! That must be like Easter over here, but then again I've never seen them run out of eggs even then.
