Are you ready for an egg-celent DIY egg Halloween costume (OH YES I DID just say that)?
I’m obsessed with eggs. I eat them EVERY single day no matter what. I keep hard boiled eggs in my fridge for a quick snack or a simple breakfast on the go. It keeps me full and it’s healthy! I also love scrambled, over easy, egg burritos, egg sandwiches and omelettes. I’m seriously such a true egg lover! When this egg costume idea popped into my head I knew it was meant to be.
This is my kind of costume making! All you have to do is cut out a circle of yellow felt and hot glue it to your dress. You could also sew it onto your dress if you are handy with a sewing machine. And if you don’t want to ruin your dress you could even fabric tape it on or pin it.
Then grab a spatula and some cute matching yellow shoes and you are good to go!
I also thought it would be cute to put pink blush all over your face and be a “fried” egg. I have another costume to compliment the egg costume perfectly, it will be up next week! So stay tuned!
Deviled Egg: Add Devil Horns
Speaking of eggs…Let’s have a chat!
I got invited by the Ohio Poultry Association to attend an EGGstravaganza where they taught us all about eggs. We even got to meet farmers who educated us about CAGE FREE vs CAGED chickens and eggs. It was very informative.
The farmers said that they feel like there isn’t that much difference between the two. Did you know a lot of farmers have CAGED and NON CAGED barns on their farms? (I always figured non caged chickens were only on seperate farms run by those who believed in animal rights.)
They said all eggs are hormone free (if you see a HORMONE FREE stamp on a carton it’s a marketing technique), and even caged chickens very RARELY ever need to be given an antibiotic (like once every 2 years do they have a reason to give one.) They said they are glad that we as consumers have a choice to buy caged/non caged eggs and that they will always supply whatever we as consumers want.
To me it seemed they actually preferred the caged method. They have strict rules that help protect chickens from being in unsatisfactory conditions. And they have so many quality checks that come through that I will never wonder if I’m making a good, healthy choice getting regular eggs at my grocery store. I feel confident after meeting with them, that there isn’t that much difference between the two. They even said that they felt the caged bird was in a more sanitary condition because they aren’t walking around in their own poop. I would love to talk to a Farmer who only does cage free chickens to hear their thoughts. The great thing about America is we get to choose!
It was all very interesting! They did mention that there are more omega 3’s in some of those specialty eggs, so that is one difference. But there are many other ways to get that. So if it’s worth it to you to spend the extra $1 per dozen to get more omega 3’s then you should totally go for it. But at least know you are NOT settling in buying regular eggs! : ) YAY!
Guess what? I buy two 18 packs of eggs every WEEK! I told you we like eggs.
I was so impressed by the farmers and how much they care about the animals, the way of life, and providing the best quality product! GO FARMERS!!
Now I challenge you to go make an epic DIY egg costume and eat a scrambled egg!
