Expiration date facing you.....

Eggs expire? Who knew? I go through them so fast, there is never a chance of them going bad...

This thread is making me hungry.

Had fried left-over mashed potatoes and eggs already this morning... That's one egg to bind the taters and two to lay up alongside...

Yeah... nothing better than finding a rotten egg and throwing it at your brother... Not your sister though... They hurt when you pitch em, and she'll go crying to mom.

D.  The question says you have 4 eggs left, which implies you've already used 8, and an OCD person would use eggs the correct way - start at one end of the carton and work toward the other end.  You wouldnt just pull them out Willy-nilly from the carton.
My wife and I always go use them from both ends to keep the load in the middle balanced. It's not really OCD it's just habit.

I don't do expiration date on eggs.  If they don't stink or have an off color, they're good to go.  ;}

yep.

A little holiday egg trivia.  Old eggs peel better than new eggs.  I learned this while living in TN where one can actually get older eggs.  I was amazed that eggs that had been left in the fridge for two weeks would easily make gorgeous deviled eggs.

Moved back to Texas... two month old eggs don't peel well.  Eggs here are too damned fresh.

I actually knew that - My general use cackle-berries are free range and fresh, but I actually buy eggs to boil, because they peel better... and that dash of vinegar thing actually works to keep em from cracking in the boil too.

I eat a lot of pickles, so I always have a bunch of pickle juice around... Pickled eggs are awesome.

I bought a big crock pot a few weeks ago and started a whole ham in it at about 5 AM this morning. The house is starting to smell hammy.

Putting onions, taters, carrots and celery in with the ham.

Other people use a ham bone for boiled dinner but I don't screw around. I use the whole damn ham.

You and me, both.  I buy them in the 5-dozen packages and have trouble keeping them long enough to make them easy to peel for deviled eggs.

We enjoy pickled "cackleberries" around here as well.  Now I am hungry.

I'll say again... Do a dozen in bread and butter pickle juice... Make em deviled by the standard pickle-relish style recipe... Except substitute mayo with Arby's Horsey Sauce (one packet per egg). Best deviled eggs ever.

Whichever one is closer to my hand. That's why I said it wasn't OCD.  :laugh:

I am by myself, but I easy go through 3 dozen a week... A dozen to boil (and pickle if I can), 2 eggs every morning (makes for 14 more), and the rest go away in cooking .... Gotta use an egg wash to get flour on whatever I'm throwing in the oil, if you know what I mean...

@Freya

Challah bread!  I haven't had that in quite a while, but I love it.  At a job I used to have, a friend and I used to buy a loaf of that stuff and eat it during the afternoon, when we got hungry.
