I remember when eggs were more expensive and precious than they are now. I have a Betty Crocker cookbook full of recipes that are “normal” or offer richer versions with extra eggs. Eggs mean the end to hunger, fertility, good luck, fullness, or even mistakes, as in you can’t make an omlette without breaking some eggs.
One of my favorite pieces from our current Instant Noodles is the piece “Sometimes an Egg,” by Alice Romano. It evokes so many thoughts and feelings for me; it’s satisfying, like an egg. I like mine sunny side up too.
