So how many points is this one?

As many of you may know, Tutu has been having a successful involvement with Weight Watchers online. I've lost almost 40 pounds in the past 18 months. I love not worrying about calories, and not feeling restricted to specific foods or having anything forbidden. I've also been trying to eat more locally and healthily. To that end, last spring I "purchased" a laying hen from our local CSA. My grand-daughter christened "our hen" Martha.  And boyo has Martha been doing a great job.  Yesterday, Mr. Tutu stopped at the farm, picked up a carton of fresh eggs and when he got home, handed me the heaviest carton of eggs I've ever felt.  I almost thought there were goose eggs mixed in.

When I cracked my morning egg into the pan to eat with my bagel thin, I was flabbergasted!!  I'd read about eggs with two yolks, but I'd never seen one.  So here is the egg, two yolks. So if Weight Watchers says each egg=2 points, how many  points do we count for two yolks?

Stay tuned and I'll let you know if any of those other behemoths have more than one yolk!

  1. that egg is making my mouth water! Love my eggs fried, over easy, with wheat toast!

    1. These are the most delicious eggs....always have such a nice deep color. I love them with sourdough toast or oat bran bread.

  2. 40 pounds! And here I am agonizing about how difficult it is to just a couple of pounds! I'm not worthy!

  3. that one is way more than two
