Happy Egg Month!

Well hello May!
In case you were wondering which month is the glorified National Egg Month, I've got the answer! Why it's May! So why is it May and not say, April (when most eggs are sold in America thanks to the Easter season)? Well apparently, after Easter the demand for eggs goes down, but the supply is still high, so beginning in May eggs are usually cheaper than they are the rest of the year.

In order to celebrate National Egg Month, I thought I'd give you a few fun egg related items to chew over...

I'll start things off with this delightful Timey Egg Timer. I mean, come on, his name is "Timey" and he's an egg, with a beak (so it's like a chicken), isn't he adorable? This three-minute (perfect for a soft-boiled egg) egg timer is available for $3.50. He also has a few friends like Whiskie Egg Whisk and Wedgey Egg Slicer.

A couple of more "egg-cellent" items after the break, so

These adorable Gummi Fried Eggs are fun to look at, but from what I understand they taste fantastic (I've even heard that they're creamsicle flavored) too. $20 for 2 pounds.

Did you know that you needed an egg piercer? You can use a needle and a steady hand, but many people prefer a simple egg piercer. This one is plastic and you gently press the egg down in order to release the pin. It's perfect to prevent breakage during boiling, or for emptying the eggs without breaking the shell. This one runs $2.99 and can be switched to a locked position for safety.

that egg piercer is pretty hard-core... my mom had one when i was a kid and i pierced a finger-bone with it! we have timey too, he is perfect for my sister to time her teeth brushing (she's 7).

I think you should make a post about egg molds, YumSugar. Bento boxes (they're basically Japanese lunch boxes, but it's more detailed than that) have become a new obsession of mine, and when I saw one with an egg in the shape of a star, I got so excited! has a tutorial on how to use them...check it out!

Yay! My 7-year-old step-daughter loves that line of egg gadgets (a la "Timey" and "Wedgie"). She has a whole collection. Her current fav is "Lengthy" the egg-shaped tape measure. FYI, "Mashy" the egg masher from the same collection is great. I use it all the time for egg salad, but it also works well for mashing avocado for guacamole, and bananas for banana bread!
