Eggland's Best America's #1 Egg [Giveaway]

**Contest Closed**
Winners are #248 ZESTYWONDERLAND & #141 ababe28

For many years now, my family has been exclusively eating Eggland's Best eggs. A lot of people call us egg snobs. Hey, we can't help it if we like the best eggs! I was just reading an article the other day about the old beliefs that eggs were bad for you. Turns out eggs are a nutritious choice and are packed with vitamins and are a good source of protein and Omega 3. Eggs are so versatile and not just a breakfast food. We have eggs at all times of day and it is one of our most common go-to foods. We love them fried, scrambled, in omelets, boiled, deviled and more. As a kid, I ate eggs curried and stewed. I think deviled eggs are my favorite and I make up a tray for every cookout we go to.

Compared to ordinary eggs, each Eggland’s Best large egg contains:
• 25% less saturated fat
• 35% more lutein
• 10 times more Vitamin E
• 3 times more Vitamin B12
• 2 times more Vitamin D
• Double the Omega-3

Random banana story

A couple weekends ago I was in Walmart during the super stupid busy time on a Saturday evening. Of course I know better but the daughter's needed some things so what's a momma to do? We planned to make banana splits that night together as a family. We bought vanilla ice cream, nuts, strawberries, hot fudge sauce, whipped cream... We get through the check-out line only to realize we forgot something. BANANAS. There was no way I was getting back into a 50 foot long line for a few bananas plus I had ice cream in my cart. I ended up driving home to unload my groceries and decided to go to another store for bananas. It dawned on my that at 7:30 pm you might not find any bananas in the produce section. I then came up with a brilliant idea~ Sonic drive-thru. Yeah, they sell bananas. I know I would be spending a buck for each banana but who cares at this point. I just need 2 of them for tonight. My kids made so much fun of me and said that is was so tacky to order bananas from Sonic. So of course I made them ride with me.
I get in the drive-thru and politely ask if they had any fresh bananas. The fella told me that they sure did. I drove up to pay and then was handed my 2 bananas. The freakin things were damn near frozen! There was no turning back at this point. I brought them home and they tasted fine. Will I buy bananas there again? NO. I told you this was a random banana story! BTW, it was DWAYNE that made the big deal about needing bananas. Just thought I would add that in there :)

Do NOT try this!

I purchased the Wendy's Baja Salad for lunch today since the commercials lured me in with all the "fresh" ingredients that they use. Somebody mighta lied. It was AWFUL. I was so disappointed and can't believe I spent $6 on it. I should have taken myself up to Chick-fil-a and I know I would have been happy. How dare Wendy's brag about how improved their salads are. The cheese was not real, it was processed. The lettuce was not green enough. I felt like I had more stems parts than leaves. I was looking forward to the pico de gallo and guacamole. Big #FAIL. This salad was a mess and I would not recommend it to anyone. The end.
