Dh went through the eggs in the store to find the oldest for our deviled eggs! Never done that before, lol! He found some that said Nov 23, the rest had a date halfway through Dec. Just don't tell the inlaws, they might not get it and think DH married a freak! Actually he'll probably tell them all himself, and make us both look like freaks! He just doesn't think.
And yes, eggs are sold refrigerated here in the US. We are taught that you will freaking DIE if you eat unrefrigerated eggs! I guess they have been lying, and my grandma was right? That just figures since the USDA (US Department of Agriculture) is a government organization. Never trust the government! Now I feel bad for trashing all those eggs my grandma gives me every year. Do you guys eat raw eggs in protein shakes or mayonnaise? We are told not to unless they are pasteurized. Same with milk. Raw milk is a big No-No.
And that stringy thing connecting the egg parts is normal. My moms boyfriend is sickened by it and removes it. I tell him I do too when I make his cheesecakes. Yeah, right! I've got time for that!
