chickens and eggs
so to continue with food week...
today i made plättar, which are swedish crepes. i made them with TLC eggs. i remember reading in the omnivore's dilemma that even supposedly free-range chickens eating organic feed often are really not free-range. their "range" is so tiny and their living conditions so crappy, that the chickens don't opt to go out to the little patch of outdoors. the organic eggs i used to eat were from just this sort of place. recently i started buying TLC eggs at rainbow grocery. they are the best eggs i've tasted from rainbow. i looked them up; check out the farm digs. pretty sweet.
here is some info about how free-range can be deceptive. WARNING: sad photo of chickens at top of post.
