To support Unlock a phone, Unlock a Chicken and for 5 minutes of fun, we thought we’d have a Free range egg and spoon race.  Sadly, a few eggs got broken but the majority will go in to Omelettes (let us know if you have any good recipes).


Ready, steady...




Congratulations to Claire for clocking up the fastest time and clearly showing she has the greatest ability to balance an egg on a spoon across 100 meters.




After a quick Google - The Sun  report it’s the most popular sports days event and give some tips on how to win.  Wish I'd seen these before taking part. Smiley Happy





Here is a great way to make a real fluffy big omelette....


2 or 3 eggs beaten then 2 slices of bread ( crusts removed )....break the bread up into small pieces and add to the beaten will make a thick mixture.Add a little pepper and some cheese to the mixture and mix..

Empty the mixture into a frying pan lightly oiled and spred so its even in the pan...when bottom is cooked put the pan in the grill to cook the top ..and watch it rise
