Chicken & Egg

So I was just reading Abbey's post about the book Chicken and Egg, and I thought - hey! I wrote about that, too. But I realized as I was looking through my archives that I had written it, but for some reason never posted it. I'm not sure why? But anyway, here's a really old post about a really great book:

The last weekend in April, I got to go to such a cool event.



The author of the book Chicken and Egg was at the Bibelot on Grand Ave. doing a book signing, and she had one of her chickens with her!



She also had yummy treats made from some of the recipes in the book.



AND, best of all, I got to hold the chicken! She is a Silver Wyandotte named Coco.



This was absolutely thrilling for me! I love chickens, and I really, really want to own some. It was great talking to Janice (the author) because she's local, and so she had really great advice for owning chickens in Minnesota.

So that's all I had written in my draft. Maybe I had been planning on adding more, but now I can't think what that would have been. As Abbey says, the book is gorgeous. And you really should go check out what she made from it. Delicious!

  4. That is a beautiful chicken. I'd love to have some too! In fact a group of people recently petitioned the local government to allow them in the city of Toronto, but they had no luck, ... for now anyway.
