Ricotta gnudi from Stir: Mix ricotta, 2 eggs (book calls for 1, but I used 2 because mixture seemed dry), a little flour and Parmesan. Form into small dumplings, score with a fork as you might peanut butter cookies. Freeze for an hour then boil. Serve with Barbara Lynch's basic marinara sauce (tomatoes, red pepper flakes, onion, garlic). Easy. Stupendous. Not a scrap left over for the chickens.

Speaking of which, the chickens have taken to hiding their eggs. In the last two days we've found 24 eggs hidden around the yard, including a cache of thirteen in the overgrown tomato patch. Later, I found the bantam hen sitting on a clutch of 9 tiny eggs on top of the coop. I know they don't harbor salmonella, but how long have they been sitting out there? Weeks? Months?

  1. yum! I love gnudi. Sometimes its the simplest things that are the most delicious.

  2. You'll know how long if you check the yolk. The average gestation period is 3 weeks, so it can't be months. If you can hold up the eggs to the light and check the yolk, you'll have a pretty good chance of recognizing if it's yolk or chick. You can estimate approximately an egg per day, so the bantam's oldest egg is just over a week. Does that help?

  3. My mom keeps chickens and they hide eggs all the time. When she finds a nest she just disposes of the eggs. One time she left the old eggs sitting on the porch and the golden retriever ate them, shells and all.

  4. I've always wondered what chickens are thinking when we collect their eggs. Is it like "NOOOOOOOOOO, my baby!" Or "oh, thank god, I am so not ready to be a mother right now."
