France gets crackin’

On Sunday, you may have read about the sudden, severe shortage of eggs in France and wondered, “Hey, what’s up with that? I thought that France was a big agricultural producer and would have lots of eggs to go around!”

A fair question. But here’s what happened: On Saturday, we went into Gourdon, and had lunch at La Promenade, my recommended spot for lunches and cafés in the town. There I ordered a cheese omelette. Oops! There went one day’s supply of eggs for the entire country (since then, the supply has been replenished). Here’s what my omelette looked like (and yes, I ate the whole thing).

How many eggs gave up their lives for this?
