Eggs and coffee, hold the bacon

Have I ever mentioned goose eggs? Goose eggs are marvellous for poached eggs. The white is firmer, solider, and there's more of it. The local upscale super failed to have goose eggs last week and I was in withdrawal after barely a month of them. Chicken eggs just aren't the same, and anyway free run chicken eggs are thin-shelled and the yolks tend to break. Goose eggs are thick-shelled and the yolks also tend to break, but the whites make up for it.

The other find is iced Vietnamese coffee made with condensed milk. I'm sure it has as many calories as any Starbux frappucino, with or without whipped cream, but oh does it hit that perfect spot, which Starbux frappucinos don't.
