Sainsbury's large eggs.
« on: January 31, 2022, 16:21 »
Bought a dozen large eggs from Sainsbury's,  just as a matter of interest I weighed them and all but one was undersized.  Large eggs should be between 63g to 73g, all but one were undersize so what to do about a complaint?  :mad:

Cheers,  Tony.

'Large' eggs seem to have shrunk over the years, but as you say it's about weight rather than size.

To complain successfully, you would need to prove your weighing scales were accurate to within less than a gram (unlikely with normal kitchen scales I suspect.  :unsure:)
Sow your seeds, plant your plants. What's the difference? A couple of weeks or more when answering possible queries!

One of the best things about being an orang-utan is the fact that you don't lose your good looks as you get older

The question is where to find chapter and verse (legalese) about size of egg prior to confronting Sainsbury's management?

Cheers,  Tony.

Always up for a challenge...

I bought Mrs Growster a Kenex digital spoon a year or so ago, and it's supposed to be accurate to 0.1 gram...

Three Tesco large eggs range from 55.6g - 72.00g - 76.9g...!

I don't know why I bought it, as most good cooks never measure anythhing anyway as far as I know!

We started doing that Mrs Pea, when a chum's daughter started selling her own flock's eggs several years ago!

Trouble was, we had three bad ones in a week or so, as she couldn't keep up with collection, and we had to stop as nobody wants to face that issue so often...

As my dear grandmother said when I was a mini-growster, 'Never smell an egg'!

It's no surprise that the chickens are disgruntled. They keep asking for a raise in wages, but the farmers say no. Their salary is chicken feed compared to what other animals on the farm are getting.

Aww thats a shame Mr G, nothing like a really fresh egg.
With just 5 girls keeping us supplied I dont have enough to sell on but the new girls eggs are still on the small side but last week we got a whopper, turned out to be a double Yolker which is always a treat

Our hen pen is well on its way to being finished then we're off to the auctions to get a couple of hens and maybe a guinea fowl. Can't wait to have fresh eggs again.
I work very hard so don't expect me to think as well.

Can anyone solve this eternal argument I have with Mrs Growster please...

Was it Hen Len, or Henny Penny?

Goose Loose, or Goosey Loosey?

When I was four, it was definitely the first one in the list...

Absolutely certain as I live and breath!

Interesting point Growster - a quick Gurgle told me
 
Quote
The oldest reference to loosey-goosey I could find was from 1943, but then I discovered that Goose Loose and Goosey Loosey go back much, much farther.
Goose Loose was a character in the story of Chicken Little of the sky is falling fame. Most of the characters in that folk tale had names that rhymed. There was Henny Penny, Ducky Lucky, Foxy Loxey, and so on, and in some accounts, Chicken Little was even called Chicken Licken. In one of the earliest English tellings, The Remarkable Story of Chicken Little by John Greene Chandler in 1840, the character was Goose-Loose, and then later they all got their -ey endings, and Goose-Loose became Goosey-Loosey, but in some cases Goosey-Poosey, hinting that the rhyming was more important than the meaning.
