Mayo is easy to make in a blender. You can choose your own oil and use organic eggs.

My chickens get Purina Layena as well as Purina scratch.
They also get table scraps (not meat though).
And I give them watermelon in the summer and hot oats in the winter

And when they are past their prime they get to live out a full retirement.

Truly fresh eggs have a hard shell and a deep almost orange yolk.
They are nearly impossible to peel as hard boiled eggs.

Ah yes.
As someone who ran an egg processing plant with multi-million dollar sales per year, surrounded by over 750K chickens for over 20 years ... and a member of the California Egg Commision ... and a member of the American Egg Board and a member of the United Egg Producers ... I think I know.

If it's any help, Hellmann's/Best Foods is/are made with eggs from free-range chickens.

And, yes. Truly fresh eggs are almost impossible to peel when hard-boiled. But they sure make great fried eggs with those stand-up, orange yolks. My wife loves them. Me? I'm not overly fond of eating premature chickens.

Were they eggs from organic feed, free-range? Just curious.

With a pension? Pulling our leg about the hot oatmeal?

I've tried that and could never get the consistency right. A friend makes it with a wire whisk and it comes out great.

Vegans eat a plant based/grain diet. I posted on 6-15-14 that I'm mostly vegan but eat some fish. You missed the mostly. Occasionally I make beef and chicken broths. I make a great chicken soup put up in jars for my family, who are not vegan or vegetarian. I have never said others should or need to eat the way I do, so your adjective is a bit out of line. Flattered that you follow my posts!

Zugor, glad to hear the 'Burby is not serious. My Sierra eats a left front hub about every five years.

We did lose the brakes on both rigs (mine is a 2005, his a 2004) to New York weather, the brake lines had to be replaced. ALL of them. Runs about a thousand dollars per rig. But they will go another ten years. His will retire to hay and farm duties, and I will trade out of mine into a Yukon when we move.

HappyTexan, I'm with you on butter and eggs, Amen to that. Looking forward to raising our own or buying local when we move. I buy from our neighbor when his are producing but with a family of five they don't have much surplus.

Happy first full day of Spring, y'all!

ahh yes, every good southern girl knows Hellmann's is the best unless you make your own from fresh. Never got into Miracle Whip or Duke's but they have their fans.
