Be careful what you say around egg whites. Everyone knows they can’t take a yolk.
Why were the eggs running? Because they were afraid of being beaten!
Dear lord, I'm egghausted from these puns. So let’s get down to brass tacks: This Sunday, June 3, is National Egg Day, and Valley restaurants are celebrating by with some truly inspired egg dishes.
Our round-up of the best (half) dozen egg creations (and deals) in Phoenix:
Egg Day Deal, Over Easy
Chef Aaron May’s modern morning diner is celebrating it’s 10-year anniversary with $5 and $1 egg deals on Sunday. Get a traditional one-egg breakfast (egg any style, bacon, hash browns and choice of toast) for $5, or add an egg (any style) to any meal for a buck.
