People are always telling me I should write a children’s book. I’m not that together, but Terry Golson is! Terry Golson is a professional cook and food writer. I’ve had her Farmstead Egg Cookbook for a long time–see it gracing my kitchen window in this post from 2008. She makes the most adorable books! She’s also something of a “chicken celebrity” because of her popular HenCam. (She has a GoatCam, too!)
I didn’t know all that. I just had her cute little egg cookbook. Then one day Martha Stewart was doing an episode on chickens and I saw her on there talking about her Tillie Lays An Egg book. AND THEN. The other day, someone asked a question about chickens, and Terry–who knows a lot more about chickens than I do–left a comment on my blog! IT WAS ALMOST LIKE MARTHA WAS HERE. Anyway! That was a gigantic mistake because, of course, I pounced right on top of her, tied her up, and locked her in a closet until she agreed to give away a copy of Tillie Lays An Egg to one of you! (“Unlike the other hens at Little Pond Farm, Tillie isn’t one to wait her turn to lay her eggs. And she’s certainly not one to stay cooped up all day. Off she goes!”) Okay, honestly, I just begged a little bit, and she was nice enough to agree. (I’m so excited!)
