it started with the italian meatballs. two eggs into the mix. then we had salt and herb encrusted onaga fish. recipe calls for 5 eggs whites. the next day with our five egg yolks we made soft yolk and lemon ricotta ravioli, using another egg to seal the dough. next morning with leftover ricotta we made lemon ricotta pancakes, which required 4 eggs and lasted two breakfasts.
