Marco - Great Mexican Food & Ultimate Dippy Eggs

Happy Thanksgiving To Everyone

While in Marco, we were invited to lunch by friends Meakin and Sam (My Carolina Kitchen) at their home in Fort Myers and while I had my camera, not a single shot was taken.  This is their first season in this home having moved from a condo and they are in the process of updating and getting it to their liking - something they actually enjoy doing.

They served up a delicious Mexican Chicken Soup using a recipe from Ina Garten served with toppings of tortilla chips, sour cream, cheese, and avocado.  Check out this link back to Sam’s blog for the recipe and photos.  Since I took no photos, I stole this one from Sam’s post.

The meal was served poolside on a nice Florida day and I now know for sure where to go in SW Florida for a great meal.  Thanks for a wonderful afternoon guys, it’s always so much fun to spend time with you.

Earlier in the week, Bev had bought some double yolked eggs from a farm stand while attending a crafts fair in Goodland and they were on the breakfast menu the next morning.  It took only a minute of thinking to decide that with four total yolks, they needed to be turned into sunny-side-up dippy eggs, sided with a pathetic little piece of leftover sausage (ignore it) and a slice of toasted rustic bread from the farmers market.

There was so much yolk I had to be careful not to run out of bread before egg - I'd like to know how many times I've had this meal in my lifetime - I'm sure it's a pretty big number.

Photos best if enlarged by clicking on them.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.


11/18 – 11/19/13 meal dates


  1. It was so good to see you guys on your trip to Florida this year and we were thrilled that you drove up from Marco to spend the afternoon with us. Those are some fine looking eggs. I didn't realize you could buy double-yolk eggs. Guess I thought double-yolks "just happened" sometimes. Goes to show what I know!

    Meakin and I wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving.

  2. All of the eggs were double yolked? I remember getting a double-yolked egg once. Randomly out of a dozen eggs from the store. Didn't realize you could purposely raise them like that? I'm so confused. :) And yes, that sausage is a little pathetic. So nice you could visit with Sam and Meakin. Have a great Thanksgiving Larry and Bev.

  3. I can often find double yolked eggs by the dozen at local farm stands. Moe would love your breakfast.

    And I would be happy with a big bowl of your soup.


  4. Happy Thanksgiving Larry and Bev. I know you must have had a great time with Sam and Meakin.

  5. Happy Thanksgiving Larry. Love those double yolks!

  6. Wonder if we could find some of those double yoked eggs - Jim would love them. Wondered what dippy eggs were - but I think I'd need more than one piece of toast.

  7. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

    We are in FL with George's son and family enjoying Thanksgiving. They are cooking a FEAST for us… YUM.

    Looks like you all ate well also in FL..


  8. Looks as though you had a wonderful lunch with friends! It is always wonderful to enjoy a good meal in the company of those we enjoy. .....and, I had no idea that you could purchase double yolked eggs..I thought you just randomly got one....which is kindof like winning the lottery!

  9. Happy Thanksgiving! Thinking about it myself, I cannot imagine the number of times I have eaten my over easy eggs with toast-It is one of my favorite breakfast foods.

    Very cool that you got to spend time with Sam and her husband. I know you guys have become good friends over the years.


  10. If Sam prepared lunch for you, I know it was delicious. :)

  11. I've only had double yolked eggs a few times. It looks like a perfectly delicious breakfast to me!

  12. I've never seen double yoke eggs packaged together purposefully like that, we've just randomly found them in dozens of regular eggs. I'll have to ask our farmer about that. For what he is charging we SHOULD get double yokes!


I appreciate and enjoy your comments
