National Don't Put All Your Eggs in One Omelet Day

"It may be the cock that crows, but it is the hen that lays the eggs." - Margaret Thatcher

It's National Don't Put All Your Eggs in One Omelet Day!

I'm not sure I would anyway, Food Gods, because that would be one enormous (and seriously protein-erific) omelet. But thanks for the reminder!

Today is all about turning the idiom "don't put all your eggs in one basket" into foodie speak. It's the concept of not investing your entire self or resources, money, or attention on one single event, opportunity, or person. If you put "all your eggs" into a "basket" you'll have withheld nothing for (yourself or) future possibilities. And, if you put all your physical eggs into one omelet you'll have no eggs leftover to make another if you screw up or to create other foods entirely.

Lesson learned?

Happy National Don't Put All Your Eggs in One Omelet Day!
