Eggs Proverbs: an Eggs...citing way to Celebrate Easter

Everyone gets egg-cited when Easter comes along and Fine Dining Lovers are no different.

So what better way to get everyone into the Easter spirit and bring different egg loving cultures together than some egg-samples of eggy proverbs from around the world.

Better an egg today than a hen tomorrow (Italian)

Don’t put all your eggs in one basket (English)

Don’t count your eggs before they are laid (Italian)

If you want your eggs hatched, sit on them yourself (Haitian)

One bad egg can spoil the whole basket (German)

You can’t unscramble an egg (American)


The FDL twitter community also provided some great eggisms, here is a selection of the best:

@illphil111: You can't make an omelette without breaking eggs

@Eggsotique: Eggspect the uneggspected

@Phil_Lauder: Don't put all your eggs in one basket

@foody_tweets: I'm walking on egg shells
 

There was also some great egg words put forward by @eggsotique, who we predict is a bit of a yolker: eggspensive, eggspand, eggsagerate and eggshausted...

There it is - if you have some proverbs or egg related words to add to the list please comment on the bottom of the page, you can also forward them to us on twitter @finedininglover and we'll add them to this page for you.
