Kitchen Tip--- Egg Freshness

My hubby is on a protein kick. He's been eating eggs for breakfast every day, eggs for snack and occasionally I even sneak them in for dinner. Needless to say we buy a lot of eggs. Whenever I need to check the freshness I simply place them in a bowl of water (about 4 inches). Eggs that stay on the bottom are fresh. If it floats it's past it's prime and should be thrown away. Quick and easy, and it calms my paranoid brain. (I am terrified of cracking open a rotten egg. yuck!)
