**Due to this year’s avian flu, eggs are in short supply and very expensive.  I cannot find anyplace that currently has powdered egg in stock.  Walmart will give you the option of signing up for an in-stock alert if you wish to be notified when they hit the shelves again.

Store names provided when I thought they might be helpful in keeping costs down.  If you are having a hard time finding items for the price listed, leave a comment by clicking on the link at the top of the left sidebar and I will give you my pricing info. Pricing is subject to change…as anyone shopping these days can testify!
