Lots of protien products this week. How long does all the eggs last in your house?

The eggs usually last us two weeks. We eat at least one meal a week that is egg based which is about 12-14 eggs for all of us. The pork is just one meal (with leftovers) but the size of hamburger I got will probably last us four weeks after I repackage and freeze it.

I have no idea what day it is because Hubby took Tuesday off too. Wed was Monday and today (TR) is Tuesday..... We are supposed to meet friends for breakfast on Sat and I'm afraid I won't show up until Monday of next week!!!
