What it means to be a dairy princess

Posted

As a dairy princess, I would be proud to represent the dairy farmers of Wayne County.

My duty would be to attend numerous events with the goal of raising awareness of the nutritional value and benefits of dairy products. Wearing the crown and sash of a dairy princess is a great honor and a responsibility.

There are dairy princesses representing every county in Pennsylvania. I would be expected to do presentations at a variety of events, create educational displays, open many events with a “milk toast” and dedicate myself to promoting dairy whenever I  go.

Princesses prepare speeches, presentations,  do radio spots and write newspaper articles. They do their best to remain visible and participate in important community events. They are expected to be educated on dairy matters, submit dairy recipes and always maintain a warm and friendly, respectable appearance.

They represent the very important production of different products in the state of Pennsylvania. As a dairy princess, I hope to do my best to convey my deep appreciation and respect for the dairy farmers of Wayne County, Pennsylvania.

Scrambled Mint Medley

  •  8 large free-range eggs
  • 2 tablespoons double cream
  • 1/4 cup of grated cheese of your choice. This could be Parmesan, Romano, Colby or even feta
  • 30 grams butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic, minced or powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon fresh mint, finely chopped, or dry mint
  • salt and pepper to taste

Wash, clean and chop the mint leaves. If the mint is dried, crumble it into a powder.

Crack the eggs and place in a large bowl.

Whisk eggs together, add cream and cheese and season with salt and pepper. Add garlic powder if using.

In a large nonstick pan, melt the butter and cook the garlic if it is fresh.

When the butter is foaming, add the eggs and cook very gently over low heat, stirring with a wooden spatula or a whisk.

As soon as the scrambled eggs start to come together and are cooked according to your taste, remove them from the heat.

Serve warm and enjoy with toast, a side of hashbrowns or a green salad.
