Easter Egg
Today is Easter, so I thought a hard-boiled egg for breakfast would be just the thing to celebrate.

Last week, there were a few eggs in my fridge, and (since I rarely cook) I was afraid they would go bad before I used them. So when SC was over the other day, I asked if he would hard-boil them for me (because I am clueless enough in the kitchen that even hard-boiling eggs makes me nervous). He obligingly hard-boiled all of the eggs in my fridge.

This morning, a week later, I pulled an egg out of the refrigerator to eat. A tiny little alarm went off in my head when I noticed there were two different colors of eggs in the carton, but I ignored it. I sprinkled some salt on a plate, set the egg on the it, and took it into the other room to eat.

I tapped the egg on the plate to start it, then pressed down with my fingers to crumple the shell, making it easy to peel. splut You guessed it: the egg was raw. My fingers were covered in goop, and I had a raw egg sitting in salt and shell on my plate. Yuck!

I washed the whole mess down the disposal and had a roll for breakfast instead.

I did end up having a hard-boiled egg with lunch, after carefully performing a "spin test" to identify which eggs were raw and which were cooked.

Happy Easter to all, and be careful when you open your eggs!

Where did the raw egg come from?

You know because SC was supposed to hard boil all of them.

jebra left it (and another) when he came over to experiment with his souffle-making skills.

did you carefully "tap tap tap" the salt on the egg? or is 'stine still the only person that does such a thing? *grin*

happy easter bunny day (:

hahahaha! Nope, even 'stine doesn't do that that anymore, or so she claims.

I sprinkled salt on the plate and then rolled the egg in it.

How ... how can I ever make this up to you? What can I do or say to convince you to forgive me?

[glances out window briefly, then looks pleadingly at Renniekins]

I ... I can cook for you again. I'll make it right!

[drops to knees]

I swear I had no idea those eggs were still there! I'll ... I promise ... next time, no leftover ingredients!

Okay. That would definitely earn forgiveness.
