Eggs are versatile little things aren’t they? They can be scrambled, fried, poached, baked, coddled, boiled, even eaten raw (yuck) their versatility is endless.
I always have eggs on hand and I almost always have some hard boiled eggs in the fridge to grab for lunch.
So, yesterday as I was doing my morning chores I saw I needed to make some. No problem, I grabbed a pot and a few eggs, ran some water over them, set them on the stove, started the timer and continued on with my morning routine.
A little while later, as I sat at my computer, I heard a strange POP.
Hmmm…….. that was an odd noise. Then I started to smell something.....peculiar …..
Husband was making bread in the machine and my first thought was maybe something had gone awry and it was popping circuit breakers. Then I heard another POP, and another, and the smell was getting stronger so I got up to investigate.
I entered the kitchen just in time to watch in fascination as a white blob arced across the room!
Oh, SHIT!!! I TOTALLY forgot about the eggs!!
I was so distracted by what I was doing I didn’t even hear the timer when it went off!
I quickly grabbed the pot, threw it in the sink and ran cold water over it but it was too late.
I have to say I have never seen burned egg SHELLS before……….
I sometimes worry I will run out of things to post about…..
I see that may not be the real problem here…..lol
