I always mess up boiled eggs! Since the dawn of my boiling egg times I have been searching for
The one technique that would give me the best results with the least amount of impact on time and energy! I have found it and recommend it! it works and I have to thank Windy’s Sukiyaki-Japanese Sushi Restaurant site for leading to the path of boiled egg – Thank you! righteousness.
Boiled Egg Game Changer!
I bought a couple Minneola oranges at Trader Joes yesterday and they are so sweet! There is an unconscious personal preference to eat oranges as my staple fruit with every meal that had prevailed for too long.
So I changed up my ways and have been eating fruit such as Anjou pears, Pink Lady apples, Korean Asian pears. All of which are not as sweet as this tasty orange! It’s good switch things up! What a nice sweet treat!
My new coworker told me the best thing this last Monday!
“I have a chicken coop. Do you eat eggs?”
Talk about words to make a day! I love fresh chicken eggs with there dark sunset yolks!
My wonderful coworker has 15 chickens and all are in egg producing years! Score! Her chickens lay the prettiest eggs in colors of green, brown, and white.
Breakfast was most enjoyable with a fried egg, toast and a cup of strong coffee!
Thinking I had found a treasure at my Grammy’s house, at some point in my childhood, I took what I thought was a heaping tablespoon of sugar and dumped it all over my cornflakes or shredded wheat..or something of that bland realm of cereal that my mother would allow me to have eaten even though there were Sugar Smacks with that damn green frog just mocking me in plane sight!
They were for Grandpa only.
I have yet to make such a monstrous mistake ever again. I would like to be a fly on my grandparents flowered, eggshell colored wallpaper, and be able to look out on my past self as the delight…
……..then disgust and removal of my briny breakfast,
……….and then finally dismay at my wasted moment of sugary cereal. I could never get it back.
But then, I of course did also hold the “secret knowledge” of the hidey hole in the cupboard above the stove that usually housed chocolate of some variety or another. Morning saved.
Sparkling Sugar for Future Baking Projects
I had a time this weekend to make my lunch on Saturday, so I thought I would make a pasta with some chicken sausage and use a bit sauce that I made from pan dripping a few days previous and froze.
um…….yeah…..I love sauce….
I used a medium shell Pasta and cooked them until aldente. While they were cooking I cut up some baby bok choy and half a small shallot. I was really trying to make a single portion. I pan fried the onion with a very small amount of pancetta. I didn’t add any garlic. I had to go to a party later and I didn’t want to have the fearful halitosis.
The chicken sausage was cooked so that it was heated through, and then I tossed in the bok choy leaves along with the sauce that I had let defrost a bit. I let that all come together and then removed the pasta saving the water just just in case I let the sauce reduce too much. Tossed the pasta for a few turns of the and then I placed it over a bed of romaine lettuce.
I was pleased with my lunch result. I made a bit too much so I ended up taking some with me to work, but I zapped it at work to warm it up and it kept nicely.
