The Egg & I

Remember the old days when it was almost a sin to eat one, all of the “bad for you components”. Well times have changed and the fitness guru’s push them on us. So now I have become quite fond of the hard-boiled egg and cook up a batch every week. Here is my way…

I usually cook up 5 or 6 at a time, start with boiling my water, when water is ready carefully with a big spoon drop into water, set timer for 10 minutes. While waiting I prepare a bowl with ice, when timer dings pull eggs out and place in bowl. There they sit for at least 10 minutes or until completely cool. I dry eggs off, place in a dry bowl and store in frig. Here is the secret to the perfect egg, the ice bath. It slightly shrinks the egg from the shell while flash cooling and makes them a cinch to peel, making for a beautiful egg. I use large brown Organic Eggs & a small pan for the 5 eggs. As far as the cooking goes you will need to adjust to what size eggs you use to how many you cook.Here’s to no more hard to peel eggs!

Tip #2- Save the water that you boil your eggs in and when it is cool enough pour onto your garden plants. The protein that comes off the cooked eggs is supposed to be good for them, so I do it and they don’t complain 🙂

Nutrition summary:

  1. Hi Mel,
    I just joined this, but it is all new to me. But I have been interested in blogging ever since I saw the movie about Julia Child. Food Network is my favorite channel. It said that this page you have is blogging, but I don’t know how to really access it or go to it unless I see something you post and I click on it. Maybe you can let me know when you have time, I am sure it is just a click away so I will keep working on it. Your trip to Louisiana sounds great, I know you will enjoy. Love, Cyndi

    1. Hi Cyndi, It’s really easy, go to WordPress.com and it will walk you thru it. It does take a little time as it did for me, you have to play around with it and there is a 24/7 support you can ask questions. I have been doing here and there for over a year and there is a lot I have to still learn.I just do it for fun when I have the time, its like my own little journal. I think you would enjoy it and learn a lot about the computer.I have never thought I could write very well or tell good enough articles so people would pay attention so this whole blogging thing is helping me 🙂 Take care and good luck. xo Melina
