But I digress.
The real reason I'm writing, is to tell you that eggs can be my kitchen nemesis. If I purchase a six-pack of eggs (also known as a half dozen), my husband then decides that he should make a seven layer cake. If I buy a dozen, eight of those eggs go unnoticed and end up in the trash days after expiring. This week's flub was that I had bought a dozen organic, free-range eggs while doing weekly shopping, only to come home the next day to a second dozen of eggs. "Are you planning on an Easter egg hunt, honey?" I asked innocently.
"I didn't know you bought eggs, and I bought some today," my dear husband replied.
I can't win.
So today I decided that eight of those little huevos needed to be boiled. When they were ready, I remembered that I had "saved" a video about how to peel boiled eggs. I watched it. I was in awe. I HAD to try it. And guess what? I made mess. It didn't peel any different than had I not placed water in the glass. Typical me. I can't win in the kitchen.
So I tried again.
This time, I didn't turn the glass sideways, and I added less water. What do you know? Turning it sideways only spun the egg around in a vortex of shell and water. But turning the glass completely over with less water, worked! I highly recommend this method of peeling your hard boiled eggs.
Now if only I could figure out how to correctly determine how many eggs I'll need for the week.
Here's the video I watched:
