my mad cooking skills


my recipe for hard boiled eggs:

1. place eggs in boiling water, neglect to set timer
2. go downstairs and spend an hour and a half ichatting
3. when you hear a series of popping noises and the dogs start barking ferociously in the kitchen, go back upstairs and remove what had once been eggs from heat source


I would like to say that I've never done anything like this before, but alas, this is the third time. I have other skills, I swear.

My wife once ruined a pot by trying to steam pumpkin for a pie. The water boiled out as she chatted on the phone and I began to smell a chemical scent... I would not eat the pie...

My husband asked if I tried eating one of the eggs. Uh...no! Maybe your wife and I should get together and write a cook book.

I no longer buy tea kettles without loud whistles after destroying two in a similar manner.

The worst I have done is overfill a bundt pan. But I'm still young.

Well, as you didn't burn your house down I feel OK saying that I think the eggs are rather beautiful!
