If it wasn't for butter or readily available, super good pastries and baked goods I'd be vegan.
That being said I can't think of a time I cooked mac and cheese until about two weeks ago. I got smart early. around eight, and gave up cheese and that was pre-mac and cheese cooking time.
But I found myself having to make a bowl for Miloh a few weeks back... And I'm not ashamed to say I had no idea what I was doing. I could follow the box directions but I'm all for tasting foods when cooking and there is no way in hell I'm gonna taste cheese voluntarily.
And then there are eggs... Honestly I can't think of a time I've ever eaten an egg (outside of the aforementioned baked good category). But one night a bit ago when I was trying to figure what I'd feed Miloh for breakfast the next morning, since it was my time for MF duty, I decided to make hard boiled eggs.
Luckily we have a little egg thing you throw in the water and it tells you when the eggs are done.
But it came time in the morning to open the egg and, as it was the first hard boiled egg I've ever opened, it was a huge pain in my ass. It took way to long.
So after a few subsequent attempts at trying to open a hard boiled egg in under five minutes I decided I needed a better morning egg strategy for Miloh's breakfast.
Enter the over easy egg.
Not sure why I decided I'd make an over easy, because I had/have no idea what the different varieties of cooked eggs are, but I thought it would be easy since it's half the name.
So using the google I found an Alton Brown recipe for them.
And I cooked it. And it looked right (I think). And Miloh said it was the "Best fucking egg he ever had." Or maybe he said "good" and cranked his head up and sideways as he does when he said it. But what he meant is it was the best fucking egg he's ever had.
If you remember a post from long ago I always thought good dads were known for making good eggs... But since I don't eat them I'd have to switch from eggs to waffles.
Well now I make good eggs and good waffles.
Moral of the story: I rock. And eggs smell so freaking disgusting I can't understand why anyone eats them.
