Unless you work in a restaurant kitchen, you don’t usually have to wear any special clothing when doing a spot of cooking. Maybe an apron, or perhaps (if you’re round at my sister-in-law’s place) something fireproof 🙂 But as a rule, your general everyday clobber is normally fine.
This lunchtime though, was an exception.
(Lab coats at the ready…)
Shana had decided to do an experiment!
And it involved eggs. So forget the lab coats, and substitute flak jackets and tin helmets. Because we (well, I) were expecting a weapon that even the good old USSR never had back in the Cold War era:
Yes, Shana had been scouring the Web and had found a way to do hard-boiled eggs without using any water.
Luckily, she was not using the microwave. No, Shana cooked one single solitary experimental egg on a wire rack in our Tower halogen oven (aka an Air Fryer). Ten minutes later and we were tucking into one of the best hard-boiled eggs either of us had probably ever had. Beautiful golden yolk. Wonderful rich taste.
From now on there’ll be no messing about with getting a pan of water to a rolling boil and trying to avoid splashes, From now on, our hardboiled eggs will all be done in the halogen oven. Shana’s experiment had been a total success.
I’m keeping the flak jacket and tin helment though. Might even construct a nucular bunker at Waffle Towers, just in case the Russkies suddenly decide to bombard us with twenty thousand free range ones 🙂
