Contrary to what ‘society’ says about women ‘belonging’ in the kitchen; I cannot cook, fuck you society. But, I hardly think cooking per se, is a skill required in order to boil an egg and successfully shell it thereafter.
December is almost here and to celebrate my favorite holiday of the year, my birthday 🙂 I usually host some event at my home where I invite the people who can tolerate my food and those willing enough to try it, to mingle and have a holly jolly feel good time.
This year, I decided to host something different–Brunch. I’ve never done brunch before and while I had an idea of what brunch was, I still googled to see what a brunch menu looked like. Yay ! Deviled eggs, my favorite, definitely a must do!
This morning however, after boiling and attempting to shell four eggs, I ended up egging the shells instead, anxiety struck when I imagined the cataclysmic disaster I’d have come December when it was time to make those deviled eggs. I absolutely hate shelling eggs. I can never get it right.
So there I was shelling all the white off all four of these eggs, luckily there was like one half decent layer left, enough to still be able to refer to it as an egg –any more and it would just have been boiled yolks for breakfast.
As I peel layer after layer, I’m cussing, cussing the shell, cussing the egg and cussing at my over zealous deviled eggs idea. Imagine the disaster it would be if I boiled perhaps 24 eggs for this Brunch that I am having and couldn’t shell the damn things. Ugh!
This is my first time participating in the Daily Post’s Daily Prompt. It was too uncanny an event this morning, after just having that cuss fess with my eggs for breakfast then logging on to my blog and seeing ‘egg’ as the prompt today for me not to depart from my regularly scheduled posts to regale you with what took place. 🙂
I think I’ve tried it all but just in case I haven’t, how do you shell your eggs or are you as hopeless as I am…? What works for you? Let me know in the comments will ya… Happy Sunday by the way…!
