details


i have been teaching paige some easy, tried and true fam recipes...white gravy, deviled eggs, fried potatoes, etc.  deviled eggs is one of her favs and she really does a fab job making them...
when the eggs come out fully cooked.

she boiled 3 eggs and when she cracked the first one, the yolk was still gooey.  i told her it was no problem, just put them in the microwave for a few seconds and the yolk would cook right up.

and when i heard this loud explosion, i knew that i left out a few details
1. crack the other two eggs
2. place a paper towel over the egg bowl
3. think

and...yes, she did clean it all up.  laughing the whole time.

Just popped over from Fordy Days and Nights. I am about to be a mom of four, too, so I needed to see how it is done!

Thanks for the laugh. Great that you are teaching her to cook.I know she will never forget these moments with you. Some of my favorite memories are cooking with my mom. After many years of cooking together, she and I are a well oiled cooking machine together.
