You know how I love gadgets!?
Well MIL came to visit today and gave me an electric egg poacher/boiler that she had bought recently and couldn't be bothered using. It boils four eggs or poaches three and when it is cooked it chirps!. I haven't had a plain boiled egg for years. DH usually has fried and I poach mine in the pan after cooking his. Anyway I just boiled an egg in my new little friend and it was delicious!
It reminded me of my Dear Mum boiling eggs for me years ago and making me little soldiers of toast to eat with it. Of course the eggs in those days were collected by my Dear Dad from his "girls" who had been fed well and produced yummy, almost orange yolked eggs.
Senility setting in? Or do I just need to get out more????
