I just wanted to share a quick layout I did using my March Main Kit. I have talked before about my love of Egg and Soldiers, (an English term for toast cut into strips which you then use to dip into your supposedly runny boiled egg). I say supposedly as nine times out of ten, especially in Colorado with the altitude, the yolk is usually hard.
I know that when I was little I used to get very cross with my Dad when my yolk was hard, luckily the Oompa Loompas have not got to that stage and happily accept the hard yolk.
I took this photo because for once the egg was done to perfection, I had to have photographic evidence.
This is one dish that I feel I need to share with my fellow American Mummys. I know that it is not that well know over here but in England it is a child's staple lunch or supper. Not only healthy but super speedy to cook. Just pop the toast into the toaster and put your egg into a saucepan of boiling water. Three minutes for the perfect egg, (although not in Colorado, three minutes and it still looks like something a muscle man would put into his morning shake!!).
I have been here nearly three years and must admit that I have still not worked out the cooking time for the perfect egg. I kind of cheat, if I need 3 eggs, I cook 5. I then take one out if I think it is ready. If it is perfect, I take the others out and give them to the children. If it is undercooked, I take the shell off, whack it in the microwave for a minute and then give it to the dogs. They are super happy with this arrangement.
I know that I probably need to get out more but being an English girl, I can't tell you how important it is that I am able to cook a soft boiled egg. If you don't believe me, next time you meet an English girl, I urge you to bring up the boiled egg and soldiers discussion!! Anyway, baby OL and I are off to the mall. I love taking her to the pet shop to see all the puppies, something which is not allowed in England, (pet shops are not allowed to have/sell puppies) but then that's another blog post altogether!! Have a wonderful weekend.
