I Am A Kitchen Goddess

Lori very kindly offered me a granola recipe.

Lori does not know exactly who she's dealing with.  For me, an acceptable recipe is "just add water and bake."

In fact, just this morning, I accomplished something in the kitchen I've never done before.  It's pretty incredible.  You might want to sit down for this.

I actually ... (wait for it) ...

... hard-boiled some eggs.

(No way.)  Way.

I boiled water.  With eggs in it.  I reduced to a low simmer.  I set a timer.  I doused in cold water when done.  (I used a recipe.  That's right.  I had to look up how to boil eggs.)

But the nutritionist had recommended some protein for my afternoon snack, and I thought I might get pretty sick of string cheese, so I boiled up some eggs.  And I felt mighty empowered by the experience.  Look at me!  Cooking protein!

Wow!  I had no idea.  No idea whatsoever.
I'm proud of you for boiling eggs, and I now retract the offer of the granola recipe.
