I Learn to Hard-Boil an Egg
I boiled my first batch of hard-boiled eggs this week. I had read Katharine Trauger’s Blog on this very topic and so “Home’s Cool” reached my home. Cool.
Please see the linked blog above for the instructions. I almost followed them all correctly – although I had to dash out so left them in the boiling water for longer than I was meant to – but when I came back I had a couple for lunch. Very good. And impressively easy to do.
The remaining eggs perhaps had a higher calling:
Not that eggs have got much to do with Easter, though. We were taught, as children, that the eggs were to remind you of the stone in the story:
“…an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it.”
Matthew ch 28 vs 2
The internet is full of other suggestions too, as to why there are eggs involved.
I am sure that making hard-boiled eggs is something I should have learned to do before now – but better late than never. Still struggling with the pancake thing – but no pressure until next Shrove Tuesday!
