Just In Time for Easter… So many ways to hard boil an egg!

As Easter is just a few days away, I thought I would do a special Friday reposting of my blog about the many, many ways to hard-boil an egg—
in case you were having any last-minute doubts!


As an admitted control freak, I learned early on to express gratitude for the chores my spouse did around the house, even if he didn’t execute them exactly the way I would. For example, I am surprised in more ways than one when he puts away the clean dishes from the dishwasher (i.e. I am surprised where I find them—or rather, where I don’t find them.)

The point is, you learn that your way is not the only way (unless you’re a dictator). So the other day I was sitting with my friends at my favorite coffee shop and for some reason we began discussing hard-boiled eggs. Imagine my surprise when we ended up in a heated discussion on how to hard-boil an egg! I honestly thought, much like boiling water, that there was only one way. And yet, between the five of us, there were at least four different methods. Methods we all swore were foolproof! Maybe I’m just naïve. (Maybe I am a dictator?) But according to the following link there are at least seven different ways to hard-boil an egg: http://senselist.com/2006/08/29/seven-ways-to-hard-boil-eggs/

Take your pick!

Did I foolishly say there was only one way to boil water? Guess again! I just googled How many ways are there to boil water and came up with 411,000 results. Which doesn’t mean, of course, that there are 411,000 different ways to boil water, just that many links that actually talk about it. Even that blows me away!

411,000 links!

Does anyone REALLY need to google how to boil water? One link claims to teach you seven different ways. Really? REALLY! Do we need seven different ways to boil water?!

(Taking a deep breath–and another one!)

Anyway…ponder that for a while.

    haha – i’m a visual reader…what i read translates in to almost theatrical imagery (i just made up this term but it describes what’s going on in my head *hahah*) – so i got a kick out of your egg convo and imagining the expression on your face when you performed your google searches. happy easter!
