We have lot's of eggs. Even in the cold of winter, the hens are a layin'...
The thing about free range chicken eggs is that their shells are really hard and difficult to peel once hard boiled. When you peel 'em, most of the egg white comes off with the shell. Making egg salad or deviled eggs is a bummer when you don't have much egg white.
So momma found this handy dandy 'As Seen on T.V.' gadget called the Eggies. Hmm, sounds promising.
You're supposed to crack open the egg into one of these plastic things. It's kinda messy because the opening to the top of the plastic container is rather small and momma isn't the most... coordinated shall we say.
Then, you put the little cap on the opening and hope that it all seals before you place it in the pot of water.
Unfortunately, no matter how much momma tightened the top and the middle, a couple of them didn't seal very well and leaked egg white stuff into the water. No biggie, but kinda defeats the purpose of preserving the egg whites. So you let the little buggers boil for about 15 minutes. Then let 'em cool before you twist the plastic things open to reveal what's supposed to be the most beautifully hard boiled egg...
We'll let you be the judge, but either momma failed miserably or else this is just another gadget to throw in the junk drawer.
Momma said regardless of how nasty lookin' the eggs turned out, we're not getting 'em in our food. Apparently our farts are more than most humans can stand and adding egg to the equation would be deadly. Whatevers. We'll suffer with our bland, crappy dog food. You can see we're practically wasting away, right?
Also, today momma made a gigantic batch of beef stew. Are you wondering if we got some? Nope, didn't get any of that either...
What's a Smushie gotta do around here to get a hand out?
Ah, perhaps a pee mail to the parents will get through.
