I eat a hard boiled egg every morning.
Wow, big news. Thanks for sharing.
Thing is, I never quite cook them right. I never really know how long they should cook, so I probably overcook them. They're sometimes impossible to peel with a weird green lining around the yolk.
Then I found instructions on making the perfect hard (or soft) boiled egg. It seemed strange, but I tried it.
Oh what joy!
A perfectly cooked easy-to-peel egg with a creamy yolk and NO green lining!
Here's what I was instructed to do (for pictures and even a quick video, go to thekitchn.com:
Place eggs in pot of cold water.
Bring to a vigorous boil.
Remove from heat, cover, and let stand for eight minutes (4 if you want a little runny and soft, 6 if you want less hard, 10 if you want super well-done).
Dump hot water and replace with ice water (prevents eggs from further cooking).
Roll eggs or tap with a spoon to make a small crack.
Peel and eat, or refrigerate and save for later.
I just don't know if I can contain my joy.
Blessings Along the Path,

Simple Joys: A Perfect Egg
I'm a person of creativity. I've always loved to entertain people, and especially, to make them laugh. I don't mind being the guinea pig, the one who is singled out to break the ice. I write what you think but don't want to admit. I'm a word nerd and a grammar geek. I love musical theatre, hiking, and worshipping my Lord, my King-the King of Glory. It's my desire to bring hope and healing to hurting individuals-or perhaps just to provoke thought, to give an encouraging word to get you through the day-through everyday situations and insights into God's Word.
