The Egg A Day Experiment, Part 53

Welcome back, appetite. I've missed you.

I have been sick with the crud for two weeks. Nothing tasted good. I've been battling this bug by slurping pho, Cream of Wheat and eating crackers. I was not hungry. I did not think about food every waking moment. This was some seriously abnormal behavior.

Who doesn't hate being sick? I think it's even worse when it's beautiful outside. But I could not buck up and get my sad sick self out of bed, let alone out the door. I am a complete wimp when it comes to being sick. I do not remember ever being this sick before, but I say this every time I get sick.

I know I must be feeling better because I'm hungry again. I'm craving protein. I want eggs again! I fried up a beauty I bought at the Pike Place Market yesterday, from Maltby Produce Market. I sure have missed the runny yolks and this one tasted extra velvety today. Beautiful. I feel ready to go out and kick some tail!

The Egg A Day Experiment, Part 52

Have you seen this issue of Gastronomica? The egg as a cover girl!

I interviewed a cook recently and asked about making the perfect sunnyside up egg. He gave me a demo, showing me how to break up the slimy section of the egg with the tail end of a fork. And then slide it under the broiler for a sec. Done!

Eggs cooked that way are certainly eye candy, yes? Especially on the cover of a fancy food mag!
