No, that is not a euphemism for anything scandalous, get your mind out of the sewer.
On the occasion of my breakfast and my need to add protein to my diet, I offer the following recipe for perfect hard boiled eggs, not over cooked and no icky green/grey tint around the yolk.
- Put your eggs in a saucepan and cover with 2 inches of cold water.
- Bring them to a boil over medium heat.
- When the water begins to boil, remove from heat, cover and let stand 20 minutes.
- Rinse under cold water until cool, then peel.
For tips on peeling, I refer you to Tim Ferriss. The only superhero that I currently know of.
I’d like to tell you that Tim Ferriss and I go way back, but we don’t. In fact, we don’t know each other at all. But he did go to Princeton, and I live near Princeton, and I was the first person I know who bought and read the Four Hour Work Week, and even though I haven’t put any of it into practice I believe it’s brilliant and do-able if you’re, say, not me (read: not befuddled and disorganized and, um, lazy).
And the guy has interesting ideas about egg blowing, don’t you think? Get your mind out of the sewer.
