So it's pretty much a mystery why I don't go around clucking and bobbing my head. The amount of eggs I consume in a week's time is obscene. Actually, my whole family should be clucking. We all love eggs. In the course of a week's time, I will hard boil anywhere from 3-6 dozen eggs! In addition to all of the hard boiled eggs we go through, we also enjoy omelets, scrambled eggs, egg salad, and dippy eggs all through the week. So ya, we should be clucking... like obnoxiously loud.
Now I have to admit, I wouldn't eat as much eggs as I do if my diet and nutrition wasn't so front-loaded with protein but I honestly do love eggs. I ate a ton of eggs even before I lost all of my weight. I don't eat many yolks though. Not for any other reason than I just don't like yolks that much. So I mostly just eat the whites and when I make egg salad, omelets, or scrambled eggs (which we all LOVE), I only use one yolk to every three whites. They don't even notice it. In fact, I don't think Jay and the kids even know I do that, lol.
My husband loves eggs just as much as I do, especially hard boiled eggs. He takes 4-5 hard-boiled eggs in his lunch everyday. My kids love hard boiled eggs as well. They are constantly plucking them out of the gallon sized Ziploc bags that I have stored in the fridge.
Here's the deal with hard boiling eggs the old fashion way... you never know if you're going to get a good batch and you never know if the peels are going to come off easily... and you never know if you're going to turn into a lunatic, start spewing expletives, and start whipping the eggs in the trash because the damn peels will not come off.
The whole waiting around thing and timing how long they boil, how long to set them aside, and how long they sit in cool water is just awful and so time consuming. And then for them to sometimes come out horrible, omg you just want to scream. Even if you do the same exact thing every time, you never get the same results. OMG, it is enough to drive you mad.
Can you sense my disdain for uncooperative eggs? Honestly I think it bothers me more than the average person just because I boil eggs so often. It's a weekly ritual. We go through so much. We need to start our own chicken farm. OMG no, maybe that isn't a good idea because whenever I'd get a stubborn batch of eggs that refused to peel, I may just go outside and start bitchslapping the chickens. Okay totally kidding (no, seriously, I really am just kidding). I'm not saying a tiny part of me wouldn't think of it, but I would NEVER hurt an animal... Except spiders and ants. But I don't consider them animals, they are icky bugs and if they come into my house, they will be squashed and smushed and thrown away... along with the gnarled up hard boiled eggs that refused to let me peel them.
