I probably would have eaten it, with a lot of salt and pepper and bread. As to how it came about, I supposed it was one of those explosions that happen in microwaves sometimes. I can’t figure out the role of the glass, though. Oh wait…the plan was to poach the egg in a glass of water?
No, no poaching. This was just an attempt to “scramble” an egg in a cup, in the microwave. I can’t believe others haven’t tried this. It was left in too long. Maybe there was an air bubble under the egg? I don’t really know.
You mistook that turntable thing in the microwave for a plate and decided to allow the egg to serve itself?
I remember the very DAY that I took you to the Bay and we bought you a very small skillet so that you could cook yourself one single egg and have as little pan to wash afterward as possible. I suggest returning to that method.
Ah, Christina, I remember that day as well. It was a good skillet that served me well for several years, but eventually I burned too many things onto it and couldn’t get it clean. Not to worry, though: we just got a nice pair of Calphalon non-stick skillets that are sure to set these affairs right.
