I often make scrambled eggs for the family in the morning.
They are nothing special; a little salt and pepper and perfectly fried.
When I slide the eggs on to our plates from the pan it is virtually spotless; not even a smudge of egg left in the pan.
Not so the case when my husband makes eggs. Tasty as they may be (very) the pan is a disaster after the fact.
Not one to stick my nose in someone else's egg-making-business I waited until I was asked why my pan ends up spotlessly clean while his ends up a burnt on mess.
"You have to let the pan heat up to a perfect medium!" I blurted out as I finally had the chance to tell him.
"Hmmmm." he replied, seemingly suspicious.
And yet, even with the hot fry pan knowledge I had bestowed upon Kevyn, his scrambled egg fry pan continued to look like it had got in a fight with an angry piece of sponge toffee.
Finally, this past Saturday he asked again, "Why don't your eggs stick?"
S - "Because I heat the frying pan up first!"
K - "I do too!"
S - "Clearly you don't."
K - "Yes I do!"
S - "Don't they don't stick if you heat it up first."
K - "Listen Stacy, do you really think I want to continue scrubbing burnt scrambled eggs off your Green Earth Ceramic Pan with a non-abrasive sponge and natural cleaners!?! My own personal hell!!!"
S - "My bad. I have no idea then."
