The weirdest thing happened today when I tried to hard boil some eggs.
I usually do the recipe where you bring eggs in cold water with a splash of vinegar (to help make peeling easier) to a boil, then cover it and turn it off and check it in 16 minutes. Today I did that, and set the timer, and forgot it. When I finally remembered, fearing overcooked eggs, I rushed over to the sink and poured the eggs and hot water into a strainer. But instead of overcooked eggs, I had basically just partially cracked several UNcooked eggs.
I have absolutely no way to make sense of this.
The story has a happy ending, at least. I used the partially cooked eggs to make a sort of “scrambled egg soup” by blending it up, throwing in a half gallon of chicken bone broth and a cup of rice.
The kids seem to be enjoying it. But this incident will live on as a household mystery. Unless you have any ideas?
