The same little boy who was making a dash to the restrooms also surprised his Dad with a "what is that" this morning.
The cute little kid had "scooped" something up in his hand off the sidewalk around the bathhouse. I figured he had a bug of some kind.
He opened his hand and showed his Dad his treasure and said "what is this?" IT WAS TOAD POOP! HA!!!
You know I have many talents, some of which I have shared with you in a post called "THINGS YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT ME". In case you have forgotten; I can wiggle my little toes without my other toes moving. I am left handed for most things, but I brush my teeth right handed, I bat right handed, play pool left handed...you can see how talented I am. But one of the biggest talents that I have that I am so very proud of...are you ready for this....is being able to pull the Pabst Blue Ribbon label in ONE PIECE off a wet beer bottle. HA! I betcha didn't see that one coming!
Seriously, I have a different talent that is my MAIN, PROUD talent (although the ribbon thing is true)...I CAN PEEL A HARD-BOILED EGG SO THAT IT PEELS IN ONE LONG SHELL! If you ever need me to help with egg salad, I'm there!!
Which is what I made tonight. Our dear neighbor has chickens and so we sometimes get some nice brown eggs from her and her hubby. I decided to make egg salad with these eggs since they had to be used soon.
I had absolutely NO LUCK peeling those eggs at all! I might as well have been trying to nail jell-o to a tree! Out of 11 eggs, I had ONE that I managed to peel in two pieces. The rest were mangled. I don't know what it is about her chicken eggs, but I won't use them for anything but baking or breakfast! I did end up with enough egg whites to put with the yolks (that fell out as I was trying to peel these things) to make a decent egg salad. But I'd say out of 11 eggs, there were probably 4 eggs worth of the white portion that are in the garbage.
I'm beginning to think my kitchen days are numbered!
