Mummy laid an egg

Becoming a parent has taught me many things. Some of them are useful transferrable skills like the applied art of bribery. Some of them less so, like how to put a disposable nappy onto a child who is standing up and attempting to walk away.

One of the skills I have learnt is how to make really good scrambled eggs. There are three secrets:
  1. use one 15 ml tablespoon of milk per egg (at least 2 eggs per person)
  2. don't stir too much, and
  3. take the eggs off the heat when they are still a bit runny - glistening is good.

The title of this post is a wonderful, silly book by Babette Cole which we had out from the library. Great early sex education without taking it too seriously.
