I meant to do scrambled eggs, as [personal profile] zarhooie suggested, but then I got a craving and a container of vinegar in my hands, and the next thing I knew, I was making poached eggs and toast.

(I also have orange juice, but I mooched that off someone else's labor. Mmm orange juice).

Verdict: poaching eggs is less scary than frying them*. Less hot stuff flying around. It turned out surprisingly well, too. But then I did have someone guiding me through the process. It was perhaps a bit too soft, so I shall have to leave it on longer next time (but I was impatient! And hungry! Also see: ravenous)

So today, I:

  • turned on the stove (it made a whoosh sound, and then flames. I did not realize the stove makes a whoosh sound. Why did I not realize this? And it turns out that at some point since I last looked, we got a new stove, one that no longer needs the clicker to start the flame. That makes me happy because trying to coordinate the turning of the knob with the clicking of the clicker looked complicated. And this now just looks simple. Like, the difference between manual and automatic transmission. HUGE.)

  • boiled water (...I'll leave it at that. Hush, don't laugh :-))

  • cracked an egg over heat (I have cracked eggs before, but always over a bowl, and always to hand over to somebody else. This is different! )

  • cracked an egg over something and managed not to get eggshells in it (I have maybe done this once before. or twice. Usually I have to get out the fork and dig.

    PS. I'm still not sure how to crack eggs properly. Hit it with a spoon, tried to break it apart. Got eggy stuff on my hands D: Tomorrow I'm trying scrambled eggs though. More eggs, more practice. Hopefully eggshell free as well?)

  • oh, and popped a piece of toast into the toaster oven. It involves time, and ingredients, and heat. It totally counts.

* Note that I have never actually tried to fry an egg
