This will be my last post for a few days. I am taking a little R&R time. Everyone take care and stay healthy till I return on April 20th.

Since it is near Easter, thought you might enjoy these facts.

It is easier to separate the yolk from the white if the egg is cold.

Cook all egg dishes at low or moderate heat, otherwise they will toughen.

If eggs are a room temperature before you fry or boil them, the whites will be
less likely to be tough.

Salt toughens eggs. Add it to egg dishes only after they are cooked.

When you serve egg dishes, use stainless steel flatware instead of silver.
The sulfur in egg yolks discolors the silver.

Avoid beating eggs directly into any hot mixture -- they will curdle.

If you spill a raw egg whee it is difficult to pick up, cover it with salt and let it set, then pick it up with damp paper towels.

I would like to leave you with he following thoughts:

"Bite your tongue before your tongue bites others."

"A gentle word of compliment falls lightly but it carries great weight."

Have a wonderful break.

I didn't know some of these egg facts. Thanks for sharing them!

Those egg facts are wonderful. The idea of salting the egg that has been on the floor is so very helpful. It seems as if I'm always dropping eggs. They are so slimy when they have to be cleaned. I'm going to try this salt idea if I ever drop another egg. Also, I love the quote about biting your tongue before it bites others.

Hello LV, this post is very good to know about eggs. We are egg eating people. We are lucky enough to have fresh eggs from my sisters hen house.

I love the bluebirds on your pillow cases. I love bluebirds anywhere I see them. Smile. Your photo against the sky framed is terrific. Great blue.

I have missed a few of your posts because I was in Atlanta. I'm back and you are taking a break. Have a great time on your break LV. I enjoy your posts so much.
Hugs, Jeanne

So wise advice you give us. Eggs are also one source of vitamins. All, except vitamin C.
Now it's only a week left before I go to my surprise trip. I have been clues, so I guess we're going to Amsterdam / Holland. And all the tulips!
Looking forward to getting rough on my children and their loved ones for several days.
We barely heard before I go.
Many hugs
