Tip to avoid Stupid Chef Trick!

Here’s the tip in a few words: Don’t leave the Whisk in the Bowl of just beaten Eggs!

Here’s what happened:

Slept late—no early morning run to fetch Charlie needed today.

Spent 1 1/2 hours on finalizing details for large event on Saturday coming!

Looked up to realize it’s 11:15 and I haven’t had breakfast.

Analyzing my choices I decided it would be brunch.

Pantry produced roasted red peppers, scallions, avocado, eggs, rye bread, pepper jelly.

The Plan:  Scramble of peppers, scallions, avocado with rye toast and pepper jelly.

The Prep:  chop small mound of scallions, small mound of peppers, dice avocado, set each on cutting board next to stove; whisk eggs in a bowl with some dried fines herbs place on cutting board next to veggie mounds; place bread in toaster.

The Cook: Preheat saute pan on stove, reach for the jar of Ghee…………..

Now here’s where the tip would have come in handy…..

Catch sleeve of oversized t-shirt on whisk in egg bowl tipping it over spilling eggs over the cutting board, countertop, under the blender around the bottle of olive oil and down the front of dishwasher.


Any questions?

Eat Well….Be Well!

    Me too, Jim!!!! Seriously …just about an hour ago, I came home and was getting ready to grill salmon in the Big Green Egg. I did the EXACT same thing you did with the bowl of beaten eggs but, in my case, it was a bowl of freshly made teriyaki marinade (for the salmon) … sherry, soy sauce, brown sugar, ginger, and sesame oil. SESAME OIL!! I knocked into the whisk in the marinade bowl, the bowl went flying, and as the &*(@#$#@!$#@!!! words flew out of my mouth unabated, scaring the dogs, teriyaki sauce went EVERYWHERE! Nothing in that part of the kitchen was spared: the wall, the cabinets, the dishwasher, the island, the counter, the floor, the baseboards, and the appliances on the counter (including a small convection oven, a Keurig machine, and a NutriBullet blender. Then it was a matter of trying to keep 3 dogs away from the salty sweet oily mess.

    I’m now having a Maker’s Mark on the rocks. I raise my glass to you, my friend. Pour yourself one too!!
