I now wake up early three times a week to go to work, and although im a self confessed morning person, i would rather spend the early part of my day lounging around our room catching up on current events or leisurely eating breakfast. But getting up early has never been as exciting until i found this place

Favorite Meal of the Day

i just love breakfast!

it must be because our mom never let us out of the house when we were small unless we ate our breakfast. now, hubby’s home is not fond of morning meals as everyone just seem to rush out in the morning. so when we got married, it was a tug of war whether to eat before leaving or not. but because hubby is mr grumpy early on in the day, weekdays are packed breakfast but weekends are according to my preference.

early morning meals are never complete without eggs

sausages and hash browns are great with my favorite condiments of ketchup and mustard

and of course my favorite cup of coffee or hot chocolate

Morning Experiments with Microwaved Eggs

there was a sale at S&R last April 1-5 and since hubby’s office is a stone throw away from one of their branches, he surprised me with a purchase.

it was a contraption that allows you to cook eggs in the microwave!

we have found a way to cook very crispy bacon in the microwave with all its grease absorbed by paper towels but i didnt know you could cook eggs in the microwave either!

hehehe!  silly me initially thought it was an april fools day prank, but i happily found out it could really be done!

the content of the box looked like a mini juicer

and inside it were aluminum lining with holes

instructions say that water was to be placed on the bottom part of the plastic encasement.

we then placed the raw egg tip down and set the microwave for 3 minutes.  i was so excited to open the microwave cooked egg when the 3 minutes were up and so hubby cracked it open hurried by my enthusiasm, burning his fingers in the process!

we found the first product too cooked and thought that we could alter the directions on the box and cook it at 2 min 30 seconds and then drop it in an ice bath, less we want to thoroughly burn all of hubby’s fingertips!

the 2nd product turned out quite well

the white was cooked and the center was soft, but i like my egg yolk a little soupy and tried to cooked the 3rd egg at 2minutes and 20 seconds.  this produced an almost raw egg which spilled and escaped my lens.

the next morning we repeated the microwaved egg experiment, this time with a different batch of eggs and went with 2 minutes 30 seconds without the ice bath and produced my soupy eggs. *big smile*

best paired with crunchy bacon and my favorite orange juice -sour and pulpy!

what a great way to start our morning!
