It was Saturday morning. All I wanted was to do was scramble an egg and eat it all by myself, along with a biscuit and some fresh cantaloupe.
Here's what happened instead.
First, get your no-stick frying pan ready.
Crack the eggs into a bowl. Don't let any shell get in there.
OK, if some gets in, get it out.
Use a fork to stir the eggs.
Don't spill any.
OK, if you spill it, clean it up.
Cleaning up is the downside of cooking, son. Oh, you're going to let your sister finish? OK. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Put the frying pan over a low flame and spray on some cooking spray. Don't spray too much.
That's too much. Carefully pour the eggs into the pan. If you are 5 years old and this is your first time making eggs, but you have made pancakes before, you might pour them so they look like pancakes.
Stir gently so as not to overcook and make them hard. Good scrambled eggs are soft and squishy.
Well done. Now, I'll hold the hot pan while you slide the eggs onto a plate.
Have a taste and say, "Mommy, these eggs are slammin'!"
Sit down and enjoy your scrambled eggs, biscuit and cantaloupe.
I'll eat dry toast. I love you.
