Wednesday, July 21, 2010I consider myself pretty fearless in the kitchen (and in several other rooms of the house, but that's another post for another time), and while I recognize that not everyone even wants to make their own croissants or pizza dough or ice cream, I think a lot of people think cooking is a lot more complicated than it is - maybe they had parents who cooked elaborate French meals, or maybe they had parents who didn't cook at all...
Or maybe they've seen the infomercial for this product -
Apparently, cracking eggs is so difficult and complicated, it requires an apparatus... wait, what?
It's a chicken egg, the shell is not made of titanium.
The phrase "walking on egg shells" means to conduct yourself gingerly in a situation - because eggshells are fragile.
If you really and truly believe that the only way for you to open an eggs is to spend $19.95 (plus shipping and handling) for this contraption, well... maybe you should just stick to the McDonald's dollar menu because... really.
