Quiz About Eggs
On this web page you will be able to enjoy a quiz about eggs, maybe learn a new fact or two
When you read my poem about making soldiers out of strips of bread, and dunking them in runny boiled egg, it might remind you of your childhood..
And then, finally, you can join in the quiz and poll.
Do you like boiled eggs? I do, I love them!
But I remember that when I was young, every now and then we would find a bad egg.
I was taught that you should break eggs into a cup separately when cooking, to avoid the nasty situation of having the good eggs tainted by the final bad egg.
Being by temperament a bit of a risk taker, I discovered by experience that this was wise advice.
Here's an Eggy Poem I Wrote Myself - It's a children's poem really
EGGS AND SOLDIERS
Eggs and Soldiers
Eggs and Soldiers
Munchy-munch they go
To open eggy neatly.
Spread your bread
And sprinkle salt
Then eat your food politely;
Dipped in yellow
Dunky-dunk I go.
Now his head is bitten off
His jacket coated gold
And crystal white his salty legs -
Don't let your egg get cold!

Returning to bad eggs: - The point I want to make is that I haven't seen a bad egg for years, until after I had started writing this webpage, that is
What reminded me about bad eggs was another piece of advice that, if an egg floats when you boil it, this could mean it's bad.
I had a floating egg recently and quarantined it - I still opened it, but kept it away from the toast, sniffing and inspecting it carefully with each tap, then tasting it suspiciously ..........Perfect!
But a few days ago, lo and behold, I cracked my boiled breakfast egg, and took a mouthful without looking. It tasted disgusting but I had swallowed it before realization dawned on me that it must be bad. I inspected it, and sure enough, on the cracked-open "lid" of the egg, there was a greeny blotchy area. I rushed for my camera and in the shot above, you can clearly see it at the bottom of the lid. Knowing that elderly people can get seriously ill, or even die from salmonella in eggs, I was freaking out, and couldn't decide whether to make myself sick. I have a pretty strong constitution, from years of eating slightly out of date food, so I decided against that, but quickly swallowed two little bio drinks, so that at least I would have some good bacteria inside me to fight the baddies. I lived to tell the tale, and didn't have even the slightest illness.
