I make crêpes, but mine are buckwheat crêpes and involve no sugar whatsoever - they are just a local flatbread, like tortillas, though they are richer because they involve eggs and usually milk or some subsitute. I hate Western ketchup, though evidently the name derives from some Southeast Asian sauces, some of which I like very much (others are indeed too sweet).
Thinking back at the chicken skin incident, I realized that I served grilled duck breasts on one of the days, with the thick skin and the luscious layer of fat under it, and he ate every morsel with gusto. So I'm wondering what is the difference, other than the fact that you can't pull off the duck skin no matter how hard you try -- but you can cut it off it you have to.
Yes,the dipping into the egg yolk thing is very common. I'm a bit surprised somehow hw that you deemed this odd. Even though I don't eat eggs this way very often myself. How else once the yolk starts running all over the plate is one to mop it up?
Yeah, the yolk is the entire point of the egg as far as I'm concerned. The white is useful for scrambled eggs or omelets, but simply something to be gotten out of the way in boiled or fried eggs in order to get to the gold. Why, why, why would anyone ever eat an egg white omelet?
Thinking about sticking an entire egg yolk in my mouth at one time sets off the gag reflex. That is ickier than dipping, any day. HW, you are odd! ( )
As I child, I couldn't stand certain runny items touching other things on the plate, but I seem to be over that, except when I have a food abomination Denny's breakfast and the maple syrup gets on the bacon or the sausages.
K2, you are just wierd. ;-)
In the US, they market breakfast sausages that are maple flavored. This is a combination that works really well.
I'd dip my link sausages in the syrup if I ever had that kind of breakfast.
Hmmm. Maybe Kimby has a point. We probably all have little traits that others don't recognize as compulsive because they fall within the boundaries of normal. Only when the traits become repetitive and unusual, such as DonC's friend with the crumbs, do they get noticed.
Yes....I have. Only yesterday my friend's partner was handed a large slice of walnut cake (with cream cheese icing) and he cut it up with a knife and fork into small pieces before he ate it. She told him 'That's not a steak you're eating'.....
As I was lifting the over easy eggs out of the pan this morning, I was just about to put my egg on the toast (toast = Mrs I's job) when I realized the toast was, get this, RAISIN toast! What WAS she thinking?
(btw, was very gratified that none of my guests yesterday put ketchup on their eggs, home fries or meat.)
