So I started cooking some of the stuff on Friday night because it was so dang hot and I didn’t want to heat up the kitchen. Mark's request for deviled eggs, potato salad, baked beans, barbeque, chocolate cake and strawberry ice cream.
My first issue was the deviled eggs-- Ok I cooked the eggs and waited on them to cool so I could handle them. While I was peeling the eggs I had some random questions pop into my mind--- ya know how sometimes you boil an egg and it just slips out of the shell as soon as you crack it? And sometimes you cant pay the egg to separate from the dang egg shell and membrane. I wonder what causes that?? Out of 12 eggs I had to fight to get 11 of them out of the shell~~ and when they were out they looked as if they had been nibbled on by a rat or something. I haven't had this problem too much in the past. But, in the recent past this seems to happen every time I hard boil an egg. Wonder what I have done differently?
OK then there was the cake. I have always been a good baker and have not had too many disasters when it comes to baking. I have some great recipes from my Betty Crocker cookbook for simple white, yellow and chocolate cakes and have never ever had a problem with them. This cake I made on Saturday was absolutely gross! I have never made a cake that tasted so bad-- no never. It was beautiful to look at--risen to the top of the pans, smelled good and even the batter tasted good
I am having some issues with my eyes that are really kinda worrying me-- they are so sore and painful. And red. I hate having problems. Come to find out Judy, my cousin the OD, had discussed the complexity of my case with my history of infection and dry eye, weird family history etc. with one of her Ophthalmology friends and he said I probably should never have had the LASIK procedure. Course she only found this out after I had my surgery so it is a case of 20/20 hindsight. Anyway she suggested I go to see someone who specializes in corneal problems. I had some corneal scratching and really dry spots. I asked her what the worst case scenario is and she said pain-- probably will not loose my sight unless something unexpected happens. Can we say scared to death here? Oh well if anyone is reading this and feels the urge -- please say a prayer for my eyes
