Welcome to the place where your two bloggers ask each other one question each week. We hope you enjoy them as your learn a bit more about us – sometimes we even learn more about each other!
Ray’s question to Karen:
Q: What is your favorite way to eat eggs?
A: You do like to ask the difficult questions, don’t you? I like most egg preparations. I love a good omelet, and when I used to go out for breakfast or brunch before pandemic house arrest, I was more likely to choose an omelet than any other breakfast item. Poached eggs are wonderful, but get this, I’m probably the least crazy about a fried egg with a runny center. I don’t know what makes those two items so different on my palate, but there is a distinct difference for me.
Karen’s Question to Ray:
Q: Once when Ryan was younger I chaperoned on a field trip to Yorktown. During one presentation, food preservation was the topic. The living history instructor was speaking about pickling and held up a pickled egg. None of the children were able or at least willing to identify the pickled object as an egg. One of the teachers, clearly irritated, said “These are straight A students, and they can’t identify an egg?” Since then, it has dawned on me that this is a food I remember as common when I was a child, but never see in this era. The poor kids probably had no idea an egg could be pickled. Can you remember a food that was common in your childhood, but just never come across now?
A: MY question was the difficult one?!? Karen and I set up several weeks of these questions in advance so we have time to think about them, answer them and schedule them. Some are more difficult than others. I have to be honest here and say that I have kept this question on the back burner for more than a month trying to think of something and truly, nothing has come to mind!
I guess for now my answer simply has to be no. If I ever think of an example, I’ll come back with an update!
