Not to be confused with Kylies Down Under over easy method which might be the same as my Up Over under easy.


Jeff, you have totally confused me...but in a good way

I should hope a 1/2 cup (120ml) portion of ice cream which contains .4 egg yolks, 10 Tsp. heavy cream, 6 Tsp. milk, and 2.5 Tsp sugar would not cause heart problems.

There are certain things I make where hubby knows ahead of time to disable the smoke alarms. He just puts them back up once I'm done cooking.

Spaghetti. I am on a low carb diet so mine was with shoe stringed zuchini that was slightly cooked in salted water.

But the problem would be the "1/2 cup portion". Not known for my restraint.

I know, I know, "all things in moderation". That mantra got me to lose 40 pounds even with a small bit of real ice cream. (Then we moved but the mantra got left back home. ) Not as good as YOURS, mind you, but real.

We can't disable ours! They run both on battery and are hard wired. The only way we could be sure they stay quiet is to take out all the batteries AND kill the power to the house. There just has to be a better way...

You could just turn the circuit off that they are on (along with removing the batteries). I know, I have hard wired smoke detectors I had to disable. Way too sensitive.

Sensitive? I say annoying! They are foolproof so that the fools who wouldn't use them are safe. Unfortunately for those of us with a lick of common sense we have so many hoops to jump through it's barely worth it. I suppose we could close the doors to the basement and each bedroom, but that leaves the upstairs and downstairs hallways exposed. We would have to check each circuit to see which breaker controlled each detector. I think I'll sear the chops on the stovetop and have earplugs at the ready next time!
