I think the foodsaver bags would be a good option for campers.

You could crack a half dozen eggs into a bag, seal them and toss them into a cooler.

If you want them scrambled you can let the kids play catch for a few minutes before you dump them into the frying pan!

Twenty minutes later, I had two perfectly hard boiled eggs. No sulfur ring, no tough white. I just fail to see what eggs give to potato salad. Just color as far as I can see.

The eggs were still in their shell, right Addie?

I personally always use one HB egg per potato in my salad, but then I always use one in my tuna salad also. I could probably get by without meat in my diet, but never without eggs.

I like HB eggs in many things, but Shrek does not...

Sure. But only until I peeled them. If I am going to have hard boiled eggs I either want them for breakfast or in egg salad for a sandwich. Not in potato salad.

Potato salad just isn't potato salad without HB eggs, IMHO.

We had been married less than a year at that point; he expected me to iron his uniforms but I set him straight. He was in the Navy, not me. So it was his responsibility to follow their regulations.
I used to work with someone who had informed her "intended" that it was a condition of her agreeing to marry him that she did not do ironing, never, ever, not even in an emergency. When she had her sons they were taught to iron as soon as they went to school (at 5 years old!). She said that if they were old enough to wear school uniform they were old enough to iron it!

When I was a kid, I loved ironing. My mother did not. I think I loved it even more because she was willing to give me $1 for a load of ironing. This was at a time when I got $0.25/week in allowance. $1 seemed like a small fortune to me.
