Yup, it may actually have saved me time.

happily, this venting thread is a special place where i can go without getting yelled at for going off topic, or bothering folks unduly by the sharp turns and tangents of my mind. segueing...the other day, i bought my first ever quail eggs. while i expected them to be small, i had no idea How small...i guess i need to explain here that my groceries are being delivered to my home at this time. when i first unpacked my eggs, i couldn't help bursting into laughter at the sight! there it was, a miniature ten-pack egg carton, with these wee pint-sized speckled, freckled, cute-as-can-be quail eggs, nestled into their tiny egg-compartments.--seriously, these quail eggs are approximately the size of the godiva chocolate truffle morsels sitting nearby in their own gold boxed, partitioned, nest-compartments....
the thought of frying these little guys for my breakfast, in one of my giant jonathan swift, giant- sized frying pans, suddenly struck me as uproariously funny, ludicrous really.:) such cute, speckled little things, they needed a plan 'b'....
fast-forward to today, i have my plan: i will make a sponge cake! well, more likely it will be a sponge cupcake..:) if i can just figure out how to go about cracking their itty-bitty freckled shells, and separate their itty-bitty yolks from their itty-bitty egg whites, each into their own itty-bitty quail-egg bowls...

i'm hoping the egg whites and the egg yolks don't get mixed together, or instead of a sponge cupcake, i will be back to my out-sized frying pan, and an itty-bitty, 10 quail-egg omelet for breakfast...:)

p.s. add eggs to my shopping list. hen's eggs....

I bet when you looked at those little eggs, you couldn't put them "down!"

haha, you're right, chopper--the little guys are still sitting in my fridge, waiting for resolution....i like soft, three-minute eggs when i'm not having fried or scrambled. just trying to calculate the conversion time of a three minute hen's egg to that of my quail eggs.--let's see, should be somewhere around 10 to 15 seconds, hmmm....

When you begin a sentence with, "No offence meant, but..." you fully intend to offend.

Blowing off a little steam right now. I can't go into details, and it doesn't matter anyway. Just a know-it-all person I know who should think a little before opening his mouth.

I read one time that when someone says something rude to you, you should act like you didn't hear them and ask them to repeat it. Maybe they will realize how mean they sound.
