Yeah, that might have saved my egg whites. But, I think it was fated to go wrong. BTW, the sponge cake came out fine with the new batch of eggs and the omelette was a perfect, quick supper while I was busy.

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....
