Question of the day.

How do you like your eggs? πŸ™‚

My answer:

I like them both soft-boiled and hard-boiled. They’re not my favourite thing in the world but I do like them and have them for breakfast sometimes. I really dislike fried eggs though, and scrambled as well, plus scrambled eggs are on my emetophobic no-no food list so even if I theoretically liked them, I wouldn’t eat them anyway. I used to eat scrambled eggs years ago before they made it on to my no-no list even though I didn’t really like them, because it’s a deeply ingrained habit of my Dad’s to eat scrambled eggs every Sunday and we all used to do that, also I had them sometimes at nursery. But then I got sick from them once at nursery and since then I don’t even pretend I like them and I don’t know what you’d have to do to make me eat scrambled eggs. πŸ˜€ For some time, as a teenager, when my emetophobia was at its worst, I had a huge problem with eggs and almost anything containing eggs because of salmonella and the like, and it was one of the products with which it really took me quite some time to get back to eating them normally, and I still feel wary in places like restaurants, but what helps is that my grandparents sell eggs – they used to have hens of their own for years but now they get their eggs from somewhere – and we also buy from them, they get them from one source and neither I nor anyone else in my family ever got sick from them. Then again, I’ve never had salmonellosis or a similar thing at all, except from that one short episode with scrambled eggs which I don’t think was due to any bacteria, but that might be just because I’m emetophobic so I’m always cautious. πŸ˜€

How about you? πŸ™‚

  1. Hard-boiled usually. I do like the occasional fried egg or scrambled egg too, although I don’t care for extras like herbs, veggies or cheese in/on my fried or scrambled eggs.

  2. Scrambled and fried over easy. Not a fan of boiled eggs.

    I was having a bowl of Frosted Flakes at 7 p.m. last night,inspired by your cereal question post😜

  3. I like to take four eggs and scramble them until they’re burnt (for lack of a better word), and then I put a packet (5 grams) of sugar on them! Super-yum! I’m sorry scrambled eggs aggravate your emetophobia. On my end, my scrambled eggs have never upset my tummy, but part of it might be that I only like them burnt. Honestly, the thought of them cooked for a normal length of time turns my stomach a bit, too. I’m not sure how I discovered them burnt, but I love them that way! And with the sugar!!

      1. That’s interesting, indeed! I discovered it one night while I was doped up on Ambien, back before I quit taking it. I was in that sleep-eating phase of the drug, and I thought, what the heck, sugar? And … HA HA HA! It was instalove for the sugared eggs.

  4. It changes based upon my mood of the day and the tasks that I have lined up for that day. I went 5 years without it but I’ve reintroduced it to my diet to help gain strength.
