    I name my favorite hens after friends of mine. Commonly, the hens seem to take on traits that remind me of the ladies they're named after, and I like to tease my friends. One hides her eggs, one "talks" a lot, etc. etc.

    Well, one of my most-favored hens recently began consistently laying double-yolked eggs. At about the same time, the friend who she's named after got a long-sought book deal!

    I'm thinking of naming one after myself next time. [​IMG]

    Quote:My 6yo daughter demands the double-yolkers as soon as she sees them--I literally have to cook them on the spot! [​IMG] I usually just scramble them in a cup in the microwave, though, because Belinda = LAZY. [​IMG]

    Oooh! I've never tried scrambling eggs in the microwave before, though come to think of it that's how they do it at a lot of bagel places (to make those perfect bagel-sized egg patties). How long do you cook them? Gonna have to try that... a lot less mess than firing up the frying pan....

    That's exactly what I was thinking Nemo! [​IMG] Been there, done that, had to clean it up. [​IMG]

    Congrats to your friend, Ninja!

    Never thought of that! I only use 30-second bursts in the microwave, stirring each time. They're usually done in 90 seconds or so.

    1 minute per egg...that's good and solid. I have one bowl in particular that I like to use cause when the egg comes out it is the perfect size to fit on a slice of toast!
