My wife has requested an egg free evening so no entry tonight.
When I was fresh out of small town Texas fine dining was not in my vocabulary.
My mentor must have noticed this right off the bat because he made me put on a "real" dress and updo my hair for a simple meal prepared by his wife.
Imma thankin' to myself what's so special about eggs cooked inna bowl?
Ate every morsel....
Second lesson of the evening was how to clean the plate without seeming to be a starving street kid lol.
Everything looks so good.
TF will have a tough time with this challenge.
It's not the first time you post a dish with french fries and an egg. The combination stroke me as unusual as well the first time you posted such a dish. And now I'm left wondering what I found so unusual about it... after all, I constantly make home fried potatoes and ham omelettes here. So the only difference is ... the shape of the potato? Weird how our brains work sometimes.
Speaking of offending sensibilities, this is another one for phatch, found it while looking for utube footage of the cult foodie classic, Tampopo. Enjoy phatch:
For myself, not sure I understand all the hot goopy sauce at the end. I enjoyed the visuals all right, but like a sacrilegious joke.
I decided to use my wok for this made up dish:
The pic of the ingredients was not really sharp, but you can see most here (garlic, red onion, little bit of ham, mushrooms, spinach, tomato, fish & soy sauce and obviously eggs!
All fried up and at the last minute I threw in the egg and let it set.
The I decided that I better use my left over cooked noodles, so scrambled it all around and used another egg, which I only broke once the food was plated
Not the best pictures, but it tasted good (and my wok still works great)
Mini pavlovas with caramelised figs
I always have leftover egg whites lying around so I threw them into making meringues and for the first time it worked! The flavours are figs cooked in butter and sugar (I used dried figs as fresh were very expensive), whipped cream (which is melting because of the hot cooked figs), and toasted almond flakes. The recipe was taken from Mastering the Art of Baking by Anneka Manning.
One more eggy-noodle dish:
onions, garlic, home cured chinese belly pork, noodles
red pepper, chili, tomato, mint, basil and lemon basil
Fish sauce and eggs
All fried up
Served with pickled onion, cucumber and garlic
My attempt at marbled eggs will be posted tomorrow. They are cooling down in the liquid as we speak.

This reminded me-a number of years ago my Dad's side of the family decided to create a family cookbook. While trying to come up with a title one of my Dad's sisters came up with "Egg Noodles and Anglefood Cake." Coming from a Midwest German family my grandmother always had homemade egg noodles on hand. The recipe just used egg yolks so her kids (my Dad and Aunts) were always thrilled when Mom made up a batch because that meant there would be leftover egg whites, and not one to waste anything, she always made Angelfood cake, which was a huge treat for the family.
Do you accept bribes?
Gee, maybe I should "accidently" post my Paypal donation details here. For about a quarter of a century I've been running some automotive related mailing lists and web pages. It is all free, but I do ask for contributions from the subscribers to help cover network and equipment costs. The money coming in doesn't even come close to covering the labor costs, but it helps.
If I did get any bri donations here the funds would go towards getting a commercial grade food processor into the Calvary church's kitchen.
Couple more days, carry on folks, this has been a good one!
Okay, last entry for me:
My attempt at marbled eggs
Reasonable marbling, but not as strong as I hoped. They taste good!
I put some deep fried shallots on them for a bit of a crunch.
The most impressive things are the shells though
My wife just walked into my office, looked at the computer and asked what I was doing. I was scrolling through the collection of pictures from this challenge, working on selecting the next host. I showed her some of the top contenders, some things she might like. And she says "You have to pick one of those as the best? That could be difficult."
Yep, great work so far everybody.
