Eggs are fantastic, why have I not been eating more eggs. Today I thought that the English term "sunny side up" is really strange, and then I realized that the German term literally means "mirror egg."

I already started this day with a sleep deficit, only managed to do maybe a quarter of the things I wanted, and tomorrow is really annoying schedule-wise and it'll be a late night, but I'm still awake at 4:30 because I started a long fic at the wrong time. Stupid. (But I also feel a little bit nostalgic because I haven't done this in a while. Not that that'll help me tomorrow. And I didn't even finish the fic so I'll be distracted too.)

Being totally culinarily incompetent, one of the few things I can make that taste good is an oven-baked omelet, which Sis insisted I learn when she hurt her wrist....

Eggs are indeed one of the central foods of my existence.

Here you are - click to enlarge, it's from her scribbled notebook and she says its very forgiving, you can reduce it easily, add other stuff, just like a normal omelette but you get to throw it in the oven and leave it.

All I know is it's easy and yummy.

Damn, and I used the DW scrapbook to try and make sure it did... I can see it, and merked it access list (which you so are)

could you pm me your email? I'll just email it to you.

In my language they're called "seated eggs"

Ah isn't language awesome? LOL. Now I wanna go and look up where both terms come from.

Fic writing can be SO bad for your sleep schedule, don't I know it. XD

We'll call that... inspiration and research? XD

And that kinda actually makes sense. In a way. I suppose. LOL

That's an interesting 'translation'! I wonder how it came about.

I love eggs. One thing I really could not survive without is eggs. So versatile! So useful! So tasty!

I love eggs! The French would translate as "egg in the plate", although "mirror egg" is also exists.

Oh, I didn't know that! "Sunny side up" at least makes sense to me (the yolk looks like a sun), but "over easy"? Uuuh. Why??

In Swedish they're vändstekta - flip-fried. Because you fry one side, then flip it over and fry the other! So that makes sense. (We also call yolk "egg yellow" to go with "egg white". Again: makes sense!)

Eggs over easy are really nice if you want eggs on a sandwich or something - or if you're just not fond of runny yolk. You fry it on both sides - make sure the yolk pops when you turn it - and it's all solid.

Over because you flip them over, easy because the yolk is still soft. If you cooked them a little longer they'd be over hard.

Now, poached is what I don't get. Did you steal it?

Lost eggs is great! How about "dippy eggs"? We use that word here for soft-boiled eggs, and also fried eggs with very runny yolks.
