The Young Persons Survival Guide To Leaving Home
My daughter is in her last few weeks of school and it won’t be long before she will be spreading her young wings and flapping off into the big wide world. She and other young people like her would probably like to imagine themselves as gliding off into the big wide world. Fully able to handle whatever their new, independent life will throw their way, but age and wisdom tell us that is rarely the case.
As I’m typing this I can’t help but chuckle. As exciting as no longer having to answer to parents is, I suspect that there will be many head-scratching moments and maybe even frantic phone calls home for a little advice.
I thought I’d start slowly compiling a set of blog posts that my daughter and other young home-leavers may find useful. Just to save those awkward phone calls home.
How To Cook Runny Eggs And Soldiers
Why start with a ‘recipe’ on how to cook runny eggs and soldiers? Well, apart from being cheap and simple to prepare, making it perfect for any time of the day, it was once my go-to hangover cure, along with a pint of milk.
Now I’m not encouraging overindulging in alcohol, but I’m no fool either. My daughter does enjoy the odd drink, and I’m sure there will come a day when she has one too many and wakes up with a tongue like dried out old chamois and a stomach that feels like a tumble dryer on overdrive.
This ‘recipe’, my dear daughter, will help if you are hungry or hungover…
The ingredients are simple and should be staples in your dwellings.
When the water reaches a rolling boil (pictured) you can carefully add the eggs.
Boil The Eggs.
The contraption that looks a bit like an upturned dual letterbox is probably a toaster. If you don’t have one you can toast bread under the grill, failing that you can just have bread soldiers.
Runny eggs and soldiers are perfect to eat at any time of the day.
If you don’t have egg cups you can always cut a couple of sections out of the egg by the eggs came in.
How do you like your eggs?
