Hey What's That Smell?!?

I'll give you a hint... it is not poop... it is worse. Much, much, worse.
In fact it may be the most vile smell ever known.
It is the smell of rotten egg... literally.
Gag. Retch.
It is the kind of nasty nastiness that you can't clear from the air and makes you want to roll around on the ground moaning and crying... and... retching.
My favorite pan...
is now tainted with smelly green partially developed chicken egg disgust!

And although I love this pan (and the fact that it can't slowly poison my family with toxic fumes) you can't clean it with soap! If you've ever wondered why Martha Stewart cracks eggs into a cup before... I don't know... cracking them into a searing hot pan (or banana bread batter.. that happened to me too... but did I learn....NO!) this is why. Because now part of my cast iron pan's "seasoning" is chicken death.... and there is nothing I can do about it!

Eww!
(but very cool! I have the same pan! It's one heavy mother...)

And I have decided you must do a video post in which you sing your Amish jingle. Maybe Kid and Mr. Furious could be your backup singers. LOL!

I don't know is it grosser than 3-day old milk in a sippy cup, discovered behind your kid's dresser? The kid that doesn't pour out, it kind of glops out, all greenish-yellow?

So the egg was rotten when you cracked it? I've always wondered if I should just crack those eggs right into my cake batter. Maurinsky mentioned getting a bloody yolk one time. Maybe I should do as Marhta does...

I sing most of my sentences like my life is a musical... even in public

LOL. I can't wait to hear this...

Ummm... let me explain this..
about a year ago I cracked an egg into my banana bread... it exploded upon cracking and it literally coated every surface in my kitchen with vile green horrendous nastiness. Bleach was needed. I mean I literally had to work very hard not to throw up. Now that was a farm egg so obviously it was left somewhere for too long before they found it.
This time it was a store bought egg and upon cracking it into my pan it seemed a little too runny then I noticed it had a green (and I'll just keep it at that) blob in the middle and it smelled like death. Of course my pan was so hot I couldn't just dump it in the sink.. it actually cooked.
It was yuck times a thousand.

Alright I've got to think of how I could do that... it is best with the imaginings of real Amish people acting out different "Amish life" scenes to the tune of the jingle....this could be very elaborate and VERY funny.

I'll think about posting it for while we are gone on vacation the end of Nov to keep people entertained in my absence!

Loving the new sidebar!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm on a skyscraping caffeine high, can you tell?

Mrs. Furious said...

Hey Heather!

thanks. I keep thinking of funny factoids I can include.. but figure I should space it out.

hmmm you are making me want to go have another cup of coffee.... I think I just might!

and why oh why did I buy Halloween candy 1 week before Halloween? I have almost finished an entire bag of twix!

Heather said...

Hey! Twix are insanely good. Stay far far away from the Trader Joe's dark chocolate covered pretzels. They are my kryptonite.

Mrs. Furious said...

Oh jesus... now I'm gonna have to try then to find out. I do love their dark chocolate covered caramels.. which they list at like 80 calories a piece... which seems wrong because they are HUGE.. but hey who am I to argue?

Mr Furious said...

You need to alert the dishwasher that that kind of nastiness is what I'm cleaning up after. I needed my haz-mat gear...

I've read plenty of cast-iron care things online that allow for soap, I might just need to bust it out here.

I want to cook an egg for breakfast right now, and i think I'll be using the other pan.
