Beautiful December

Now, when the garden awaits the return of spring
Now, when the silence is deep and blue
Now, when the winter has cast her spell again
Beautiful December, Beautiful December

Here, where the snow is as soft as a woolly lamb
Here, where the nightfall is deep and blue,
Here, where the stars are so bright, you reach for them
Beautiful December, Beautiful December

Child, may you sleep in gentle peace tonight
Dream of songs that rise on silken wings!
When you wake, enchanted by the snowspun light
Sing the songs that came to you in dreams,
Your beautiful December dreams

How to boil an egg

Hopefully this is something everyone can do! (Hands up those who don't know how to do this?!)

But this is how to boil the perfect egg (at least in the author's definition of perfect). I must say, for me, the photo did make my mouth water though.

How do you like your eggs best?

My favourite way of eating eggs, is fried, 'sunny side.' This American expression describe an egg fried one side only, though till I started travelling and egging breakfast out of my home, I'd never heard of eggs being fried BOTH sides!

    I wouldn't like an egg like in that article's picture. I don't like runny yolks, but I don't like them completely cooked either.
    I read you should turn the heat off after some minutes so that the yolk doesn't become grey. It seems to help.
    As for fried eggs, I cover them with a lid so that the yolk cooks up as well.
    Scrambled eggs are nice as well but they require more work and time.

    I don't like hard boiled eggs much @SLB. I have the nasty habit of forgetting them and cooking them for too long too.
