perfect eggs

I had a photo but flickr seems not to have embedding code anymore.
They have a lovely new page. They host millions of photos. We can't embed them today.
I'm sure this problem will be corrected soon.

The Scene: bb is ironing. Do you hear me, Alice? IRONING.
Middle arrives with a plate.

Middle: I do believe I have created the perfect omelet.

bb: Oh, really? How many eggs?

Middle: Three. I know - a little excessive, but perfect nonetheless.

bb: Have you seen the Jacques Pepin...

Middle: About ten minutes ago.

bb: And did you flip it or just roll it out of the pan?

Middle: I flipped it with a spatula and then slid it out of the pan.

bb: Because that non-stick pan is amazing, isn't it? I mean the technology...

Middle: It's a wonderful time to be alive.

and did he keep the pan moving the whole time, like Julia Child taught us to? It really does make them more fluffy!
(Omelets have become a big part of no-meat Thursdays!)

Scott-

I didn't make it NEARLY as fast as Julia Child. I mostly followed Adam Savage/Traci Des Jardins' technique.

Still fluffy!

Lucky girl, whomever will be fortunate enough to fall in Middle graces.

Or your other sons, for that matter.

Good grief - did you say you were ironing?? Is the world going mad?

Sometimes one egg isn't an oeuf.

(I crack myself up.)

Middle should also watch this. It really does create the most perfect scrambled eggs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0fgusblae2c

An excellent omelet can be achieved by using two eggs plus one egg white. No milk or water or whatever else necessary. Very fluffy.
