At Least the Eggs Did Not Explode in Microwave

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Gold DRE #00697006

In case you're wondering, I am still camping out at our house in Hawaii in the midst of remodeling hell. We got bogged down because the countertop guys could not get over here in a timely manner. It's also taken them two days to cut and install 3 pieces of plywood.

That surface did give me a good place to test whether my hard-boiled eggs were cooked all the way through. They say if the egg easily spins on a flat surface, it is cooked. Because it's not like I have a stove installed yet. My new microwave is the only working appliance apart from my Keurig.

Although, it did occur to me that I probably should not be rolling cooked eggs around on treated plywood. If the egg shells touched the water I rinsed the eggs in, I could probably die if not become very ill. Such joy. You can read more in my personal blog at this link: Should You Make a Hard Boiled Egg in the Microwave?

Wishing you a bit more speed with your renovations. I remember the experience a few years ago when I did a complete remodel. My microwave was in my bedroom for awhile. BTW...did you know you could purchase eggs aready boiled?

Remodeling projects can definitely test our patience. Sometimes it’s hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

You are a brave woman Elizabeth! I can't imagine trying to do or live through a kitchen renovation during the holidays. 

By the way, I have resorted to using the side burner on the BBQ as well. In my case it was when we lost power for a few hours while I was trying to cook dinner.

I feel your pain.  Contractors just seem to work at a different speed than we would like!  Good luck with your microwave and Keurig cooking concoctions!

Elizabeth, it does sound like you are in remodeling hell, and hope you didn't get sick from the eggs.  Not sure if I have ever cooked hard boiled eggs in the microwave.

Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland Actually, no, I did not realize you could buy eggs already hard boiled. I asked a couple of friends, and they said I could probably get it in the deli section at Safeway, but I'm not sure.

Libby Cousins Wouldn't call it bravery. Christmas is a good time to do this because fewer distractions with Sacramento real estate, and nobody else is here to get underfoot. :)

Endre Barath, Jr. You almost have to wonder what the homeowners did to cause the contractors to walk off the job? Sometimes hard to tell which party is at fault. Making your average homeowner happy -- some schmuck who doesn't know diddlysquat about construction -- is probably as much of a challenge as we face in our profession, if you want to know the truth!

Joan Cox What made me nauseous was trying to find Holualoa and speeding because I was late, zipping around those winding roads in an SUV. Would not have been an issue in my Porsche but the SUV is more side-to-side action, LOL. After being given screwy instructions as I drove, I finally said forget it and went to Safeway. I got out of my car and WOW, my mouth started water.

I spied the trashcan on the curb and thought that would be a good place to head. Could pretend I was looking for something in the trash.

Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland Ha! Thanks! We do get Egglands eggs in Hawaii, I believe, these are the eggs with the red printing on top? Where would you find this package? I don't think it's with the eggs. And it's probably not frozen.

Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Real Estate Agent, Top 1% of Lyon Agents I just googled hard boiled eggs. My local GIANT carries them but I noticed that Wegmans, Target, and WalMart all have this package.

I do love google!

Elizabeth- have never tried to boil an egg in the microwave! I've heard about people doing it but if I have to, I'll heat up our grill.

I have never tried microwaving a hard boiled egg.  But, you made it sound so simple, I'm going to try it first thing in the morning.

You remind me of why we have procrastinated getting our kitchen remodeled...we need to replace cabinetry too, it's going to be a lesson in patience...

I like the idea of using the side burner on your grill - we are thinking about replacing our Traeger with a propane grill - I'll make sure we get a side burner model.
