Am I the only one who noticed that you missed out some crucial steps?

הצעיר שלמה בן רפאל לבית שריקי ס"ט said...

What the hell are you makin' there man?

Crawling Axe said...

A simple Russian breakfast. Eggs with tomatoes and onions. You can also add leeks. Or sausage.

Altie, this stuff is patented. Can’t just reveal my secrets to anybody.

Altie said...

uhu. but why would you put up pics and number them, but intentionally skip out numbers? just renumber them altogether so we wont know anything is missing.

הצעיר שלמה בן רפאל לבית שריקי ס"ט said...

Yeah, but...aren't you using specifically pickled tomatoes for some reason?

e said...

it does look quite delicious. In Kharkov we never got such eggs.

Crawling Axe said...

No. Pickled tomatoes are eaten separately.

e, which eggs I am using? Even I don’t know (besides that they are of white shell). Or do you mean the creation in general? It can also come in a scrambled fashion.

Altie, it’s to keep you on edge, guessing. Mostly it was done to show that I am skipping steps. Use your imagination for the rest.

Altie said...

do u actually skip steps, or is that just for our benefit?

Crawling Axe said...

e, you were in Khar’kov?

A conversation in a Brooklyn subway:

— Excuse me, vot time iz it?
— Sho?
— Oh, you’re from Ukraine!
— Ha?
— From Khar’kov!
— Lya?
— From Sal’tovka!!!

Crawling Axe said...

Well, yeah, I cut the tomatoes, cut the onions, crack eggs open in a glass, check them, put them in a dish, salt/pepper them; meanwhile, I crush the tomatoes, toss the onions around, pour the eggs on top, make sure the fire is at low, etc., etc.

Gee, I thought my lab students were bad...

:-P

Altie said...

Really? I know how to make eggs. Nice pics, but you overcomplicate things. I'm glad you are not my teacher.

Crawling Axe said...

Most Americans think they know how to make eggs. Or French toast. Little do they know...

This wasn’t a lab manual.

I am glad I am not your teacher too. Or anybody’s teacher. Right now teaching others is the last thing I need.

ChayAiz said...

you dont teach your lab students?

e said...

we had eggs in Ukraine, with white shells, but nobody cooked them like that.

Khar'kov? harumph. Kharkiv.

Crawling Axe said...

I don't have to TA anymore. Or take classes. Just do research. Thank G-d. (Not that I would not enjoy teaching a class, and I actually enjoyed TAing a lecture class, but TAing a lab and grading exams was not pleasant.)

e, what do you expect from yeshiva food? We had two Israeli cooks who didn't know how to properly boil eggs.

Khar'kov is in Eastern Ukraine. If we say "Moscow", we can say "Kharkov".

Crawling Axe said...

"Kharkiv" sounds like somebody clearing his throat.

sarabonne said...

I used to be obsessed with making omelets but now I've become a more sunny-side-up kind of gal.
Anyways this looks delicious.

Crawling Axe said...

I make sunny-side-up eggs too. With onions. Fry a lot of onions, put eggs in a bowl, but don’t stir them. Then pour them out on already fried (but not burnt) onions, put the fire on low, wait until the white is firm, but yolk is still gooey. Eat with bread.

Best with rye bread. Also helps if you can't have wheat. Also helps if this is making you so hungry that you're going to raid the fridge.
