Heads Up #296


you decide to do the "Mom, you are great thing." and provide a cheap healthy snack that can be put in the fridge and the kids can just grab and go


you boil six eggs in the morning, cause two out of four kiddos like boiled eggs, and you peel them and put them in a bowl in the fridge

Please, please, be sure to cover them with something.

Cause if you don't, when you open that fridge the smell of concentrated boiled eggs will about knock you over. And when the kids come in they will yell one by one, "What is that terrible smell?" and you will have to again explain what has happened. And the smell will not go away and will permeate the whole living area.

And you decide not to do that particular snack again.

I am not saying that this has happened to me, but I wouldn't want it to happen to you.


  1. Overboiling!! I discovered this recently. If you don't overboil them, they don't stink. It's great.

  2. I like it better when the centers of the eggs aren't fully cooked

    I'm just sayin.

  3. Ew. Stinky eggs are the worst - that's a hard smell to get out of one's nose.

  4. If I peel them, I always put them in a baggie. But if I do not peel them, I just stick the pot in the fridge. I don't know about overcooking....I boil mine 10 min.
    Just boiled a dozen while ago, for snacks, and to chop up on salads=)
    Vinegar will absorb your bad odor.
