A Night Of Firsts 

The title of this post was suggested by Raizel. This week, we had a night of firsts. Both of the girls are growing up!

Raizel made scrambled eggs all by herself!

As I have shared, I have an airborne egg allergy. I have been waiting for the day that she could make her own eggs.

Raizel even initiated making the eggs on her own. She cracked the eggs into the glass to check them one at a time. Then, she scrambled the eggs up, and placed them on the hot grill.

On the griddle and ready to flip.

The first time that Raizel used a spatula on a hot stove.

The final product.

For those who may not know, eggs are kosher as long as they are from a kosher bird and do not have any blood spots.

When cooking with eggs, each egg is opened into a clear dish or glass and checked for blood spots before it is cook or combined with other food. If a blood spot is found, the whole egg must be discarded, and the cup or dish should be immediately and thoroughly washed with cold water.

When boiling eggs, it is customary to boil at least three eggs at a time. Some people have a separate pot just for boiling eggs.

If a blood spot is found in a boiled egg, the whole egg must be discarded.

Eggs are also pareve, which means they can be eaten with dairy (milk) or meat.

I couldn’t believe that on her own, Raizel knew to check the eggs for blood spots before cooking them!

Raizel was very proud! Even the next morning she was still glowing with pride that she make scrambled eggs all by herself. I am even prouder.

I guess we are all in love with the new grill!

In addition, it cleans up very easily. I just wiped it off with a damp sponge.

Our second moment of firsts was that Yaffa opened up a cheese stick all by herself.

Taking the cheese stick in her hands.

Success! Pulling the plastic down.

Success! Able to eat it all by herself!

It was hard work and she got a little frustrated, but she did it! She even went back to fetch a second one.

It’s amazing was a little motivation can achieve!

Now, she is asking to eat cheese sticks all the time!

I am so proud of both of them!

    What’s a kosher chicken? Is it to do, maybe, with what the chicken eats? If so, what could it possibly eat that would make it non kosher? ps, I still have a hard time opening those darn cheese sticks, maybe Yaffa can give me some lessons. 🙂

    To the proud Mom ,
    thank you for your info on the eggs .
    Won’t you believe it , one of these days my husband had a childish “fit” because I refused to eat one of “his” eggs that had a blood spot in it . We don’t eat kosher and I had no basis for refusing it , I just don’t feel ok about it ! (but he is so enthusiastic about his new hobby a.k.a. his 4 chickens that we have to be careful in “criticizing” his wonder eggs 😉 ) 🙂

      So interesting! I guess it is sort of uncomfortable to feel like you might be eating a fertilized egg. But, does your husband keep a rooster too? I am curious, do the eggs taste better? I used to only get organic eggs because I thought that they were healthier.

        He is still in the phase where he doesn’t know hens from roosters 😉 and yes the eggs are incredibly different from the supermarket ones even from the ones labeled “organic” . They taste , digest , look (the yellow is out of this world) , and cook way better 🙂

        Sounds like a nice hobby! I had a roommate bring home a chick from the lab as a pet. It was not so pleasant living with a chicken. I was very happy when the chicken was donated to a farm! 🐣

        It keeps him outside of the house 🙂 and he does love animals so yes it is good for him , and we girls get to eat these amazing eggs 🙂
        I hear you , chickens are not my preferred companions – they’re dirty and smelly 😉 Ours are at the end of the garden (far far away from my extra sensitive nose) and they have a door to the fields to run free 🙂

        I think that it overall sounds like a win-win. He enjoys it, and you all benefit! I love animals, but my husband is very allergic. The closest I get to “back to nature” is that I am thinking about composting. I think it could cut down on the amount of garbage we produce.

        I’m sorry to hear about your husband’s allergies 😦
        First a little composting , then just a little border of vegetables , then the birds will start visiting to nibble on your vegetables/fruit and there you go 🙂

        I would love to have a bird feeder. I think that it is so relaxing to watch birds!

        Well , that is a great idea and maybe the girls would like it too , maybe helping with filling the feeder or making strings of seeds to hang for the little creatures 😀

      Thank you! It is hard to know what they understand. Communication is a challenge for both of them, but for different reasons. I am so grateful that they have beautiful characters.

    Isn’t it amazing how we bask in the afterglow of an accomplishment by a loved one.. Something new learned, a challenge overcome or the creativity in action.. Some call it pride out of love.. But I know with me, it’s like feeling thier success by proxy..

    Raizel may cook me scrambled eggs anytime, they look delicious.. And if Yaffa would open a cheese stick for me, I’ll munch on it till the eggs are done 😄

      I will tell them. Both of them are very proud of themselves. I think they feel liberated. Since I can’t eat eggs, I often don’t cook with them. But, I think they would like to eat them more.
