First, peel your eggs



Before the party you have to peel the quails eggs. My mother offered to help me and do them all. There were a lot of eggs. 18 x 3. Whatever that is. So she boiled and peeled the day before, while I whisked and cooked and steamed and pickled. Then my dad offered to help, too.


Turns out peelings quails eggs is not his cup of tea. He quit.


 My mother soldiered on, neatly. 

Occasionally a waiting corgi swallowed a defective egg.

  1. So nice to see your lovely parents working together. Suspect they have done a lot of that over the years.

    1. Not much domestic cooperation, I must say. This would be a first. Although my dad has always been good at helping with washing dishes.

    1. Pretty much like hen's eggs, just smaller :-)

  3. there is a tip you can try, putting the hard-boiled eggs in a container with a little water, close the lid and shake gently, it helps to remove the shell quickly.

    1. Yes, good tip. I usually do that and forgot to pass it on to the egg peelers!
