how to easily separate an egg

Did you know you can easily separate an egg from it's white?  The video below (in Chinese, strangely enough) demonstrates it as such:
1) crack your egg and empty everything onto a dish
2) hold an empty plastic water bottle above it, one with a narrow neck.
3) squeeze the bottle gently (like you're crushing it) and then put the lip of the bottle over the yolk
4) release your hand's pressure on the bottle and the air pressure within the bottle will suck up ONLY the yolk.
5) squeeze the bottle over your desired drop location (another dish, the sink, etc.) and the yolk will pop back out of the bottle.  How simple and amazing is that?

This will be my new method of separating eggs.  I'm very impressed!

Food on a stik, anyone??

Time to start cookin' again. Okay, so maybe none of you stopped doing that...ahem.

No matter...it's time to start sharing some of your recipes again. If you have never been, come! If you have been, come! KNow someone who would like to come, great. The more the merrier.

August's theme is Food on a Stick. Anything....be creative. Cook it up, bring it and one copy of the recipe to share.

Let's do it Tuesday, Aug 21 at 12pm.

I, Stef, will host it at my new place. Not sure I want to post my address here...and it isn't listed in the ward directory. Email me (stef.burns at gmail.com) and I can send you my address, or call me 898- three two three five.

See ya there!!

ASL Cllasses...again.

Yep, it's that time again. Well, at least that time is approaching.

If you don't already know, Brian and/or I have been teaching ASL classes out of our home. We do it for a few reasons. Talking to a deaf person when you don't know how to talk to a deaf person is a little intimidating. So the more people we teach, the more people Brian has to talk to. Granted, most of them are women...but I haven't heard him complain too much about that.

It also provides a time for me to chat with and make new friends. For an hour. Every week. Not bad, right?

In the past we have just done the classes during the week, during the day. Usually Thursday mornings. We are still going to be doing that. But we are also considering teaching a class on Saturday mornings if there is enough interest.

The classes are free. They are usually in our home. We are hoping to get things going again in September.

If you are interested or know of people who are interested, please let me know. My email address is stef dot burns@ gmail dot com. You can also call me 816 eight zero seven four.

Oh, I'm Stef Burns, btw.
