Fried Eggs and Coffee

My kids have been asking for fried eggs and coffee -- for those of you that know me, ya'll know I took one look at my children and requested a DNA test.  I do not eat eggs that often, ESPECIALLY not a runny fried egg and ESPECIALLY not with a cup of coffee.
My Dad was visiting and made a pot of coffee and so Cameron asked for a cup.  Dad made him a cup and Cameron kept saying "No milk, no sug-ah, I want it just like Pappy" (GAG!) ... this all started on our last visit to my parents.  Dad was drinking coffee and Mom made Cameron a cup - granted it was MOSTLY milk and just a teensy bit of coffee.  This time it was all BLACK coffee and the joker DRANK IT.  UGH!  I prefer an icy cold CAN O' COKE for my morning 'caffeine' ...I can get past the coffee, but a fried egg!!??!?!  
Then today, Kennedy asked for a fried egg in a piece of bread.  WHAT!?!??!  She said that when she was at Aunt Shawn's house, she heard about it and wanted me to make it for her. I asked her "Did Aunt Shawn make it for you?" (because she SO would have had Kennedy asked) ... anyway, I get the piece of bread and b/c I don't have a cookie cutter, I used a wine glass to make the circle, because I am a REFINED Southern girl -- I put loads of butter in the pan and put the bread in there. I cracked the egg and was doing good until I broke the yolk a little. I gave it to her and my child, my sweet, beautiful almost 6yr old daughter DEVOURED the egg and bread combo - while I am looking at her and swearing that a band of thieves came in during the night and stole MY daughter's soul. THEN, she asked me to make another one ......

This time I did not break the yolk, it was actually very nicely done -- as far as disgusting fried eggs go -- and I even thought to myself that my Dad would be so proud - let alone my husband (who is not here otherwise he would have been making it). I place the bread/egg on her plate and she cuts into it and I hear:

GROOOSSSSSSSSS!!!! MOMMMMM-MMMYYY, the egg .... it's not DONE .... this is DISGUSTING!!

I smiled ... SHEW!! That was a CLOSE ONE!!

Look at you being at Domestic Goddess!

They are called crocodile eyes, but at the Trotti house we call them Egg With A Hole..why I'm not sure that's what my husband named them when he was a little boy and it stuck. I'm so not an egg fan, a scrambled egg once in a while is ok but anything runny, so not happening, but I do have t admit they are yummy!

oops I meant ALL Domestic Goddess.

Next time just tar the center of the bread out with your hands, come on let your inner red neck come out to play!
