How NOT to fry an Egg....

OK~ We are in a heat wave here in Iowa, and I had this wild idea last night. I thought to myself, "I wonder if it is hot enough to fry an egg on the driveway?" Well, I tried it.

Time to find an egg.....Searched for the perfect one and found it!

Made a mental note to the temp outside...It's only 96 degrees, but it feels well over 110 degrees!

I cracked the egg in the driveway and this is what it looked like when I cracked it open and this is what it looked like after 10 minutes!

Lesson Learned:  I don't think I had the right type of asphalt for frying an egg and it probably wasn't hot enough outside! In this Moms opinion, if the weather man says it feels like 115 degrees outside, this egg should have cooked up! Oh well...Better luck next time~ After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?


  1. OMG! I can't believe you actually tried this...Classic! I agree. It seems logical that the egg should have cooked if it "felt like 115 degrees". Sounds like something Myth Busters would do.

    Thanks for the laugh.

  2. Love your presentation of the experience.



I always love feedback on my blog!
