Usually, it is my husband who takes care of breakfast when he is at home. But since the kids are so 'horribly' hungry as they said, I moved to the kitchen -- turned on the tea machine, (the tables are already set-up the night before), spread the choiced cold cuts and cheese on a plate, boiled water for cocoa and was whipping the scrambled egg.
And then came MC - 'mama, are you doing the egg?´ she asked excitedly.
When I nodded my answer, she pushed me aside and proudly declared, 'you dont know how to cook the egg. I have often watched the 'eier mann' (egg man) in our hotel in the Philippines. I know what to do.' And pushed a chair near the stove to be able to reach everything.
So I watched. And she proceeded to slowly pour the mixture into the waiting hot pan with melted butter which I have already prepared.
She let the mixture settle down for a few seconds before using the spatula to scratch and turn; she did this until declaring that the egg is now good scrambled.
She wont let go saying she could also transfer the scrambled egg into a plate. She did, until she asked help with the last bits.
And here she is proudly showing off her scrambled egg which she and her little sister swiftly devoured; leaving mama and papa a little something, like the smell of the egg :D
MC's a big girl now no? I cant wait to experience my first breakfast in bed prepared by the girls.
