The Perfect Mothers day Gift..

Yet another gadget that claims to give you the perfect boiled egg.

Instead of using time to work out whether an egg is cooked to your liking, this device measures heat.

Made of clear non-toxic red plastic and shaped like an egg, it is marked with measurements for hard-boiled, medium and soft.

It is placed in the water along with the eggs, where it sits on the bottom of the pan.

As the water heats up the red shade starts to turn black, beginning around the edges and gradually moving towards the centre.

When the proportion of red and black indicates the eggs are at the level of hardness required, you simply remove them from the water and tuck in

The Egg-Perfect Colour Changing Egg Timer costs £4.97 and is being sold in high street shops as well as online. A spokesman for the makers said: “Over or undercooked eggs are a thing of the past with this heat-sensitive egg timer.

I am a bit of a sucker for gadgets, especially ones for the kitchen.

I can never get my boiled eggs just right so yes I would buy this gadget But what about you ??  or do you think its just another useless gadget and a waste of money ??

Simple Social Sunday walk

Today I had an invitation to walk with The Simple Social ladies group.

They were doing the third leg of the Fen Rivers Way, which means they would have walked from Cambridge to Kings Lynn, a total of 50 miles.

Today they did the 12 mile stretch from Downham Market to Kings Lynn. a most enjoyable walk along the river, past the ruins of Wiggenhall St Peter Church, and into King Lynn along the Green Quay.

At King’s Lynn, the Fen Rivers Way connects with the Wash Coast Path (through the Peter Scott Walk) taking walkers along the remote coast marshes into Lincolnshire, or the Nar Valley Way which leads you into the heart of Norfolk.

We ended the walk by going to Bradley’s wine bar for a well deserved  Lunch.

A most enjoyable walk was had by all, Geoff made an excellent walk leader and thanks to Caroline for inviting me along. 

The information from my pedometer was….. 

12.6 miles

26,339 steps

1,377 cals
