egg freshness...always good to know!

How To Check If An Egg Is Edible or Bad, Fresh or Not So Much, Throw Away or Keep #food #howto #funfact #FurPetsandForPeople
egg freshness good idea
egg freshness. I never can remember if sinking means it's a fresh egg or a bad egg.
How to Tell if an Egg is Bad... Place the egg into a bowl of cold water. The water level should be about 2 times higher than the egg. Fresh eggs will sink to the bottom of the bowl and probably lie on their sides. Slightly older eggs (about one week) will lie on the bottom but bob slightly. If the egg balances on its smallest tip, with the large tip reaching for the top, it's probably close to three weeks old. Eggs that float at the surface are bad and should not be consumed.

Mini Taco Shells: nestle in a few small—around 6-inch—tortillas in the spaces between the cups of your upside-down muffin tin. Preheat the oven to about 375-degrees, sprinkle the tortillas with some salt and a little water, and form them into the bowl-like shape you're familiar with. Toss them in the oven for about 10 minutes, and you'll have taco bowls.
[g "that's a good idea brd!"] Make mini taco bowls: turn your muffin pan upside down, spray with cooking oil and bake corn or flour tortillas. Perfect. Fill with anything you like! Salad, meat, dips, etc...

Rub the cut edge of cheese with some butter to keep it from getting moldy.

Applying butter to hard cheeses and onions helps their shelf life. Who knew?
Butter Prolongs Shelf Life If you're worried about how long your hard cheeses will last, apply a light coat of butter to keep them fresh and free of mold. Each time you use the cheese, coat the cut edge with butter before you re-wrap it and put it back in the fridge. This trick also works well for onions. Rub butter on the cut surface and wrap the leftover onion in aluminum foil before refrigerating it.
