Things That Make Me Wonder

Add Image

The Other Family Human bought a Hanukkah present for our household. It is an egg-poacher made to be used in the microwave. The other morning, she used it to fix us egg sandwiches on English muffins. Delicious.

After breakfast, I looked at the egg poacher to see if it was dishwasher safe. Obligingly, there were words printed on it which read, "freezer/dishwasher safe".

Well, I put it in the dishwasher, but since that moment, I have been occupied by wondering under what circumstances one would ever need to put an egg poacher in the freezer. Any ideas out there?

Say, for instance, you used it to poach some eggs, but then someone phoned and invited you out for breakfast at the last moment. You wouldn't want to throw out your perfectly good poached eggs, so naturally you'd freeze them for later use. Either that, or you happen to like cold poached eggs and this seemed like a simple way to prepare them.

Of course. Simple but brilliant.

Maybe there are other things poached-egg size that may need to be frozen? I leave the rest to your imagination.
