    It looks like it should be carved rather than served with a spoon!

    Being a widower my culinary expertise was always pretty basic, hence my reliance on the microwave. My microwaved scrambled egg is edible enough - I'm not about to use it as a still life subject for a sculpture or painting.

    Also use the microwave to make my porridge as it limits the washing-up to a bowl and spoon.

    We might disagree about your politics Stuffers but love the 'cut of your jib' about kitchen related practicalities.

    Forget "Nigella". I to subscribe to those maestros d'cuisne for the REAL man....Col Esterol and Art Attak!!!!

    Fair play.

    My weekly scrambled egg is a bit of a ritual. On a Sunday morning after taking the dog out around 6:15* and visiting the car boot sale, I come home and always treat myself to scrambled egg on toast, orange juice and coffee.

    No mucking about with whisks and milk. Toast on (granary preferred, dial no. 4), wee knob of butter in a small frying pan. Two big farm eggs, straight in, let them cook for 30 secs before touching them, season. Gently stir with a wooden spoon until no liquid visible in the pan. Heat off, butter the toast and serve. Sorted.

    *Where's my medal, Jan?

    There's no medal for 06:15, as well you know. Get up quarter of an hour earlier and I'll try to find the medal for you.

    Just sounds bizarre for a Sunday, unless you've just got in from the binge.

    Just how I do my scrambled eggs. Couldn't be easier.
