  1. Instead of eggs in a crockpot, I would make these...

    Instead of eggs in a crockpot, I would make these in advance and serve them at room temperature. Add or omit whatever you want. I’ve done spinach, parmesan, onion, mozzarella, pineapple or whatever...

    No twisting is necessary. First two posts on this thread. If there is more, I'm not looking for it right now.
  3. Let’s see if I have this straight. It’s okay for...

    Let’s see if I have this straight. It’s okay for you to have a fear of leaving your hypothetical child alone with a known adult, but it’s not okay for me to worry about the unknown adults (or...
  4. Maybe because you jump on a thread about a child,...

    Maybe because you jump on a thread about a child, never intending to have one, and tell parents how you think it should be done? Then you get testy and overly dramatic when they disagree with your...

    Wireweiners got the point across with the appropriate amount of befuddlement so please tack my words on to that post. :lol:
  6. After reading only the first few paragraphs, it...

    After reading only the first few paragraphs, it doesn’t change my mind. The kid had a safe place to play his video game at Grandma’s house. If he insisted on going to the store to buy new earphones...
  7. If I saw the mother (or father) walk away and...

    If I saw the mother (or father) walk away and could stop her, I’d first try that. If stopping her didn’t work or she blew me off, I’d call the police.

    Around here, leaving a kid in a car isn’t an...
  8. You should have said below freezing or above 80...

    You should have said below freezing or above 80 with the windows shut. 50 degrees is too moderate for most of this crowd to care. :lol:
  9. From what I pieced together in the second article...

    From what I pieced together in the second article (post #17):

    Father dropped kid off and drove home.

    Kid never showed up so father went back to look for him.

    In the meantime, someone noticed...
  10. I didn’t say anything about your child. Just...

    I didn’t say anything about your child. Just repeated the tone of many comments made on this very thread about parents who think their children are too precious or too stupid to walk a mile.

    You...
  11. Right, I’m a busybody just looking for a chance...

    Right, I’m a busybody just looking for a chance to get other parents in trouble or make them feel bad. Wrong! I take care of my own so they don’t end up on the evening news or, worse, a topic of...
  12. I find your acceptance of being molested, like...

    I find your acceptance of being molested, like it’s the natural consequence of stepping on a nail when barefoot, bothersome. You deserved better. I’m trying to do better.

    As for making...
  13. This is a circular argument but here goes… Feel...

    This is a circular argument but here goes… Feel free to keep judging me.

    I’ve never once said or implied that kids shouldn’t be disciplined or walk uphill both ways in 3 feet of snow. What I...
  14. In order not to be judged about perceived...

    In order not to be judged about perceived treatment for any living creature, you’d need to live alone and in a bubble.

    For every comment on COTH about how kids should be tougher and able to take...
  15. I doubt that’s any consolation to Somer’s family....

    I doubt that’s any consolation to Somer’s family. I bet they would give anything to be in this man’s shoes and have her back. You aren’t the rare statistic, until you are, and most times there are...
  16. Then walk or bike or ride a camel with them. Duh!...

    Then walk or bike or ride a camel with them. Duh! I do it every day.

    This whole “lazy kids and parents these days” is totally backwards. It takes far more time and energy to actually be with...
  17. For reference, here is what happened to Somer...

    For reference, here is what happened to Somer Thompson. She was walking the usual path from school with her siblings and ran ahead. Never made it home and they found her body in a landfill several...
  18. Forget about the type of road, amount of traffic...

    Forget about the type of road, amount of traffic and how long the walk was for a second. Am I the only one concerned that this child got into someone else's car??? Sure it was a neighbor who was...
  19. I make food from Cooking Light most of the time...

    I make food from Cooking Light most of the time and store everything on myrecipes.com. The ingredients for CL are usually easy to find and can be used in several recipes (but not taste the same) so...

    I had two, long term, non-military friends working at the Pentagon on Sept. 11.

    One was outside, heard the plane coming and saw it hit. He’d just left a meeting with someone who went outside for...
  21. I made these a couple different ways this morning...

    I made these a couple different ways this morning and would say they are totally worth it!

    First batch was 1 egg in each small mason jar and I just used the pot lid over everything. Cooked them...
  22. Unless I missed something, you don't boil the...

    Unless I missed something, you don't boil the water while the eggs are in it. "Simmer" at the end should be fine for tongs or hands. My arms are covered in scars from trying to get things out of...
  23. Invalids, husbands and children that prefer their...

    Invalids, husbands and children that prefer their yolks runny. :lol: I will still make an omelet for myself and scrambled for the boy kid. The novelty won’t wear off quickly for us if the other 3-6...
  24. I had no idea what coddled eggs were 15 minutes...

    I had no idea what coddled eggs were 15 minutes ago, and now I’m going to make them for breakfast tomorrow in my itty bitty mason jars that I either got from Target or the grocery store.

    Runny...

    OP, were you at the grocery store in front of me last week? The cashier (young guy, new to the job and a little nervous) accidentally dropped a kale leave on the floor while he was trying to find...
