Hi ya'll how ya doin?? I wasn't on much yesterday cuz I actually went shopping and finally met up with a friend of mine for lunch, hadn't seen her in a few months so we had a lot to talk about. We met at the Village Inn where I ordered that build yer own breakfast and asked for my eggs to be over medium. What a shock when I get the eggs and only the white was cooked, turns out that over easy means runny egg whites which to me means raw, over medium means cooked egg whites but uncooked yolks and over hard means well done as in over cooked. I have to wonder why any restaurant would serve almost raw eggs which could lead to salmonella and other diseases. I'd always thought over easy meant cooked egg whites and runny yolks, what is your idea of over easy eggs? My friend was smart, she ordered oatmeal which is hard to screw up ..... I hate oatmeal so that never even crossed my mind. That's Max in the photo, his color has faded a bit over the years but when he was young he was a really bright orange, he's 14 now. Not bad for an old cat, right? Well Happy Tuesday folks.

@rebelann Max is so handsome. My idea of an over medium egg is the same as yours. I thought that restaurants were not allowed to serve raw eggs.

I'll let him know you said so I had the same notion and I've a mind to report this restaurant for risking our health.

@rebelann I think you should. If nothing else you will have the satisfaction of having done something about it.

Thanks I agree with you. Poor old cat has had a hard time between 2011 to 2015 and when I brought him here in June I didn't know how old he was but I wanted to make sure he would have a good rest of his life.

He might be @LadyDuck but he insists on hissing at Ally and I will not allow that so I reprimand him when I catch him hissing at her.

It did me a lot of good, sometimes I don't see anyone for days .... by choice so don't feel sorry .... so when I do get a chance to be out and about without any worries it's nice to meet with a friend.

Well good @crazyhorseladycx I have a friend who feels sorry for me because I'm out here alone, I had to remind her that with 3 cats and a dog I am hardly alone ...... she laughed and said that I should be round people more, HA, not so sure I'd survive that.

Ordering breakfast in restaurants can be tricky which is why I normally stick with omelets. What a gorgeous cat!

I don't think I'll be ordering breakfast anymore those omelets or even scrambled eggs come from those boxed eggs where they've already been scrambled up and I just prefer fresh eggs. Thank you, I think he is too.

@rebelann I don't mind the boxed eggs at all. In fact, most of the time at home I use egg beaters rather than eggs. So much easier for me!

Max is so cute @rebelann . He looks like my outside cat named Big Red. Yup, over easy means cooked whites and runny yolks in my book.

Just like daddy liked em, yuck ..... I wrote a complaint on their website and got a response. I can't believe they ignored my question about salmonella but at least they took my complaint seriously.

Over easy is an American expression and I've never known what it really means. I like my eggs with cooked whites and runny yolks. Glad you had a day out. Max looks fine, he seems to be posing for the camera.

The way you described your preference is what dad always called over easy It was a nice day to be out too, it wasn't too hot so leaving my furbabies for a few hours didn't bother me so much and I needed to be out and about. He loves attention and will do almost anything so I will pet him. Poor old guy is shedding so badly I hate to pet him but I do brush him which he enjoys as well. Boy, I thought my two were bad

Max has aged so well!! I have not eaten an egg in years. Too wiggly and slippery for me no matter how it is fixed. I hate milk too, but I am an odd duck when it comes to food.

Thanks I will have to tell Max that so many think he is handsome. Yeah, I thought I had the concept of over easy right, I think I'm going to write to Village Inn corporate to let them know what goes on in their restaurants here in El Paso.

I agree with you on the eggs--not sure how they could even be served if the whites are still runny! I think they were trying to make excuses for screwing up your eggs. Max is a beauty!

Over easy to me would mean that the white of the egg is cooked and the yolk is runny. I like mine over hard as in over cooked. lol Max is very handsome guy. I feel in love as soon as I seen his beautiful face. He looks great for his age.

I wish I knew what that stupid manager was thinking when she actually told me that over easy was when an egg is only flipped once ..... didn't she know that to flip an egg the white has to be cooked? K, I answered that, obviously not I think he's handsome as well and he does have a very sweet personality.
