Week 23 Day 2 - Microwave Eggs and Moore Tornado


My grandma got us the coolest microwave hard-boiled egg cooker. This is really great news. Why?

  1. We eat hard-boiled eggs every day, great source of protein, and quick to grab for lunch
  2. It's a pain to cook them on the stove, with timers/pots/boiling water/messes
  3. We now have an electric stover, and it's terrible
  4. I haven't had an egg open easy since we have lived here
 Now this little contraption can cook up to four eggs at a time. You simply fill the bottom of the egg-shaped container with water, up to the fill line. Add your eggs into the fitted holder, secure the top, pop it in the microwave for about 8 minutes in mine, and voila! hard-boiled eggs.

You can find them here : Amazon

I see there are also electric egg cookers as well. A little more expensive but I am sure they work great too.

My wife said she was cramping some this morning. Occasionally she does, but we aren't sure why. It's normal and most likely because of her stomach stretching. At least that's what I think. But I don't know much about women stuff either.

I have a dentist appointment today, and after that we are going back to get another ultrasound. The doctor called for a follow-up from the one last week, and she explained that we only got a couple pictures, and they weren't very good. Also, that the girl seemed to be in a rush to get out of there, and was getting frustrated because the baby wasn't positioned how she wanted her. When we asked about the 3d images she told us "Sorry, but it doesn't look like you will be able to get any today." The doctor said that is absolutely unacceptable and that he was sorry, and has had complaints about her before. He rescheduled her to come back today and promised a better experience and ultrasound. Oh, she also measured some things inaccurately. So maybe I will have some better pictures to share tonight!

I want to share this footage from the tornado in Moore, Oklahoma. My prayers go out to the familes that lost not only everything they owned, but also lives.


We got a few more pictures of our daughter earlier at the ultrasound visit. However, her head was faced down most of the time so our 3d pictures still aren't that great. Better than last time though.

Was able to get a little time out on the bike today. We needed milk and a couple things from the grocery store so I strapped on my backpack and took a ride. It was nice today, around 80 and partially sunny. She made loaded baked potato soup for dinner. It was really good. I am usually not a soup guy, but this was almost like a stew. Not bad. Plenty leftover for lunch tomorrow. I am seriously thinking about starting another blog out of all the stuff she makes, no recipes ever, no formal training, just from her head or past family recipes. Very impressive.
