Cracking good

A friend who worked in another wing of the Maryknoll Sisters’ kitchen at the same time I was working in the bakery sent me a fabulous method imported from China for separating eggs.  (Don’t worry if you don’t understand Mandarin.  It’s completely unnecessary to accomplishing the task.)

toxic-clean Yes, I confess I tried it.  It works just like a dream, but it’s hardly worth the effort when you are separating eggs for only two people.

The Maryknoll bakery, though, was baking for 350.

I would have loved to show Sister Anne Cecelia how it works!  Somehow, I think she might have been more impressed than Mother Mary Coleman was with my attempts to teach her about Karl Rahner and the encyclicals of John XXIII.



  1. teaching coleman about rahner and the encyclicals……really! unbelievable! isn’t that a little ass-backwards?

    • Well, I was very young. And very naive. And pretty ignorant. Not to mention arrogant. Oh please, I do hope I’ve grown up a little. I suppose it was pretty hard for MMC too. She didn’t understand us any better than we understood her.
