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.

    • 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.
