    When difficult child asked, I explained the floating test. Put the egg in water and if it floats then it is bad. He was still puzzled as he headed toward the kitchen. Finally, "but I am using milk?!"

    "difficult child, you do not crack the egg!". :slap:

    Lightbulb moment for difficult child!

    Honestly though, I only knew one way to tell if an egg was bad. Crack it open and if it stunk it was bad. I didn't know about the bowl of water trick. My gramma probably did but never thought or never really needed to show me.

    If you crack it open and it has a chick in it, roll it in seasoned flour and fry!
