EoMEoTE#7 – the limerick edition

There is a young African lady

Whose eggy events are quite crazy!

Just scramble or fry -

The month-end is nigh!

So send me your eggs – don’t be lazy!

Last month haikus, this month limericks.  Off you go.

So how do you get to play along and become part of the world-wide phenomenon that is EoMEoTE?  Well, it couldn’t be easier.  Here are the rules:

1. Make a dish using eggs

2. The dish must also use bread (any type of carbohydrate- product to which dry heat has been applied!) under, on, alongside or near the eggs.

Then write about it and include a photo if you can, post the story to your blog and leave me a comment with the link (or e-mail it to me if you don’t have a blog) and sometime around the first weekend in June I will do a wrap-up of all the entries.   No pressure, no competition.  Just loads of really really bad egg puns and some eggcelent limericks (see what I mean??)

So beat it – go cook eggs!

    I’ve been avidly following EoMEoTE from the beginning and now I might have something up my sleeve. Will post in a few days!

    Miss Jeanne…I’m doing my entry tomorrow, but I thought you should have my limerick today:
    Once a month an event draws a crowd
    If you cook with eggs and carbs, you’re allowed
    Cook Sister! holds sway
    Send your entry…don’t delay
    Spark a flame, snap a shot, she’ll be proud!
    Hee, hee- hope you like it…

    There once was a young lad from Oz
    Who completely forgot when it was
    When to his great shame
    He remembered the name
    He’d forgotten because well because.

  5. says

    Hey Jeanne! I know it’s called the “END of the month,” but can I please send you something the beginning of next month? Like, say, the first?
    Thanks!

    End of Month Egg on Toast Extravaganza – Limerick Edition.

    It’s End of Month Eggs on Toast,
    Created by Jeanne, the talented host
    This month a limerick
    Will do the trick
    To explain your entry and culinary post
    What came to mind was a Monte Cristo
    But with a twist, ala the Fool’s Bistro
    Bread, eggs, chicken and cheese
    Add something savory, to please –
    Stack ‘em up on the grill, then eat the little feast-o.

    Hi, sorry about that where was I?
    There once was a man from Nantucket
    Whose egg was so old you would chuck it
    It’s really not spoiled
    And one that’s hard-boiled
    Isn’t really so bad if you suck it

    EoMEoTE 7: Pisto (Limerick Edition)

    Look at breakfast, how festive it is
    For sure you’re going to like this
    Meat and peas – no pressure
    Of course, a few eggs for good measure
    Alas we have a meal we can’t miss!
    The dish is very simple, it can be whipped up in the most rudiment…

    there once was an egghead called bill /
    his eggs mixed with cream gave me thrills / his corn dipped in batter / was good but what matters / is he must learn to use CAPITALS!

    Phew!! Went away for the long weekend and got back to this HUGE pile of comments!! Yippeee! Nothing like loads of comments to make you feel loved. I did feel suitably mortified when I discovered that *somebody* had remembered my throwaway remark last month that all this month’s contributions were to be submitted in the form of Petrarchan sonnets. Erm, well, yes. It wouldn’t have been so bad if the eagle-eyed person in question hadn’t actually WRITTEN a sonnet!! So now I sit here feeling mortified and trying to compose a sonnet for the first time in like 10 years. Oi vay.
    Anyhow, let’s start with the easy part – responding to your comments:
    Stephanie,
    Top marks for your speedy response to my post! And thanks for your contribution – sounds delicious!! Another one in the tradition of sweet EoMEoTE dishes!
    Karen,
    Look forward to whatever it is you have up your sleeve ;-) Would be great to have you playing along!
    Sylvie,
    Thanks for your contribution – and yes, of course Panko breadcrumbs count! It’s just toast with an extra step!
    To Saffron, Pinkcocoa, Gwenda and Clare
    Welcome to EoMEoTE! Always nice to see new faces, sunny side up (so to speak, ha ha ha!). I’m looking forward to checking out your no doubt eggcelent contributions. And Clare – terrible poetry is practically compulsory for EoMEoTE ;-)
    Moira,
    Well done on the limerick! :-D And thanks for the contribution – anything wrapped in a tortilla is all good in my book!!
    Nicole,
    Thanks for joining in again! Bacon in the sandwich maker? Cool! Anythign that saves on washing up is OK by me…
    Lady Amalthea,
    Hey, this is EoMEoTE, the event where the rules are far more rubbery than the eggs – see them bend!! Of course you may submit your entry in early June – I’m unlikely to do mine before the weekend, so you still have plenty of time. Look forward to seeing what you come up with!
    Sue,
    Thanks for your contribution – and I look forward to the even more whimsically named “son-in-law eggs” next month!
    Jennifer,
    Cool limerick – and innovative contribution! So are you? (from Spokane, that is…!) :P
    Elizabeth,
    Oh dear, a thousand apologies!! I was totally mortified when I read your post and recalled that I had in fact mentioned Petrarchan sonnets last month as being compulsory this month. I can promise you that time constraints contributed to the sonnet requirement being downgraded to a limerick (not the general dumbing-down of my blog, nor my mean and capricious streak…)! Give me a while and I will respond in kind.
    McAuliflower,
    Aaaah, we aim to please! And way to go on not one but TWO limericks! This is definitely raising the bar… Thanks for humouring me!
    Culinary Fool,
    I see you rose beautifully to the challenge laid down by McAuliflower and produced yet another limerick in two verses! And as for working in Monte Cristo into the limerick – well that “counts” for double points! :D
    Augustus,
    Hahahaha! I think we should send that off to Bill (or at least his typesetter!!). Your contribution looks quite speggtacular though – I was actually looking at the scrambled egg recipe last night, but didn’t have the requisite large quantities of cream in the house. Ah well, my arteries can breathe a sigh of relief…
    Chubby Hubby,
    Soft boiled, hard boiled… it’s all relative, really! We coddle all our participants here, regardless of how boiled (or fried!) they are. Love the post – and it’s good to see you are taking the non-discriminatory, non-sexist credo of EoMEoTE to heart! ;-) I always wondered why the only the men had a toasted sandwich named after them…!
    Upulie,
    Welcome back after your not-at-all-shaky start last month! I can’t wait to see what your contribution will be!
    Cath,
    Hey, no problem! Glad you liked the limerick theme. Man cannot live by bread (and eggs) alone – there must also be some culture involved :P I love your limerick – it does make me wonder thoug: would EoMEoTE by any other name still smell as sweet? hahahahah!
    And last but not least, our co-founder in Nantucket, Anthony:
    Two people who’d never met
    Got acquainted over the ‘Net.
    Put together a plan
    For eggs, bread and pans.
    And was it successful? YOU BET!
    Now monthly in every corner,
    From the coldest climes to the warme,:
    You will find eggs a-boil
    And with bread people toil,
    And combine the latter and former.

    There once was a girl named Lynette
    Who made deep fried yolks of regret
    she threw them in the bin
    and resolved once again
    to make blog-worthy eggs this week yet.

  14. says

    Jeanne, it is I who should apologize! Of course, I knew your comment about a sonnet requirement was a joke. I also knew that I wasn’t going to manage a post that included eggs and toast, what with no eggs at all in the fridge. And I so wanted to join in! Silly me though. I wrote the sonnet before seeing the announcement for the limerick.
    Besides, I wanted to show off that I _could_ write a sonnet (sort of). I’m sure we must have had to write one in grade 8 or so, but I haven’t tried since then.

    EoMEoTE#7: No limerick, only eggs

    I do love my eggs…very, very much. They are one of my favorite things to eat–any time of day or night– which is why I’ve grown so fond of Anthony and Jeanne’s EoMEoTE– End of Month Egg on Toast

  16. says

    Ta Jeanne!
    On a limerick he was to hear
    Spicey did so shed a tear
    I think it’s great
    But don’t tell me mates
    They’ll all be convinced that I’m queer.

  17. says

    Young Spicey did go to Nantucket
    And said, “You don’t like it? Then…pluck it!”
    He’d leap out of bed
    (into puddles of sass he did tread)
    and order fried clams by the bucket.

  18. says

    Rhyming powers…too low… must..try…free verse
    why
    are eggs
    round
    yet they are not circles
    moira
    is smart
    maybe
    she will know
    yes

  19. says

    Nupur,
    Great limerick – and I’m familiar with the feeling of ending up over-fed instead of hungry!! Egg float sounds intriguing… Thanks for joining in the fun.
    Lynn,
    “Yolks of regret” – ha!! :D Still looking forward to your whites of contentment (or similar!). Or failing that, just more eggy limericks will do!
    Elizabeth,
    Well, scarily enough, when I put up last month’s post, I did have a vague notion of writing a sonnet as a post, but a) as real life intruded, time ran out and b) I didn’t want to put people off participating in what is meant to be the foodie blogosphere’s most inclusive event by making the requirements too tedious… However, since you have started the ball rolling, I may just have something up my sleeve…!
    Upulie,
    Welcome back to EoMEoTE! No limerick? Watch out – Spicey and I may give you detention and make you write a villanelle instead :P Seriously, thanks for playing along – haven’t seen many coddled eggs in EoMEoTE, so yours make a welcome addition.
    Viv (via Anthony!)
    So glad you could join us! But as I said to Upulie above, watch out that the limerick police don’t come looking for you!! Maybe you want to follow where Moira and Anthony have led and try some free verse? I mean, it’s easy, you just scramble the words (ho ho ho!)
    Moira,
    Hmm, yes, have you also noticed Anthony’s new-found obsession with Nantucket?? Well done on keeping the limerick clean – I know I couldn’t have (but then I’m well known for my Tourettes!!)
    Mrs D and Chopper Dave,
    Welcome to EoMEoTE, where you can NEVER be too late – there’s always room for one more! Great limerick – and merely a foretaste of the treasures that the post itself holds. A fantastic debut indeed! Hope to see you again.
    Cwc,
    Once again, you can never be too late for EoMEoTE! We’re always glad to have you…
    Lyn,
    Oh dear, see now what you’ve done – unleashed the inner songwriter in Anthony!! Freed him from the constraints of a known poetic form and unleashed his ovoid stream of eggspanded consciousness on us!! To the hills, to the hills…
    Anthony.
    I would like to say that words fail me but nobody would believe me… ;-)

  20. says

    Free verse?! Free verse I can do (badly!)! The very Vogons rival shall I!
    Spicey, you can find things that rhyme with “Nantucket?” I am in awe. What rhymes with “anthethesis?”

  21. says

    Ah, Jeanne, now the truth comes out… I have NO life; therefore I had time to write not one but two sonnets. (You don’t want to see the Spenserian sonnet I wrote first.) You have something up your sleeve? Now I’m scared. I hope you aren’t going to make us write something epic like Ryme of the Ancient Mariner! I’m not sure if our market carries albatross eggs….
    Anthony… STOP IT!!! (Does anyone know where I can get a new monitor? I’ve GOT to stop drinking things while I’m sitting at the computer!)
    Moira, you’re brilliant. (But quit it.)
    -Elizabeth
