Store Bought Hard Boiled Eggs??!!!

Philly Ray | Feb 16, 200905:20 PM     91

I was in my local supermarket today and I happened to glance up and notice a package of "Peeled Cooked Eggs". Have cooking skills deteriorated so much that a person is now unable to simply boil water, put the eggs in the pot, and then peel them afterwards???

My friends and I used to tell a joke that you could tell the bachelors in the supermarket because they would be the ones asking for the aisle where the toast was located. I now fear that this might not only come true, but it will be offered pre-buttered as well.

On a similar note, my niece is taking a culinary course in high school. I asked her what she had cooked recently and she said "waffles". Then she told me that up until now, she just thought that waffles came in a box.
