Oeuf en coqutte pour tout le monde! by mrsteabag on 21 December 2009 2:35am
 
Well, wouldn't know it? We celebrate another birthday for His Royal Arfness Orion Ranier today! The celebration includes oeuf en coquette for breakfast, a run to Petsmart or Go Dog Go to pick out some biskies, and a walk, weather permitting. NOW he's 13 (thought it was last year--I apologized for the error) and still going strong. Ok, he started snoring, but he still has lots of energy and the vet is very happy with him. Oeufs en coquotte all around!

Oh that reminds me! Our friends have recently acquired 3 kittens - not all at the same time - and they have called one Orion!!

When Veronica txt me to tell me about Orion, I thought she had called him ONION!!

Onion is a joke between us, because when we were in Turkey one year, Veronica wanted more onion with her meal so she looked in the dictionary for onion and then asked the waiter for 'Anyan'. He didn't know what she meant so she checked again and started laughing. She had looked at the phonetic of 'onion', not the Turkish meaning!! So now if we have a meal in Turkey we ask her if she wants some 'anyan'!! So you can see why 'Onion' would've been a good name!!

[Actually I did EXACTLY the same thing myself the first year we went to Turkey (which incidentally I am STILL trying to live down!!). We drove to Cappadocia and whilst there we bought a Turkish-English dictionary. That night we went for a meal at a restaurant that was actually in one of the 'fairy chimneys'. After the meal I checked up the words for 'The Bill Please', and then asked a very bemused waiter for 'De beel pliz'. Now of course I know it is Hesap Lutfen but I still get members of the family suggesting I ask for De beel pliz'!!!]

Well, mrsteabag, that thread title got me puzzling over what it meant but I eventually got there even though you had spelt coquette 3 different ways!

Ken Dunn: Maybe mrsteabag was having a little "yolk"[sic] at our expense?

I think the french usually say "oeufs a la coquette",but why??
Surely it can't have any connection with the other meaning of "coquette",which is a young girl fastidious about her appearance,etc?

Happy Birthday, Orion!

Orion says "woof, woof, ARF!" Translation: "thanks, everyone!"
Ken, I spelled it three different ways? Must have been really creative that day :).
bIG, as far as I know, it doesn't. It's an egg baked in a ramekin with some cream, a bit of cheese, maybe some ham or turkey or whatever else you could put in there. Pop in the oven in a waterbath at 350 for 12-15 min. or in the microwave on high for 30-45 seconds.
