how long is a hardboiled egg good for

first let me say that my wife she is a good sport when i write about her
sometimes i make things up just to make a point in my blog

when i saw a video on hardboiled eggs i instantly thought of my wife she

we had one class together in college
a microbiology class
my wife she initially was going to be a nurse but changed her mind after working in a hospital while in college
we took microbiology together
in the lab portion i sat right behind her as we made different bacteria grow in the lab

an aside here
we had another class together
she was in a chemistry lab that i was the lab teacher for
she always says she got an a in the class  ;) ;)
just to be correct we werent even dating when we were in those two classes
i did notice her

so in microbiology
i just now thought about it and realized that she learned how to grow things like bacteria and molds while taking that lab
she then transferred that knowledge to our refrigerator

based on how well she can grow that stuff in our refrigerator i am sure like me that she got an a in microbiology
especially the lab portion

now how does all this connect to hardboiled eggs

heres how

when we were kids we used real eggs hardboiled and decorated when we hid our easter eggs
it seems each year an egg would be missed
found months later
it was a real real rotten egg

i know hard boiled is the right way to write this
to me hardboiled just looks better

being a mischievous group were known to throw that egg at another unsuspecting sibling
even if we missed them when the egg hit the ground it provided enough sulfur smell to have its effect

a hardboiled egg should only be left in the refrigerator for 1 week with or without the shell
preferably in a covered airtight dish
i always wondered about that when i would buy those trader joes boiled eggs in a bag
even when you freshly open it there is that slight smell of a little toot

if you leave a hardboiled egg out it should only be left out for 2 hours

food like egg salad should be only in the refrigerator for 2-3 days

all this to avoid a smelly refrigerator and maybe an upset stomach

i hope maybe not though my wife she reads this today
