Vous avez des idées de recettes à faire avec des oeufs cuits durs?

Les élèves à l'école de mon frère reçoivent des collations parce que c'est une école pauvre. Mais ils mangent pas tout, donc au lieu de jeter tout ça, mon frère dit aux élèvex de rapporter les extras et lui ramène le reste chez nous et c'est moi qui mange tout.
Cette semaine, ils ont reçu...... des oeufs. Genre un oeuf cuit dur, sorti de sa coquille, et emballé individuellement dans du plastique. (complètement absurde, je sais)

"Who sent you?"
The intruder froze.
"You haven't come to seek gold or glory for yourself," the dragon said.
It was a short, sad, familiar story.

"Others?"
The dragon called for his adopted children.
"I hoard family."

After many years he finally found the hidden temple, where monks of an ancient order were said to guard the oldest, strongest Word Of Power.
They proudly showed him the Word.
"No?" he exclaimed. "The Word is 'no'? That holds no power!"
The monks looked away from him in sadness.
