The Special Day is fast approaching when eggs take the head seat at the breakfast/dinner table and a symbolism of new life.
Brown eggs are the best for eating but not so for dyeing.I like fluffy scrambled eggs for breakfast. Sunny side up were my fave as a kid but I no longer care for them. I have a kid who called them 'eye-ball' eggs and if that didn't turn one from eating them, I don't know what would. I have no use for soft boiled eggs and haven't a clue how to make them (nor am I interested) but a good hard boiled egg sandwich can't be beat. I swoon over a delicious quiche.
Found these egg cozies on etsy and thought they were adorable. I know of one person who would love them (Chem-girl) so I may need to whip up one or two just for her Easter box mailing.
I have made peanut butter eggs for decades and this year is no different. I no longer need as many for my immediate family (this one is on a diet, that one lives too far away etc) but it won't stop me from making them and giving a few away. Chem-girl could be so lucky to find one in her Easter box since she can't make or receive deviled eggs.
Last but not least, I, the hubby (and probably DD#1 and SIL) will be dyeing eggs. If you know
me, you know I absolutely love color and that love certainly isn't confined to just yarn, fabric or clothing. I enjoy dyeing yarn and anything else for that matter. These eggs were dyed wiith natural dyes. I doubt I will dye with naturals this year but I plan to fuss with it for the next.
We have some great family videos of holiday fun with our kids. One of them was the year of our 3 yr old DD #1 and our then 8 yr old son who loudly announced during the taping, "eeewwww.....she's drinking the dye". I have no idea how this kid stomached drinking dye with vinegar but couldn't down a tablespoon of cherry flavored cough syrup when needed. Kids!
What is your favorite egg?
