Happy Easter, everyone!
I consider myself an Easter Egg purist. Yeah, I love those weird jackets that cling to the egg when you submerge it in hot water, and the stickers, and the wax crayon, and even the “swirl” method uses some type of oil to get your desired swirl effect, but what I really, really love are the vibrant colors that come with that kit. You know which one I’m talking about.
In the past, I’ve used the natural method that uses beets for pink, red cabbage for blue, and onion skin for yellow, but you just don’t get the colors of the rainbow that way. Well, maybe with the beets, actually. The most colorful vegetable in the world, which is why it’s my FAVORITE! What other vegetable can make you look like you murdered someone when you try to peel it after roasting?
Anyhow, most of the eggs are just pure color. I had to send a message on one, and a bunny on the other. The hubs thought he’d do an “indifferent” emoticon on another. Can you tell which one it is? I thought it looked grumpy. Even with no kids, you can still have some fun with coloring eggs. That, and you’ll have deviled eggs for daaaaaays. That or egg salad. I hear cats love chopped up hard-boiled eggs too… I’ll report back on that one.
Don’t you just LOVE opening the egg carton to see this beautiful rainbow!?
Happy Easter Love,
