Happy Easter

I had a friend bring me the four pack of McCormick food coloring last year before I found Colorante in Guayaquil to be able to make Easter Eggs. First, coloring brown eggs is a bit of a problem as no matter what color you use the eggs will come out an unattractive shade of brown. I have learned to put a bit of vinegar into the water as this seems to take a bit of the brown off of the eggs and then dry them after they have boiled with a clean towel.  They still will not look as pretty as pure white eggs. But we use what we have here so – here goes.

This morning I am hard boiling the eggs and then making some other special things for our Easter table. I ordered a smoked ham from my truck vendor but he never showed on Thursday and I have not seen him yet this morning so I must assume that we will not be getting a ham for Easter dinner. My second choice is chicken and that will be put in a brine this evening for its long rest overnight.

Well the eggs are done and I am just waiting for them to cool down a bit more. It is still raining outside – this is the second day of great rain that saves me from having to water my yard and mini garden.

Happy Easter to you all, I hope your homes are blessed during this holiday weekend.

    • Thanks Kris, I actually picked out each egg that was lighter before I boiled them. It worked they are not as dark as they normally would be. Now to grate up some of my stashed horseradish root and serve them for breakfast this morning…Joe is a happy boy!!! Nancy

  1. Happy Easter to you and Joe. Rick and I made it back to Vancouver, sadly. Seems like we missed the rain there. Hopefully we will back again next year.
