Eggcellent Stuff: Easter 2011Posted: April 25, 2011
Hope everyone had a great Easter. I made it home for the first time in 11 years. That’s a long time without my family’s traditional eggs and kielbasa brunch, followed by a nice baked ham dinner. Let’s grab a gin & tonic and look at some of the egg-related things that made me happy this past weekend.
Eggcellent Easter activity: Coloring eggs
Who doesn’t love PAAS? But here’s my question: what else does PAAS make? And how come we don’t color anything at Christmastime? They should figure that out. My nephew and I colored a dozen hardboiled eggs on Saturday afternoon — but honestly, I think I had more fun than he did. Although he made the really awesome navy blue egg that’s at the top of this post.
Eggcellent Side Dish: My Mom’s potato salad
Yes, we have potato salad along with our baked ham. (You’ll also notice the roasted asparagus and broccoli.) There’s just something about my mom’s potato salad that makes me so happy. It could be the hardboiled eggs. Or maybe it’s the grated onion. Or the crazy amount of mayonnaise. Whatever it is, this is the salad I dream about all summer long. I’ve made it myself a few times, but it’s never (ever) as good.
Eggcellent Easter candy: Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs
Forget jelly beans. This is the only Easter candy that really matters. Regular peanut butter cups are okay, but in egg form they just taste so much more amazing. I think it’s the chocolate to peanut butter ratio. I’d want Reese’s to sell these all year long, but then they wouldn’t be so darn special.
What fun Easter and/or egg-related things did you do this weekend?
