Time for Easter eggs! Don’t forget to make some colored eggs for this weekend. I love eggs. If the egg timer goes off, I always hear it and I come racing to the kitchen. Eggs are so tasty. Of course, you will need eggs for this project, and I love to use my chicken Henrietta. She has been cooking our eggs since before I was born.
Henrietta comes apart so I can put up to seven eggs in her for cooking. When she is done with the first batch, she Call out a special signal to me so I know I need to come and grab the eggs. My sisters are going to be coloring the eggs, but they are not good at using Henrietta. It is best if I cook the eggs for them to dye.
This chicken is pretty quick and before you know it, the eggs are done and I cool them in cold water. Mom picked up a coloring kit for my sisters to use. I think we are ready to call in the coloring team.
Since Madison is short, she can’t work if things are on the kitchen counter or island. I set her up with Olivia at the kitchen table with a waterproof table cloth. You know there will be colored water all over the place. I like to keep the table safe/sister proofed. We have five colors – yellow, purple, orange, blue, and green.
Olivia is a sports dog, but is not much good in the kitchen. Madison is in charge of putting the eggs into the color holders. I am afraid Olivia might just grab and eat an egg. She is that kind of a girl! The water has some vinegar in it with the color. Olivia tried to drink it but that didn’t go over well with her taste buds.
Waiting is boring but the eggs have to sit in the dye for a while, otherwise the color will not be dark enough. Since we have a dozen eggs we will be doing three batches of coloring.
Finally, the first Easter eggs are ready. They are pastel and we all think they look great! Since my sisters will be traveling on Easter, they can take some eggs along on their trip. The rest of the eggs will be safe here at home
in my belly, I mean, with me. Have you colored eggs for Easter yet? Happy Easter Weekend!
