Happy belated Easter world!
While I am not religious (Easter really doesn’t mean anything to me), I decided to make Easter eggs for the hell of it (which shouldn’t surprise anyone knowing me).
Interesting side note – I asked several of my Jewish friends if they’d ever made easter eggs as kids and they all responded… No as they are Jewish… which makes sense… BUT I would like to believe all kids of all denominations should be allowed to dye hard boiled eggs, hide them in the yard and search for them. Plus, there’s all that weird candy — chocolate shaped as bunnies etc- for Easter that everyone should enjoy! I clearly was raised in a very liberal household where we incorporated a lot of traditions.
Also – did you know there are specially made easter eggs for the visually impaired? They beep and omit noise. The things you learn by wikipediaing Easter eggs.
But anyway… I made fun glitter and marbled easter eggs this past weekend.
I should also note I had a fabulous brunch at Tartine in the West Village with my friend Elijah, who was visiting this weekend from Boston. We sat outside and had a wonderful meal. I nursed my hangover and we caught up, having not seen each other in a few months!
These were probably some of the best Eggs Benedict I’ve ever had.
Back to Easter Eggs! I purchased one of these cheesy kits from CVS in preparation. (It was actually a very intense process to dye easter eggs – a lot of directions! And as you will note, the marbling technique didn’t really work…). I also bought a glitter kit, which was even more involved (hence why I only glittered two eggs)!
Rainbow Easter Eggs!
