Happy Easter

After service tomorrow we’re going to a relative’s home and bringing a mini kitchen of cooked food.

I’m busy today boiling and dying several dozen eggs. A dozen hard boiled will remain intact and colored with food coloring. With the rest of the eggs I’m making deviled eggs. Hard to believe but I’ve never made deviled eggs!! I was inspired to try when I saw it online. I opted to use beet juice to dye them – works beautifully!! With some of the eggs I boiled and cracked but, did not peel. I soaked them in the juice for a half hour then peeled them. It resulted in a neat marbled look.

These eggs have the shell removed and are soaking in beet juice (straight from cans of beets).

Egg salad: I mixed in spicy mustard, salt, pepper, mayo then garnished with dried dill and paprika.

I’m making potato salad, a 14 lb ham garnished with pineapple chunks (a tradition in our home). Love getting this free deal from ShopRite with their annual “spend this and get a FREE Ham, etc”. Easter Ham 4.2014

Thank you Jesus!!! Thank you for dying for all of us!!!  Happy & Blessed Easter dear friends!!

EASTER

SNOWpocalypse!

Haven’t seen such a good snowstorm in years, like the Nor’Easter we had today.  I’m enjoying every moment of Winter!

Not sure why, but  our Post Office was closed – so much for conducting business! City buses appear to be running OK . And DPW  has plowed since the early morning hours.

Thankfully, our local Starbucks was open!

What’s on my hook this week are two more Lapsghans (from our Valentine’s Day project).

Loving using size K – I can whip things up a lot faster with this large crochet hook.

Food for thought…

On the eve of a New Year. I’m looking forward to 2014 & hoping it brings you the best of health & prosperity!!

Believe something good is about to happenI will continue to embrace  opportunities to do  Random Acts of Kindness – no act too small. There are many ways to be a blessing to others and to spread kindness that doesn’t cost very much.  Sometimes those opportunities come in fleeting moments that can pass quickly.

Little things for others

Perfect moment
