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!!
