I want to start by saying it doesn’t feel like Easter. I am used to an incredibly busy weekend trying to find brunch reservations for people who forgot it was Easter. This year it is me with my leg brace sitting on a heating pad, trying to figure out if I am actually going to put real clothes on today (outlook not so good on that one). I usually have things stashed for Easter Baskets this year nothing, my kids got candy (jelly beans, chocolate Easter Bunny and Fudge eggs from my hometown). I feel bad because I usually do really cool baskets for them, they understand it is still disappointing.
I used gel food coloring with a toothpick (you don’t need much, a swirl around the container – if you want it darker use a new toothpick), vinegar (about a TBSP) and hot water (enough to cover the egg) these are the brightest eggs ever!
It was fun but it still didn’t feel like Easter. Usually we have people come over, I go to work, I get home there is lots of food and drink to be had. This year it is very laid back, food will be had, drinks too, it will just be us, a very whiny dog and one who desperately needs a bath.
