Dying Eggs

1 Apr

Egg dying is another Easter ritual in our house — and one that gives me a slight bit of agita. It’s a perfect storm of food dye, breakable eggs, cups of water that tend to floweth over and the overwhelming stink of white vinegar.  Each year I buy the egg dying kit, sighing a bit when it hits the bottom of my grocery cart, and put on my crafty mom face to get the job done.  But an amazing thing happened this year…

IMG_6644Gigi to the rescue.  We arrived at her house for dinner and found an elaborate egg dying station already set up – cups portioned out with the foul smelling vinegar, spoons set along side, newspaper strewn across the table to protect from splashing and eggs already hard boiled to perfection.

I think this may become the new tradition… okay Gigi?
