It's Easter Eve
The day of the "egg"
The first egg of the day
Scrambled with bacon and roasted asparagus
In the breakfast room with a centerpiece of fruit
that will soon be turned into ambrosia!
Hot cross buns
And a wee Waterford sugar and creamer
bought just yesterday at a shop in our little town
A steal of a deal
And who says that the sugar has to have sugar in it!
I find small open sugar bowls are handy for butters or breakfast jams!
And the second eggs?
Yes, more cookies
Another batch of my cutout cookies
Cut with the egg shaped cookie cutter
Frosted with white Royal Icing
And a yellow Wilton candy melt in the end
to resemble a yolk
Some, however, are shown "unbroken"!
My best stab at a wild egg!
And the last egg
A Good Friday tradition
but I was too busy yesterday
And so it was relegated to today
The coloring of the eggs
In coffee cups (because that is what my Mom used)
With food coloring (because that is what my Mom used)
And once finished
The French wire egg stand holds the eggs
It's used only for this short time every year!
And then it's stored away!
Alas, none of these eggs will find their way outside.
We'll have them in egg salad sandwiches and deviled and Husband Jim will just peel and eat some
(but I never will)
And from Minnesota
Seems grand girl Lucy is keeping the tradition
of dying eggs on Easter Eve!
(I wonder if any of hers will find their way outside?)
And since it is Easter Eve -- I'm joining The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sundays
