Pimping my “Passover” Eggs, Easter Style!

Pimping my “Passover” Eggs, Easter Style!

It’s Spring!  The flowers are blooming, birds are chirping (at 6:30 in the morning) and the rabbits have started nibbling on my early lettuce.  And like so many Springs in the past, I am compelled to follow the Passover traditions of not eating anything with leavening while consuming massive quantities of hard boiled eggs.  I get the whole eating of the unleavened starches part (See Exodus in the Old Testament for proof) but, after watching “The 10 Commandments” with Charlton Heston last night, am still a bit confused on the whole “Thou shall consume hard boiled eggs until you can eat no more!” commandment.

Nevertheless, be it a Commandment or a tradition, hard boiled eggs have been made and stacked in my refrigerator for my family to consume through out the week.  (Side note: I really don’t like hard boiled eggs.  They remind me of that movie “Airplane!” when all of the people got sick from eating the fish and all of the sudden eggs came out of their mouths? Weird right?)

So K, who also hates hard boiled eggs, decided we need an infusion of color to encourage us embrace our egg eating tradition.  K’s suggestion was to follow the lead of our Christian brethren and “Color those eggs!”  She decided to call in an egg decorating expert, her best friend (and neighbor E) who happened to be playing at our house when we decided to pull out the Easter Egg dyes and get “cracking!”
