What are you doing today? If you’re like us, you’re dyeing eggs for Easter! This year I wanted to try a few new things, I’ll tell you how it went.
First I baked my eggs instead of boiling them. It’s how Alton Brown says we should do it! We lost 3 in the process but it’s ok because we were hungry so we just ate them for breakfast while we were working.
|Here they are cooling in the fridge|
Second, instead of using a dye kit, we just grabbed some koolaide packets from our local grocer. It sure smelled a lot better!
Lastly, I let Anakin go to town! He used some less conventional methods but whatever!!
And here’s the finished product:
It’s ok. You can say it. They aren’t the prettiest eggs you’ve ever seen. But you know what? They sure were a lot easier than the tablets with vinegar and for frugality, they were only about $0.50 to dye. So I’m happy. However, I did send the hubs to the store for another dozen so we can try this method. I’ll let you know how it goes later today!
