Yippee!!!!! Yesterday, my kids and I dyed Easter Eggs along with another boy from church. I do it every year in conjunction with stuffing the eggs for our church egg hunt. Planning it this way makes it fun for the kids and for me and I know that I won't procrastinate dying eggs and miss it.
My kids love hard boiled eggs. But, in recent years, they have been a thorn in my side. Every time I tried to peel one, the peel would stick. I could never get a cleanly peeled egg. Until today!! My mom is always looking for fun tips on how to cook eggs. She's the one who told me how to cook them:
Place eggs in cold water in pan. Bring to a boil. Place lid on pan. Turn off heat and let sit for 15 minutes. Then, drain and eat.
Less energy used to cook and this method works well--for the cooking.
But, my mom found a new tip for the cracking this week and this is it:
Gently crack your egg(s) all over. Then, place them in a bowl of water for a few minutes. Don't try and leave them there for just 30 seconds. They'll still stick. But, 2-3 minutes will do the trick. Pull out the eggs one by one and peel!
I was so amazed and pleased that this worked. Deviled eggs with smooth surfaces! Yippee!!!
It's the little things that can make one smile!
