Kool Easter Fun



You may have seen this idea
on another post or THAT
other site that some are obsessed
with. :)  If so, please excuse the repeat.
I personally think this is THE best
way to dye eggs for Easter.

Ready, Set, Go!

Boil your eggs and then let them
cool.
Gather some small containers and
your kool-aid packets.
Mix each packet with 2/3 C of water
and stir.
CAUTION: Mix the colors over the
sink or on a covered surface so you
don't dye something you don't plan to.
The eggs don't have to stay in the "dye"
long because they will turn bright fast.
Remove from "dye" and place back in
the egg carton to dry.
Place eggs in a lidded container in the
fridge when finished.

Color Options:

Lemonade is too light.
Grape is too dark.

If you want a PINK egg, use
Pink Lemonade and a little
bit of Cherry.
If you want a Yellow egg, use
Lemonade and 1/4-1/2 pkg of
Orange.
If you want a Purple egg,
use Grape and a little bit of
Berry Blue.





Voila'

Have fun!

Something for Easter


Photo: Google


Are you looking for something simple
to serve at your Easter brunch, lunch
or dinner?
I saw this in a cookbook that I bought
recently.

Spinach Quiches

1 (14.1-oz.) package of    
refrigerated piecrusts
2 T butter
1 small onion, chopped
2 green onions, chopped
1/4 c chopped fresh parsley
1 (10-oz.) package frozen
chopped spinach, thawed
and well drained
1 T Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
3 large eggs
1/4 c milk
1 c (4 oz.) shredded swiss cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Roll
each piecrust into a 12-inch square;
cut each square into 24 pieces. Shape
into balls, and press into a lightly
greased miniature muffin tin.

Melt butter in a large skillet over
medium heat. Add onions and
parsley; saute until onions are
tender. Add spinach; cook 2
minutes. Stir in Worcestershire
sauce, salt and pepper. Remove
from heat.

Whisk together eggs and milk
until blended; stir in cheese.
Add egg mixture to spinach
mixture; spoon into prepared
pans.

Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes.
Remove immediately from
pans and cool on wire racks.

Enjoy!

Some Friday Fun



I saw this really cool idea
in a magazine a couple of
months ago.

If and when we can put our
boots away,this is a helpful
storage idea.
Do you boots fall over when
you are not wearing them?
If so help is here!

Take a swim noodle, measure
the height of your boots and
cut the noodle to that height.
Insert and viola--boots are
standing upright and you are 
ready for the next time you
need them!
For kids boots, you can do
the same thing.

This would also work for rain
boots and your dress boots.

You can also do this for your
shoes. Measure the noodle to
fit in your shoes.
Cut the noodle to the shoe
length, then cut it half and 
insert in your shoe with the
rounded side facing up.

Pretty cool huh?

P.S. We will still need our
boots this weekend due to
ANOTHER snowstorm coming in
tomorrow afternoon! WHAT
SEASON ARE WE IN?

It's Here!---Sorta?




Happy Spring to EVERYONE!
The bunnies have arrived!





It's a sure sign that Spring AND
Easter are on it's way to the
Country Club Plaza here in Kansas
City, Missouri.




These bunny friends pay a special
visit each year..




All are dressed in their Easter finery.





Each one also has a name--Sue's
is on her basket. The gentlemen's
names are usually on their
platforms.






The bunnies are placed in
different spots on the Plaza each
year. They have been a Plaza
tradition for nearly eight decades!
We paid them a visit in 2010.
If you are ever here at Easter time
make sure you go to the Plaza
and visit the bunnies!
I hope the bunnies brought their
winter wear with them because we
are forcasted for SNOW from
Thursday to Sunday.


HAPPY SPRING!
I hope your Spring weather is
a little bit better than ours.

A Wee Bit O' Fun

 
To celebrate St. Patrick's Day, 110
million people will celebrate the day
by wearing green, making an Irish
inspired meal or going out to dinner.

Green is associated with St. Patrick's
Day because it is the color of Spring,
of  Ireland and of the shamrock.

In Ireland, St. Patrick's Day is a
religious holiday.

The 1st St. Patrick's parade
was in Boston in 1737.

Erin go Brah-"Ireland Forever"

Chicago dyes their river green
each year.



St. Patrick's Day is an enchanted time,
a day to begin transforming winter's
dreams into summer's magic.
~ Adrienne Cook

For each petal on the shamrock
this wish brings your way-
Good health, good luck and
happiness.
For today and everyday.

Something Tasty for You



Welcome to Sunday Savor!
I have a yummy recipe for
you today, so pull up a chair
and relax.




Dinner last night.





This recipe comes from The
Pioneer Woman-Ree
Drummond. She has a blog
and has a show on the Food
Network.

Hot Crash Potatoes

12 small yellow potatoes
Kosher salt
3 T olive oil
Fresh ground pepper

In a medium pan on medium
heat, boil potaotes in lightly
salted water until fork tender,
about 12 minutes.
*I patted my potatoes dry after
removing them from the pan.

Preheat oven 470 degrees.

Place potatoes on a baking sheet,
using the potato masher, gently
press down on each potato to
slightly mash.  The tops should
be really textured.
Drizzle the tops with olive oil.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper. 
Bake until golden brown and
crisp about 15 minutes.

Variations:
Sprinle with cheese.
Dab of butter on each.

We really enjoyed these. They are
quite filling too. These were served
with Patty Melts.

LION or LAMB



Proverb:

...if March comes in like a lion, it will
go out like a lamb.
Lends to the ferocity or gentleness
of the weather.

This phrase can be traced backed to
the U.S. settlers, who relied on weather
observation to forecast the weather.
Usually the month begins--cold,windy
and wet--lion's roar. Usually (often) 
ends  warm, quiet and spring
like--like a lamb.

Some have traced the phrase back to
ancient times and those who watched
the stars.
March begins as the Constellation
Leo is crossing toward the meridan.
Leo the Lion. As Leo marches away,
the Constellation Aries begins to rise
toward the end of the month. Aries
is the Ram. What many lambs become.

Our month came in like a lion with a
ton of snow on the ground and a
second snowstorm behind us.

How did March arrive in your neck of
the woods?

What did ya think of all that trivia??

Days of the Week


Today's Sunday Savor has a twist to it.
No recipe BUT something equally
fun. I picked up this Weekly Planner
 at Staples and I wanted to show you
what I have done with this organizing
wonder! It is from Martha Stewart's
line of organizing gadgets.

 

We sing a song in Kindergarten about
the days of the week to the Adam's
Family tune. So sing along with me!

There's Sunday and there's Monday,
there's Tuesday and there's Wednesday,
there's Thursday and there's Friday and
then there's Saturday. Days of the week
snap, snap. Days of the week, snap snap.
Days of the week, days, of the week, days
of the week snap, snap.

Instead of using the dry erase method, I use
my sticky notes for each day on my planner.
This way if there is a change in plans I can
switch days without having to erase and
re-write the menu for that day.
This has been an organizing wonder as I said.
I don't write each and every little thing we are eating each evening but I do put the main course and maybe one other thing on the note.
The only issue I have with the planner is,
I think it may be stuck to my refrigerator FOREVER!  I've tried a couple of time to
move it and NOPE not happening.
Oh well.
How do you do your menu planning??
