Easter Eggs, Ham, and Lamb!

Easter is right around the corner!

Have you bought enough eggs for decorating?  Do you still like making egg salad even though you don't have kiddos around this year?  Is your family an Easter Ham or Easter Lamb type?  No matter what, we've got you covered!

Check out our home delivery page!  Everything meat and egg wise is available for delivery this coming week in time for Easter Sunday! (Monday the 14th and Thursday the 17th)

(There are even a few veggies available! Act fast for veggies, they're first ordered first served!)

Don't want to buy a whole $25 worth of eggs? Check with your neighbor, perhaps they need a ham or a lamb leg roast or maybe they also need some eggs.

Don't know what to do with all those eggs once you've boiled and decorated them?  Check out the latest recipes and helpful tips we've posted: How to Boil an Egg and Margaret's Amazing Egg Salad.  They're really easy, I promise!

Do our eggs dye?  Well, that's a good question.  I've never heard of great results with brown eggs and the traditional food color and vinegar dyes.  There are however two other ideas that you may find very fun and quite gorgeous!

Stickers are always special but sometimes just don't have enough sticky.

Coloring with crayons works pretty well too.  Don't worry, you'll make egg salad with the broken ones from overly heavy hands, right? (although you've got to work pretty hard to break our egg shells!

The best idea I think I've found for working with non-white eggs I've found yet will go especially well with all those pesky crayon pieces you've been stepping on... again.  Take a look at Mama Smile's blog post about using them to decorate her eggs and at Mud Hut Mama's post about using the technique on brown eggs.  Wonderful and inspirational photos on both posts!

Tip: for doing the crayon shavings with this method, DO NOT pre-boil your eggs.  They need to be hot for it to work! (also, you can set kiddos to work outside with a hammer or big wooden spoon and a bag full of crayon pieces to smash while they're boiling...)

  1. Thanks for linking over to my crayon shavings post! This is a technique that works beautifully on brown eggs!
