Gilded in Gold Easter Eggs

Dying Easter eggs has always been an important family tradition in the Meyer house and as the children who used to guard their mugs of eggs soaking until they couldn’t get any more color got older, the tradition has evolved with each of us celebrating the holiday with our own new traditions.  This year I decided to try a new take on the annual craft and was so excited to come across this super DIY tutorial for foiling eggs.  The process is actually pretty simple – especially if you’ve worked with gold gilding sheets in the past.  I found the eggs took the size (the glue for foil sheets) much better at room temperature.  Pics of my project after the jump.  Happy Easter!

Egg Warmers

It’s not as if I don’t already have enough to do in getting ready for Easter this weekend, but now I’ve added whipping up some of these.  I couldn’t help but link to this super cute Easter craft since I’m going to rush out to the craft store tonight to get some felt so I can put them over everyone’s eggs on Sunday morning.  Thought you’d enjoy 🙂

Arugula from My Garden

Last night I picked a bunch of arugula from my garden to make a simple as easy starter salad for dinner. You have to try this salad as it may sound a little strange, but it is really delicious and so simple.

Simple Arugula Salad
enough lettuce for two starter salads
small piece of Parmesan cheese, grated
2 eggs
2 tsp olive oil
2 lemon wedges
fresh ground sea salt and pepper

Start by washing the lettuce in ice cold water. Place in salad spinner and dry.

In a large bowl toss lettuce with olive oil. Separate onto to plates. Place one lemon wedge on each plate.

In a medium-sized saucepan, boil about 1-2 quarts of water. When the water is at a rolling boil, gently crack and slide each egg into the water. Poach for about 3 minutes – you don’t want to overcook the yolk as it makes the best part of the “dressing” for the salad.

Remove from water and place on salad. Quickly sprinkle salad with cheese, salt and pepper.

Enjoy!
