I'm not too old to color eggs, but my teenager grandsons are. They will grow back into being young enough to color eggs. We just have to wait until they become real people again.
Raccoons got my chickens. I had some that lay brown eggs and some that lay the green/blue eggs. I want to get some more chickens. This time I want to get Buff Orpingtons, Aracuna, Rhode Island Reds, and Maran. Then I will have all colors of eggs. I like that idea. I also like the fresh eggs that stand up in the pan when you break them. Nice orange/yellow yolks are a big plus.

Judy, I haven't heard of spinach mixed with mint either. I wonder if there is a nutritional benefit to that mixture. No deviled eggs here. None of us here are too old to color eggs - we just didn't get to it. The eggs I have on hand are brown so they would be sort of muted color I think.
Saturday when we went shopping, I was showing my caregiver some of the interesting places where I shop in Seattle/Bellevue. We stopped first at World Market where I can get some of the ethnic foods I dearly love. While there I spotted some lovely square lunch plates. I chose the soft gray color which was fifty percent off. It was just perfect for my Easter dinner. I didn't get too much to eat because the plate was small, but I had a bit of everything.
On the way home, I had my caregiver duck in to Tacoma Boys Market to pick up spinach I had forgotten, for my Easter Salad. She picked up spinach that had mint mixed in. I've never seen this before, and I didn't realize the mint was there. I made up the salad with cherry tomatoes, avocado, fresh mushrooms, the spinach mix and some glazed walnut pieces. The salad was terrific, and was the perfect accompaniment for the lamb roast. That is the first time I have used lamb for anything, but the stew my mother made. I had Kabocha squash baked, Asparagus cooked for 3 minutes in the microwave, and chunky mashed potatoes, (my daughter did the potatoes, taught me something new). We had a special cake filled with Strawberry Rhubarb sauce and fresh strawberries and topped with Seven Minute Frosting. The meal was delicious and great for the holiday. In the future I will use that Spinach/Mint mix for many salads.
I hope you all had a nice Easter. How many people had deviled eggs? We didn't because my grandsons are now to old to color eggs. No more Easter Egg Hunts with a silly bunny that keeps hiding eggs where we already found them, (makes the hunt last longer).

The clouds have moved in here a little. Still a nice day. DH said the temp was in the mid 70 s although the temp on the computer said 63 down town.
I think I feel like venturing to the soup and salad place for supper. I do need to get to a store and get an Anniversary card for DS and DIL. Now I don't remember which on it is. Their DD will be 31 this year so it must be their 33rd. The three of them are going to NYC and Wash. DC in May. I have a video on each place I'd like to also get in the mail to them. It will acquaint them with the area a little. GD is planning the trip. If she weren't going I know they wouldn't be.
DH thought too late this morning that he should have fixed breakfast for the two kids here. I'm sure they probably enjoyed sleeping in. GS is at a campland on the bay with his mother this week end. The weather sure has been good for camping down there.

HAPPY RESURRECTION DAY, EVERYONE! PRAISE JESUS for what HE did for us!
Patty, we are going over friend's today. My father-in-law and his lady friend are also coming with us. Our friends are like family. I am bringing salad, a bowl of fresh fruit and a plate for me to eat. When I was losing weight really good, I was eating vegetarian, mostly vegan but not 100%. This past week I had been eating meat and also making not wise food choices and had a horrible weight gain. I did not record it yet on SPARK but I will. So it is back back to eating vegetarian. My body does not do well with meat. So that is why I am bringing a vegetarian dish for me to eat and also enough to share if anyone else wants it.
Well, everyone, please have A Very Blessed And Joyful Easter Sunday!
Happy Resurrection Day ladies, What are your plans for the day? We are going to town later. Not sure what for, just something to do I guess, going out to eat. We are not have a family get together today.
I started another baby sweater...can you believe it? Of course you can. You all know me by now. I have my knitting mojo back, so look out. Lots to see on my blog, soon. Not yet though...
Prasie God for sending Jesus to earth as a man, who suffered and died for our sins, then rose again on the third day, so that we could have a way to heaven, if we accept him as our personal Lord and Savior. His scarifice for us...praise God Patty
