Does the Easter Bunny really lay all those eggs!

Eggs!

MADISON COUNTY — It is that time of year again when we all get in the mood to color eggs. I love this time of year as the stores put all their eggs on sale. You can crack the eggs if you like and put them in ice trays to freeze for later cooking. I have a few recipes again to share about this high protein item.

EASY EGG SALAD

Ingredients:

4 hard-cooked eggs, chopped

1/2 cup finely chopped celery

1/3 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise

1 teaspoon Dijon-style mustard

Directions:

Stir ingredients together. Makes 1 1/4 cups of salad. Great on toast bread for a sandwich

Here is some help when dealing with cooking eggs:

• If your eggs crack during cooking, pour in 1 tsp of salt. It should keep the egg whites from seeping out. A few drops of lemon juice or vinegar in the egg water will have the same effect.

• Difficult to peel: tap the warm cooked egg all over the shell with a spoon and/roll it around in cold water. Peel it under gently running water.

• Uncertain quality: test for freshness by lowering raw eggs into water. If they float, that means air pockets under the shell, and they are old.

• Those of us lowering our fat intake tend to accumulate egg yolks. They are still good food and unparalleled for making a crust.

If you've many accumulated yolks, do you have a cat or dog? An egg yolk every few days is good for your pet’s coat. Or, you can beat an egg yolk into a few tablespoons of your shampoo (just before using). Some people swear it “feeds” the hair without going through the digestive  track. Hummmm.

Before I send you on your way (this has nothing to do with eggs just life) I want to share an article Romona Culp sent me. I just know it will cause a good belly laugh.

According to a news report, a certain school was recently faced with a unique problem. A number of 12-year-old girls were beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in the bathroom. That was fine provided it was a natural or neutral skin tone, but after they put on their lipstick, they would press their lips to the mirror leaving dozens of little lip prints. Every night the maintenance man would remove them; and the next day the girls would put them back.

Finally, the principal, decided that something had to be done. She called all the girls to the bathroom and met them there with the custodian. She explained that all the lip prints were causing a major problem for the custodian, who had to clean the mirrors every night. (You can imagine the yawns from the little princesses.)

To demonstrate how difficult it had been to clean the mirrors, the principal asked the custodian to show the girls how much effort was required.

He took out a long-handled squeegee, dipped it in the toilet, and cleaned the mirror with it.

After that, no lip prints were left on the mirror.

There are teachers and there are educators.

I hope you and your family have a most enjoyable Easter.  I hope you have a chance to stop and remember why we really do celebrate Easter besides hunting Easter eggs.
