Fancy Eggs x 2

Today we colored eggs in a way that was fun, colorful & easy - that's a winning combination! It was the easiest, most low-stress way we've ever done them. We got the idea from Family Fun magazine.

Dip your hard-boiled eggs in white vinegar, or sprinkle it on. Put a few eggs in a colander at a time & put it in the sink. Drip one color of food coloring on them. Use the colander to swirl them around & let sit for 30 seconds. do the same with a second color. Add a third if you'd like. Then rinse lightly with a little water.
And now for the eating...
My friend, D, is the best cook. Despite my need in life not to burden others, I NEVER turn down food at her house. I even eat foods that I don't usually like when I'm at her house. When she makes it, I love it! Doesn't matter what it is. I don't even turn her down when she offers to send food home with me!

Recently I was at her house during lunch time. (Oh, is it lunch time already?) She offered what she called a "really simple egg salad sandwich." This didn't sound like D & I was curious. Of course, you know I accepted her gracious offer to feed me (again). What she served was the best egg salad sandwich I've ever eaten -- and the fanciest! She said she got it from Real Simple (I think), but I have a feeling she added her own special something. Since we'll all have plenty of hard-boiled eggs around, I thought you might enjoy D's fancy sands, too. (I only wish I had a picture because not only are they delicious -- they are quite pretty, too.)

Slice & toast a large loaf of bread.
Spread on parsley mayonnaise (1 T mayo, 1 T fresh chopped parsley, 1 t mustard).
Cover with sliced hard-boiled eggs.
Sprinkle with salt & pepper.
Add watercress or arugula.
Enjoy open-faced!!
