I’ve liked Rachael Ray ever since her first quirky 30 Minute Meals show on the Food Network.
I like her magazine, Every Day with Rachael Ray. Good recipes. Good tips. (Normally) good ideas.
The April issue that we just got has some ultra-creative egg decorating ideas.
They give techniques for making eggs REALLY hard to hunt. They show how to make them look like grass or rocks, or blend in with table decorations or a brick sidewalk.
But then . . . the cutest idea of all was one that made the egg look a pair of baby shoes, hidden in plain sight with all of the family’s other shoes.
Hmmm. Hidden in plain sight doesn’t really work for me. You know, Slob Vision and all . . .
Another showed how to make an egg look like part of a shirt, so you could hide it IN A DRAWER!
In a drawer, people.
Can I just say that while eggs hidden outside can feature all sorts of creativity . . . no slob should, under any circumstances . . . place a boiled egg (cute or not) inside a drawer.
And walk away.
And assume someone will find it.
Before it starts to smell.
I suppose the eggs could be blown out (a concept that totally grosses me out), but then we have the issue of eggshells in my underwear.
I just can’t see how it could possibly end well in our home.
Please note: If you’d like to suggest I make a spreadsheet detailing the number of eggs hidden vs found . . . Welcome!
You must be new here.
