Happy Spring! Eggs, eggs, and more eggs
We've done these in the past, and the dog has eaten them before we truly got to enjoy them. This year I'm keeping them on my kitchen window, safe from doggie harm. Making these are very simple-- just crack the egg on the point and pour out the innards. Gently snip the hole until it's about the right size with a pair of scissors. Rinse the egg out well and let dry completely. Decorate with permanent markers and fill with potting soil. Sprinkle generously with grass seed (rye will work best because it comes up quickly) and cover with a small layer of more soil. Water, set in a sunny place, and let the hair grow wildly!
And now, what to do with all of those eggs... How about a Meatless Monday recipe?
This is one of my favorite recipes because I normally keep all of the ingredients on hand, and it is so easily dressed up with whatever you want to throw in.
Spinach Parmesan Pie
1 large onion, chopped
1 package frozen spinach, thawed and pressed dry
4 eggs (hmm, where ya' gonna get those?)
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
salt and pepper
8" frozen deep dish pie crust
Heat your oven to 375. Saute onion in a bit of olive oil until soft. Add spinach and mix.
In a large bowl, mix the eggs. Add spinach mixture, cheese, and salt and pepper. Dump it in the crust.
Bake for 45 minutes or until edges are brown and center is set.
