TIP OF THE DAY
Since Easter is here we are talking about eggs today! Brown eggs have thicker shells than white ones and this makes them better for boiling because they don’t crack as easily. Use hard cooked eggs within 1 week whether peeled or in the shell. If you find an egg with a double yoke it is perfectly safe to eat. (If you find a double yoke this is said to be good luck.) An egg with a blood spot on the yoke is safe, too. (It is just a mistake on the part of the chicken. lol) To test an egg for freshness, put the egg in a bowl of water and if it sinks and lays on its side, it is fresh. If the egg floats to the top it is not a good egg! White chickens lay white eggs. Brown chickens lay brown eggs. Want more information about eggs? Check out the USDA website with information on eggs from Farm to Table.
Egg rolling on the lawn of the White House dates as far back as 1878 under President Rutherford B. Hayes and is held on the Monday after Easter. This year marks the 136th annual White House Easter Egg Roll on the South lawn. Want to know more about this event? Check out the Annual White House Easter Egg Roll.
I think of the garden after the rain;
And hope to my heart comes
At morn the cherry-blooms will be white,
And the Easter bells be
ringing! ~Edna Dean Proctor, “Easter Bells”
