DIY COLOURFUL EASTER EGGS

COLOURFUL EASTER EGGS
I've never enjoyed Easter as much as I enjoyed yesterday. Do you know why?It's because it was our Little Boy's first Easter. did everything I could to make it perfect for him. I know, I know,a baby need not understand all of that but as a mother I think he knows and understands what we do with love, for him.Anyhow, it was a day of special's for him...starting from breakfast!
We had Appam and Chicken Stew for breakfast and it was the first time that he had a share of the real chicken.He is a big time foodie,so he did get his share of chicken in the form of soup a while ago. But this was new for him and he seemed to have really enjoyed it.And I enjoyed my breakfast enjoying the way he was relishing his little meal.

EASTER MEAL
We had a get together on Easter Eve in our house for our friends. I started planning it as a party where I would cook everything but our friend's wanted to bring something over, so I gave the appetizers to them and cooked the rest of the meal by myself.I planned for almost a week as to what the menu should be,see,it's my Little Man's first Easter! There was Chicken & Bacon Bruschetta,Spiced Drumsticks,Baked Orange Ham,Green Beans in Chicken Broth,Scalloped Potatoes,American Biscuits -Gravy & a delicious Carrot-Pineapple Cake for dessert.The whole meal can be summed up in just one word - Delicious!

COLOURFUL EASTER EGGS
I made these Easter eggs for him,just for him to experience the fun of holding and feeling it.He absolutely loved the plastic eggs that I used as moulds for moulding these Easter eggs.I also hid some M&M's inside the eggs which would also act as a rattle if he shook it.I am so glad I found this recipe!

DIY COLOURFUL EASTER EGGS
COLOURFUL EASTER EGGS Makes 8 large eggs

Ingredients:
3 tablespoon unsalted butter
16oz bag mini marshmallows
6 cups rice krispies

Method: In a large non stick pan, melt butter over medium heat. Add the marshamallows and still till they are completely melted. Add the rice krispies and switch off the heat. Stir well to mix.
Spray some oil inside the plastic eggs and oil your hands really well. Now,stuff each halves with the rice krispie mixture.Make a small well in the centre of each halves and place 2 candies in it and squish close the 2 halves together.Open the moulds and release the fresh eggs. Roll them in sprinkles if you like.
I wanted to post this before Easter so that if any of you were planning for it , you would have been able to make these even at the last minute. But I was so lost in the kitchen scrubbing potatoes and baking that delicious ham. Jobin did remind me once in a while about it but it had to happen post Easter :-)

Oh yes! For all those who are reading this section of my post just to know what Ian Vaava has been upto...well, he is now very fond of wires,phone chargers to laptop chargers to our lamps. He has started to crawl and it's quite funny how he crawls into the kitchen to find me when he needs me. That makes me so happy no matter what state I am in, in the kitchen ;-)
