One of our Team Beekman members brought these eggs in to help decorate the Mercantile for Spring. We thought they were so pretty that we asked her to show all the Neighbors how she did it. Even if you’re not super-artistic, they’re really easy…and hard to mess up.

Take your sharpie and draw line around the outside of the shape, defing the flower. Your lines don’t need to be fully inside, outside or along the edge of the color.

To draw the center of the flower you can make dots for pollen. The shape in the center can be wild and freeform.

My mother grew up in the Philippines and she made egg drop soup often. It was one of those easy, but nourishing non-meat meals. I think your mistake was the cheese-egg mixture. Just use the scrambled eggs drizzled into very hot soup and stirred constantly. You can add the cheese when serving (although, as an Asian, my mother never used cheese). Since the eggs expand while cooking, a little goes a long way. When I make it now, I saute the spinach (or kale), add grated carrots, green onions, and broth, bring it to a boil, simmer for 15 minutes. If I want it to be a bit heartier, I thrown in a handful of white rice and when it”s soft, add the eggs. I”m impatient with bread kneading as well (and I don”t have a Kitchen Aide). The trick is to get someone to talk to you so you forget how boring it is (this seems like a good job for Corrie). Or set a timer, so you have a goal (because kneading seems like it will take forever when you”re doing it.) There”s the overnight soak method which doesn”t take any kneading but does require thinking and planning ahead.
