Hard boiled eggs, dyed funky colors. Make it like tea soaked eggs, only with colored water, not tea. IE: crack the shell all over after it cools off from boiling, then let sit 24 hours in colored water (I used mugs).
Decorate the 2nd batch of iced cookies with more icing. Much better, but what isn’t good with gobs of icing?
Hey, time to slice the eggs.
The yolks needed a lot more mayo than I would have thought. Kind of dried out soaking overnight or something. No mustard this time – the bright orange color is from paprika.
Friday I got to try out Beirut in Troy (old Al Baraki, new ownership) with friends. I haven’t gone out to eat in a long time – this was a nice, cheap treat. Owners are super-friendly, and kept the food hot and replenished quickly.
The fish stew was awesome (top left) – tangy, almost cheesey. And the rice tasted like a cross with orzo. Yum. Went really well with the fish.
Went downstate for the weekend. Made copious cheesecake: this one was coconut and key lime. Also made a vanilla bean one. And shortbread for the crust.
