Yesterday, Mr. Batty and I decided to color eggs. I hadn't colored eggs since I was 7 years old, or rather, my mother always did the coloring and I watched. This year, I decided to take a more active role.
This is Mr. Batty creating a tri-colored egg. It takes a while for the color to take, so he had to hold the egg partway submerged.
But in the end, it was worth it. The yellow/orange-shaded egg on top is the one he made, and I stuck a lamb sticker on one of the green ones. Not that this will come as a big surprise to anyone familiar with the knitter's fascination with all things sheepy.
Then, I decided to make a traditional Serbian Easter Cookie. You start out dropping way more batter onto a cookie sheet than the recipe asks for, and then, all the individual cookies are supposed to run together like this.
OK, I made up the Serbian Easter Cookie. I was hungry when I decided to make chocolate chip cookies, made the cookies too big (the yield is 16 instead of 40!), and they all ran together. Still yummy, just not as aesthetically pleasing.
What turned out aesthetically pleasing was the deep dish pizza. I made 2, completely from scratch. Crust from scratch, sauce from scratch, and then I made a cheese pizza for myself and a pepperoni pizza for the husband. They came out looking very nice, if I may say so myself.
Today, we somehow managed to get up too late for church (the combination of reading in bed and cuddling kittens probably had something to do with it...). It has been a comfy, cozy day so far, with knitting, cuddling, eating leftover pizza. I'm happy, and I hope you are too!
