First a reminder: Club dues are due May 1 to our county treasurer, and now is the time to register for the Home and Family Conference which is held in June.
Also, a reminder to sign up to work at the fair. I want to thank those who already signed up. Just give me a call and we will find a time for you to work.
Hasn’t it been a beautiful Easter weekend, the weather was wonderful. Makes you feel like it is time to garden and start to plant flowers.
This poem was in our church bulletin this weekend. I know Easter is over, but I thought it had a lot of meaning. I’m sure you may have jelly beans left.
Jelly Bean prayer
Red is for the blood He gave,
Green is for the grass He made
Yellow is for the sun so bright
Orange is for the edge of night
Black is for the sins we made
Purple is for His hour of sorrow
Pink is for our new tomorrow
An egg full of jellybeans, colorful and sweet
Is a prayer, a promise, a loved one’s treat!!!
I am sure you have some hard boiled eggs left from Easter, so instead of deviled eggs maybe you could try:
2 T. butter
2 T. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
dash of pepper
1 c. milk
2 tsp. minced onion
1 T. chopped pimento
1/3 c. thinly diced celery
1/3 c. peas, cooked
3 hard cooked eggs, quartered
Melt butter; blend in flour, salt and pepper. Slowly add milk and bring to a slow boil. Add onion, pimento, celery and peas just before serving.
Fold in eggs. Serve over biscuit halves or toast.
Another way to use leftover hard-cooked eggs, Just add to tuna salad, ham salad along with that leftover ham.
