... when life gives you red eggs?
Why, make pink egg salad for lunch, of course!
At the end of the Pascha liturgies on Holy Saturday/early Pascha morning and at the Agape Vespers service late Pascha morning, it is traditional for the priest to give worshippers a red egg when they come to venerate the cross after liturgy. Well, by the time Agape Vespers came along, we were very low on red eggs. Though a member brought a few up at the last minute, I was toward the end of the line to receive a blessing and we had apparently run out. So I got a pink plastic egg filled with Dove chocolate eggs - plus a shrug and a smile!
Thankfully, we had dyed plenty of red eggs for our basket, so that the kids would have some to play the "egg game" with, and so we had a bunch left over anyway.
I'm thinking that we will have enough left to make a few pink deviled eggs, too!
