Yesterday was a much better day for my poor little sickie. I still kept him home from school, but his energy was returning, as was his appetite. So I decided it was a good day to dye the eggs.
I've been reading a lot about natural dyes like cabbage and such - but I'm not that hard core yet. So I used food coloring. What I didn't do was read the directions. So, at first, the eggs were coming out very, very light. Which can be okay - but not what I wanted. So after cursing the cruddy quality of the food coloring (he, he), I then looked at the back of the box. OOOOOH, you're supposed to add vinegar. OOOOOH, boiling water. Yes, yes.
