Egg Fight

Every Easter weekend Jeff boils eggs with onion skins:

To get them a pretty brown colour:

The next day we choose our weapons:

And declare war:

Jeff won this year. But he cheated...

This is followed by egg salad sandwiches for lunch.

My recipe:

4 hard boiled eggs mashed with pastry utensil
2 tbsp mayonaise
1 green onion
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1/8 tsp garlic powder

Mix well, spread into two sandwiches. Eat.

This is a Ukrainian tradition passed down from his Gramma. His father grew up doing this and Jeff grew up doing this. And now Jeff and I do it.

My Easter tradition? Chocolate, silly.
