Egg Night

Last Saturday we took a trip to Daiso - an awesome 100 yen (dollar store).  We had one in Union City, but it does not even compare to the ones in Japan.  While wandering around I found this section that I decided to call the Yochien Mom section.  For a bit of background, Japanese moms put together amazing Bento lunches for their kids. I wouldn't be surprised if they spent hours each day just on their kids lunches. :)

I decided to buy a couple of their fun little accessories to "keep up with the Joneses". :)
Behold, the boiled egg shaper.

Step One: Boil egg and peel it while it's still hot.
Step Two: Place in shaper and snap close.
Step Three: Place in refrigerator for at least 5 minutes.
 Step Four: Open mold and behold the egg.
My heart got a little messed up because part of the egg stuck on the shell. :(
 Step Five: Slice egg and Enjoy.
In the future I'll use a sharp knife, not a butter knife.

We started our Easter festivities with the rest of the boiled eggs.  We are tagging along on one of Kurt's business trips tonight was one of our only chances to do the Easter prep.  My mom sent us an Easter package which included Easter egg dye.  (Thanks Mom!)  I realized after we started that I should have bought white eggs...oops.  There is always next year.

 Kurt and Logan's traditional "poop egg".
