We've begun a tradition at Gateway - on Good Friday, the youth come over to our house and join us in dyeing Easter eggs and eating knoepfla soup. What's that, you say? It's a traditional German recipe that my mom made every Good Friday for our family while we were growing up. Its basically a cream of potato soup with an egg dumpling in it. I like mine with a few drops of vinegar. Fiona make the knoepfla this time - it was fantastic! She came a bit early and helped me put together the soup. I so appreciated the help. I'm not much of a cook, and Fiona's got mad skills. Emily brought a few fun dyeing kits from Michaels, including a fun sort of gold leaf thing. She was the only one who seemed able to mast it, though. I gave it a shot, but my egg turned out rather pathetic. Noah ate more eggs than he dyed, I think, and Taylor spent most of his time making one super fantastically detailed egg. Brian covered one egg in masking tape and called that good. Take a look at our afternoon.
