So many flowers blooming
Petite little squirrels come out to play.
Really big bears awake from their slumber
Imaginative children enjoy a walk with their friends.
No tree is left standing with out any leaves. So
Go ahead jump for joy because spring is here.
Lots of fun things today:

Egg Salad Crescent Rolls Carrots
- 1 tube Pillsbury Crescent Recipe Creations Crescent Seamless Dough Sheet*
- 1 egg (whisked with 1 teaspoon of water to make an egg wash)
- 1 1/2 cups of your favorite egg or ham salad
- 1 bunch of fresh dill or parsley
Special Equipment Needed:
- pizza cutter or knife
- 6 metal cream horn molds
- pastry brush
- non-stick aluminum foil-lined baking sheet*If you can’t find this product, you can use sheets of puff pastry, or use crescent rolls and pinch all the seams together.
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Unroll the Pillsbury Crescent Recipe Creations Seamless Dough Sheet onto a cutting board. Â Use a pizza cutter or a knife to cut the dough lengthwise into 6 equal strips. Brush one strip with egg wash.
- Roll the strip into a 17-18″ long log. I rolled the strip of dough up into a tube and pinched the seam shut. Then I rolled out the dough into a thinner, longer log by pushing and rolling Â the log with both hands.
- Repeat, brushing egg wash onto each dough strip before rolling each into logs.
- Create 6 logs.
- Wrap one dough log around each cream horn mold, trying to keep the seam side against the metal mold.
- Be sure your dough does not hang over the open end of the cream horn mold, as it will make it difficult to remove once baked.
- Bake for 6-8 minutes until golden brown. Â I suggest rotating the pan half way through the baking cycle for even browning.
- Allow carrot crescents to cool for about 5 minutes.
- Carefully remove the cream horn form by holding the carrot in one hand and using the other hand to twist the mold and gently pull it out.
- Fill each Carrot Crescent with egg salad or ham salad. Â Press a few sprigs of dill or parsley into the egg salad for a decorative effect. Your carrots will keep in an airtight container for up to 2 days, but are best served the day they are baked.
- Fill your carrots just before serving.
Easter Origami Fortune Teller
I’m sure we’ve all made these at some point in time (it used to be a sleepover favorite).
- square of paper – click here for instructions to make a rectangle of paper (typical 8.5×11 sheet) into a square.
- Pen or pencil.
- Wrapping an Easter egg in textured fabric before dyeing creates an intricate pattern that looks like hand-painting. To get the look, use fabrics such as lace, cheesecloth, or netting. Wrap a square of your chosen fabric tightly around the egg, twist to close, and secure with a rubber band. Dunk the egg in food-safe dye, using the fabric tail as a handle.Easter Egg Tip:Â¬â€ For best results, use a new piece of cheesecloth for each egg. Other fabrics can be used multiple times.
