So we got a few chicks. When I say a few I mean 31. In a small way they inspired the following deviled eggs, but the main inspiration came from something I saw on Pinterest.
I got tired and the kids were hungry before I got done so the eyes have a small problem.
And this one ended up with no eyes at all.
When I was cutting open the eggs I came across a white yolk! This is caused by a really rare mutation in the digestive system of the chicken. Now that I know that this is a possibility, I am hoping we end up with a mutant chicken that provides us with all white eggs.

We started our day off with a stack of rainbow pancakes. Bananas were added for clouds and we counted the pure maple syrup as our pot of liquid gold. To make the rainbow I added food coloring into my favorite pancake batter and cooked as usual. For next time I might find a way to flavor the pancakes different flavors. That way we can have a rainbow of flavors too! We had our traditional dinner of corned beef and cabbage. This year I tried roasting the cabbage instead of steaming it. I used this recipe of Martha Stewart's, except I used fresh rosemary instead of the caraway or fennel seeds. I will definitely cook cabbage this way again. We ended the day with a drink of lemon lime soda with a scoop of lime sherbet floating in it.
