         I'M NOT MARTHA - Tuesday, March 18, 2008
____________________________________________________________



Hi! I'm Lizzy!!  and I'm not Martha!!!

My oh my....it's Easter, almost.  If you survived St. Patrick's 
Day and do not have a pounding headache....then it's Easter. 
I do Easter eggs...carton after carton of eggs.  As I have told 
you in years past, Easter egg dyeing is a contact sport in my 
house.  From birth on the egg dyeing days before Easter are 
filled with fierce competition.

Which is all well and good but it means I have carton after 
carton of, well, cartons.  It doesn't feel very green to just 
toss them...especially when you can have fun craft day with 
them. Let your kids recycle them into dozen of tulips and 
daffodils.  Make the flowers for your table arrangement or 
save them for a rainy spring day.

P.S. If you're interested we now have a forum. You can post 
comments on this and recent issues at... Not Martha forum


EGG CARTON FLOWERS

materials:
	 Egg cartons
	 Scissors
	 Glue
	 Green flexible straws
	 Colored markers


1. To make a tulip, cut an individual cup from an egg carton. 
Trim the sides of the cup to form four petals (the ends can 
be rounded or pointed). For a finishing touch, use a colored 
marker to accent the edges of the petals.

2. For a daffodil, start with two yellow egg cups. Prepare one 
as described for the tulip. Trim the second cup so that the 
edge is even and the sides are about an inch tall. Fit the 
short cup into the first cup and glue it in place.

3. Finally, make a small slit in the bottom of each flower and 
insert the end of a straw for a stem. Now your flowers are 
ready to be arranged into a cheerful centerpiece for the Easter 
dinner table.

FLUTTER DELIGHTS CUPCAKES

ingredients:
	 1 baked cupcake
	 White icing
	 1/2 sour gummy worm
	 2 fruit slices, sliced in half
	 Gumdrop slices (optional)
	 2 1/2-inch pieces of shoestring licorice

1. Frost the cupcake and arrange the following on top: gummy 
worm "abdomen," fruit slice "wings" (attach gumdrop detail with 
icing for spots, if you like), and shoestring licorice for the 
antennae.

And now for grown-ups...here is a terrific recipe for all those 
hard boiled eggs.  Not your typical stuffed egg....Grown up 
Easter Bunnies will get a kick out of these deviled eggs that 
are a little Mexican and a little Asian.

SPICY AVOCADO-STUFFED EGGS

10 large eggs
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon wasabi paste (Japanese horseradish paste)*
1/4 teaspoon salt
Pinch freshly ground black pepper
1 plum tomato, seeded and finely chopped
1 scallion, finely chopped
1 serrano chile, seeded and minced
1 firm-ripe Hass avocado, halved, peeled, pitted, and diced

*Available at Asian markets and some supermarkets

In medium saucepan, combine eggs (in single layer) and cold water 
to cover. Bring to boil, turn off heat, cover pan, and let stand 
18 minutes. Drain, add cold water to cover eggs, drain again, add  
several ice cubes to pan, and again add cold water to cover. Let  
stand until eggs are cold, about 3 minutes.

Peel eggs and halve lengthwise. Carefully remove yolks and mash 
in large bowl with fork. Add mayonnaise, lime juice, wasabi paste, 
salt, and pepper and stir with fork until smooth. Fold in tomato, 
scallion, and chile. Fold in avocado. Spoon mixture into whites.

Makes 20 hors d'oeuvres.

So have yourself a lovely Easter.
