Happy Valentine’s Day – Heart Shaped Eggs

20150214_114338
I saw this somewhere on the internet yesterday and found myself the only one up this morning, so …  obviously have way too much time on my hands. That said, I love hearts and collect hearts found in nature.  I’m pretty much a sucker for anything heart related, so heart shaped eggs for Valentine’s Day is a no-brainer.  I realize that this is not found in nature as it is more of a craft project, however, I am willing to look the other way.  This is silly, fun, adorable and very easy.  Just peel a hard boiled egg while it’s still warm and place it inside a folded piece of cardboard and rubberband a chopstick along the top.  Let cool and slice in two for heart shaped eggs.  What a great way to start the day! Or how about a cute addition to your salad tonight? I’m feeling the love…
