Pink Eggs for Audrey

Like most three year olds Audrey fancies pink. She also will wear nothing but dresses. And her crown. The crown is a beaded headband that is supposed to hold her hair back but manages to do the opposite. You may have seen it in recent pictures. She believes her dress, crown, and tights makes her a princess. A pink loving princess. So I decided to make a pink meal. The other day I purchased some beets at the grocery store to roast and enjoy. I ended up boiling half to puree so we could make pink pancakes. After pureeing the rest of the beets I had enough to make several batches of pink pancakes. I froze most of the puree and only left enough out for two batches of pink pancakes. While deciding what to eat I spied the beet puree. I dropped half in a bowl of eggs and had the girls help mix.
Audrey and Maurene's Tasks:

  1. Mix eggs
  2. Stir eggs
Moms's Tasks:
  1. Gather ingredients
  2. Crack eggs (Mo wanted to but she is a little rough with eggs)
  3. Assist Audrey in scrambling
I made enough to have some myself and there was no discernible taste. If you have a pink lover in your family you should give this a try. The girls loved their pink eggs.

  1. I have a chicken that lays almost pink eggs. They *are* very pretty.

  2. This is a cute idea. My grandkids would LOVE pink pancakes. And what a little princess you have.
