As we savor the Easter season, I want to share with you a bit of culinary creativity that we savored on Easter Sunday. Two of the best Ursuline cooks in the St. Louis area are Sisters Marilyn and Mary. Not only are they good cooks, but they have an eye for fun and creativity. As the saying goes, we eat with our eyes, not just our stomachs! On Easter Sunday 16 Ursulines in our local area gathered for a potluck supper. Much of the table contained delicious dishes you might expect—ham, potatoes, green beans, squash and jello salad. And then the fun began!

With the help of some clever knife work and some radishes, celery sticks and olives, the Sisters turned a plate of deviled eggs into a whole family of Easter bunnies! Even from the end of the line I could hear comments like “Oh, look!” and “How cute!” and “How did they do these?”

And just like the infomercials on TV say—but WAIT! At each place setting we had an individually wrapped cookie. Here’s a photo of mine. Some were Easter eggs and others were tulips. What FUN! So often people want to know what we Sisters do for fun. Well . . . some of us cook for fun, and many of us have fun sharing what they create!
