Now that the Easter holiday has come and gone, there remains one question: what to do with the leftovers? I don’t mean the ham or the roast; sandwiches are the obvious answer to that dilemma.

I am talking about all of that candy and those eggs. Do people still dye real eggs, anymore? I saw lots of stuff on Pinterest about coloring eggs, but I didn’t see a single real egg at any Easter event I attended. Nonetheless, I made hard boiled eggs for Easter dinner. I knew that my little niece loves deviled eggs and so I would need some on hand. So there, is my answer to what to do with left over hard boiled eggs — make deviled eggs or egg salad out of them.

Or, I suppose, one could cut them up and use them in a salad or just save them to eat on the way out the door in the morning. says that hard boiled eggs, either in their shells or out, are good for up to one week. However, to remain good for that long, they should, of course, be refrigerated.

Now, let’s get to that other leftover stuff. First of all, you’re going to want to go ahead and throw those marshmallow bunnies and chicks away. If the kids haven’t eaten them by now, they probably won’t and who needs that kind of temptation sitting around. Many people indulge during their Easter dinner, so Monday saw the beginning of a lot of diets, I’m sure.

Though, come to think of it, those little sweet treats aren’t very tempting to me.

The chocolate would be my great downfall. Who can resist a chocolate bunny? Those must be split up among all of the children in the family and sent home so their parents have to worry about what to do with them.

Those of you who get stuck with too much chocolate can consider freezing some of it. But, then again, I have never known anyone who said they had too much chocolate. I can only suggest that parents don’t let the children see you bite the ears of the bunnies.

But yes, when eating a chocolate bunny, you should start with the ears.
