Easter bunny egg? Loch Ness Weeble? No. It’s a hard-boiled egg rolled in dill. And it was yummy. My nephew Zev invented this dish, and it is called the Green Hairy Egg.

The adventure continues in Lenonia NJ.

I’m spending a long weekend with my cousin and family in Leonia NJ. Today we went to the bakery, and were met at the door by the largest pile of butter I have ever seen. It was awesome.

Worth Their Weight in Butter: My Cousin Scott and his daughter Frances at Balthazar Bakery in Englewood NJ

I had a shockingly good chocolate chip cookie, and we brought home a giant, and delicious, loaf of bread.

Other highlights so far:

  • didn’t get lost on the way here
  • played a surprise game of soccer with my dog
  • got yelled at by a NY cop
  • juggled tennis balls representing the Jewish Matriarchs and Patriarchs for Tot Shabbat at the local Synagogue
  • got recognized as being from Pittsburgh by the grocery bag I had the tennis balls in

Unfortunately I was not able to connect with my NYC juggler pals, but I’ve got a whole day and a half left in Leonia, so who knows what else might go down.
