So, as a non-Christian I celebrate other things. I don't object to sharing a meal with a Christian, obviously. That would just be anti-social. So, my eggs come from a more earthy pagan place, with some shades of the East in there. Hanamatsuri being one of my favorites. I first started celebrating Hanamatsuri during my time in Monterey, California for four years. I participated with the Monterey Buddhist Temple for two years in a row to assemble the hanamido. I made cascarones this year in the midwest to celebrate the lengthening of days and myriad of biological life that is taking place right now as the weather warms.
1.) You're gonna need eggs, and a bowl. You will also need a screw-driver. Get some colored tissue paper, glue, rice, crystals, very small candies, seeds, and gold-leaf too. Read on, all will be explained.
2.) Pop a hole in the top and bottom of each egg. Do this to as many eggs as you have time for to compose. Keep them in their carton, it's easier to pop holes in them. Be quick and precise. You have to distribute the pressure evenly. Hit the very top of the egg. You might screw up a couple of times. THAT IS OKAY.
3.) After you have holes in the bottom and top of theses babies, you're going to need to blow the egg out into a bowl. Use the egg white and yolk mixture for frittata, omelette, or quiche.
4.) Next, time to fill them with things! Place lots of confetti inside to fall out when you crack these over your friend's and family's head. Include rice, crystals, or even small candies!
5.) Use glue and the remaining tissue paper, gold-leaf, and glue (or wax for the brave) to make texture and color!
6.) Finally, CRACK THEM over the top of your friend's and family's head. They will love it, and you will too.
