Happy Easter! Or Happy Day After Easter (and so on) depending on when you read this. See how accommodating I am?
I kept seeing things online this year about making Resurrection Rolls to teach your kids about Easter. Have you seen them? It was pretty neat. You take a large marshmallow, which represents Christ, then roll it in melted butter and cinnamon sugar to represent His body being prepared for burial with oil and spices. Then you wrap the marshmallow (Jesus) in a crescent roll (linen) and put it in the oven (tomb) to bake. When you take it out of the oven and open up the roll, it's empty (the resurrection).
That is, if it all works out the way it should.
Let me rewind a bit. This week has been the spring break for my daughter's school. Being the supermom (choke, gasp, wheeze) that I am, I'd been storing up supplies to make homemade Shrinky Dinks for such an occassion. So my daughter thinks it's cool to stand in front of the oven to watch the stuff inside. Who could blame her with Shrinky Dinks?
Now back to the Resurrection Rolls. My daughter really wanted to put the rolls together herself, and I let her do quite a bit of it. But she didn't exactly get the crescent rolls completely sealed around some of the marshmallows. Of course, we didn't realize it until the rolls were in the oven.
And she stood in front of the oven to watch them bake.
And watched as Jesus melted out of the rolls. GAAAAA!!!
So it was on to distraction while I took the rolls out of the oven and tried to hide the melted marshmallows. Is it wrong to tell you that melted cinnamon sugar marshmallow Jesus tasted yummy? Anyway, I gave her the unbroken rolls for her to open up and find empty. I think I might have mentioned somewhere in there that Jesus didn't really melt. I can't really be sure. I just kept picturing my Mom of the Year award being taken away...
