A few days ago, Chris Smith, 65, of Mount Ephraim got an urgent text from her niece, Adriana DiEva, 8, of Cherry Hill. There was an egg drop Saturday morning, and Adriana had to be there. "I said, 'Do you mean an egg hunt?' I never heard of an egg drop," Smith said. "Egg drop, to me, is soup - not eggs coming out of the sky. " But that's what was in store Saturday, when they arrived at Joyce Kilmer Elementary School in Cherry Hill to the buzz of surveillance drones overhead and the sight of another drone, loaded with pastel eggs, parked in wait.

Across most Christian cultures, as Easter draws near, there's a shared notion that the springtime celebration demands some mixture of flour, yeast, and, most definitely, eggs. The symbolism of these breads is rich, as are their flavors, which run the gamut from sweet to savory. Any of these baked goods can enliven the Easter table. Hot cross buns are widely associated with Easter in the British Isles, Australia, New Zealand, and beyond, and they start appearing around Ash Wednesday.

THE MAYOR'S annual budget briefing is always a big day in City Hall, so it makes sense to start off with a hearty breakfast. But $500 to $1,000 per plate? Those better be some damn tasty eggs. Cherelle Parker , a former state representative who has been a City Council member for two months, brought home some ideas from Harrisburg. One of them: Use budget briefings for political fund-raisers. Parker this week sent supporters an invitation to "an intimate conversation" next Thursday from 8 to 9 a.m. at McCormick & Schmick's, a restaurant across from City Hall.

DEAR ABBY: I recently decided that I wanted to help an infertile couple conceive by becoming an egg donor. I'm well-educated and have a job I love. I understand the commitment both time-wise and emotionally. I am now part of a registry, and I could be selected for a donation at any time. Like other young women, I am dating. However, I am conflicted about whether to tell my dates about my involvement with egg donation and if so, how. I understand that this is extremely personal, but at the same time I could have genetic offspring out there.

I'm a sucker for a good can of tuna, and this recipe gives it a slightly sophisticated profile, with greens, eggs, and a bit of Parmesan cheese. It's quick to put together, and so pantry-friendly you might not even have to shop. You do need a jumbo-muffin pan. Tuna Spinach Tortas 4 to 6 servings 10 ounces frozen spinach, preferably in a bag rather than in a block Two 5-ounce cans tuna packed in olive oil 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese 1/2 cup plain panko (bread crumbs)
