Give us your best Easter recipes and holiday tips/stories….. or …. your disasters make great stories as well.
Of course, the kids all received fresh haircuts, new suits, and we had them spit-polished for Church. At our house, the kids could NOT hunt for Easter eggs and baskets until they came home from church.
Loved the leg of lamb but never did like the mint sauce. Change my mind?
Time to drag out the Asparagus servers……. tis the season!
And the Strawberries, gosh the strawberries are at PEAK right now.
Time to get out Grandma’s china and polish the silver.
And the lamb, swan, bunny collections to decorate the table.
Do you have an Easter tree at your house? We have an Easter tree, but the kids got involved, and it became bigger. Now, we just cut down a scrag tree in the back yard and spray paint it white. That way, all the ornaments can fit on it.
The Germans decorate egg trees outside. Isn’t this beautiful?
Hey, as long as there is Strawberry Angelfood Cake, all is right with the world……. and maybe a Reese’s cup in my Easter basket.
For some houses, Grandma’s china will remain on the shelf until next year, but the sentiment remains. I have a feeling a lot of desperate phone calls will be made from daughter to mom, “Mom, what’s the recipe for…….”, because we’re not together this year.
But hey, sooner or later, everyone needs to learn how to make deviled eggs.
The good times with the kids will return.
Happy Easter to all!
