It was hectic here today; we hosted a brunch for one gaggle of family members and dinner for another gaggle. We were also blessed to have a dear friend of the family share our Easter celebration.
- Simmered Ham
- Green Bean Casserole ( My daughter Stephanie NEEDS this dish!)
- Scalloped Potatoes
- Hard Boiled Eggs
- Haney Made Horseradish
- Asparagus roasted w/garlic
- Raspberry Topped Cheesecake
You will note that Calvin is in the first shot. This is because, although he is new to us, he has already made a decision to be a Polish cat for Easter and truly enjoy kielbasa. If you know us, you know that this little guy has turned out to be a real chow hound. I wasn't sure how he would feel about the kielbasa...but did I even need to wonder?????
Please also note the egg tree -- my dear father (long since deceased) selected that branch years and years ago just for this purpose. I have tried to take good care of it from year to year. Some of those eggs are store-bought -- some are eggs that my own mother decorated way back when I was a little girl. So that was way back in the dark ages! Next Easter we'll make a project of crafting some new homemade eggs for this tree. Store bought is nice, but I would love to replace the hand-made ones that have broken over the years.
We pray that all of our friends had as blessed a weekend as we have had here. Now here it is not even 7:00 pm, company is gone, the house is all tidy, and already we're trying to get ready for work tomorrow. Whew!!!!
