Happy Easter!

He is Risen!

YummyIn the morning I’ll probably be following around our risen daughter, making sure she leaves some goodies for her brother, and helping her decipher the clues the Easter Bunny left her as to where her basket might be. Right now the Easter Bunny is still deciding on the best hiding place.

We had a great time this weekend, baking cookies, decorating them, and playing Uno. Thursday we watched the newly released Chronicles of Narnia, which seemed allegorical enough to count for an Easter activity to me. We probably should have decorated eggs too, but the cookies were enough. Some more yummies.

We’re going to the in-laws tomorrow for dinner, and I wasn’t sure what to bring for my contribution, so my ever-creative MIL suggested this very, um, interesting salad. I’m not sure how it’s going to taste, but it kind of looks pretty, and the recipe is in this Better Homes and Gardens book from circa sometime in the 70s. It’s got iceberg lettuce, boiled eggs, peas, bacon, swiss cheese and mayonnaise in layers, which we mix up before serving.

We all know Jon will be gorging himself into a chocolate-diabetic coma, what are you doing this Easter?


  1. Cookies with MOM! No better way to spend a holiday weekend!
    Happy Easter, everybunny!

  2. Wow, you’re such a great Mom! And here I thought I was doing well to buy a few plastic eggs and some chocolate-covered marshmallow ones, but you whip up these gorgeous things!!

  3. What an awesome Mom you are! We met up at my brother’s for brunch (low fat and fantastic!), then brother #2 and I went out for a bike ride, while brother #1 went out with hubby #2 to play 9 holes. Daughter #1 and only had to work after brunch, poor pet. Turkey for Steve is in the oven, the house smells great, and KT and I will wonder as we do every occasion, why we are vegetarians.

    Happy Easter ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Awesome cookies, miss Susy Homemaker! I’m not a fan of peas, but the salad looks good.
