Easter

 DSC_3399Our daughter enjoyed the Easter Egg Hunt at our church (Faith UMC) with the children from Watoto. DSC_3499The Easter Bunny was very creative with his hiding places.  Since we used some natural dyes this year and our daughter helped, we decided to leave ours on the front porch for the Easter bunny to hide.  I’m sure he appreciated the help!

Check out the sponge rollers in our daughter’s hair.  She begs to have her hair rolled for special occasions, and I’m happy to oblige since the finished result is so dang cute!

These are the famous cabbage rolls—even better this year than previous ones.

Super easy roasted asparagus

1 lb of asparagus ends trimmed

Good quality extra virgin olive oil

Fresh cracked salt and pepper

Lay asparagus in a roasting pan and drizzle with olive oil.  Season with salt and pepper.  Roast on 400 degrees for approx 15 minutes or until tender.  YUMMY! DSC_3571

We added a half of a can of crushed pineapple to the glaze for a special touch on the ham.  Perfection! DSC_3576The Easter table, not including the desserts (homemade whole wheat carrot cake and homemade sugar free banana pudding for my dad).  It was a tough one since it was the first one after the loss of my grandmother, but it was still a special time. We did a little reminiscing about her, and it was sweet. 

Notice only one platter of sausage.  Yet, when we talked with the rest of the family, we suspect that all together we bought MORE sausage this year than in previous ones.  My aunt’s family had a platter, my uncle had about 5 platters, my cousins had some, my sister had another platter for her family, and of course we had ours.  If you notice a boost in the stocks of sausage making companies, you have us to thank for it.  ;) 

I hope your Easter was a blessed one.
