EASTER RECAP

We had a lovely Easter. Yes it was a lot of work and I bitch most of the way through the preparations (and clean up), but after all is said and done I am always glad that I was able to give my family a delicious meal!

We had Deviled Eggs, Bridgeport Rolls, Cheddar Cheese Biscuits, Easy Cheesy Zucchini Bake, Delicious Cream Cheese Corn, Mashed Potatoes, Parmesan-Roasted Green Beans, Prime Rib and The Very Best Brussels Sprouts Ever. These linked recipes are all from Pinterest and you can find them on my Things I Have Made-Check !

Everything was delicious and came out perfectly. Of course coordinating everything to be ready and warm at the same time is something I don't enjoy. I wanted to do some Brussels Sprouts in the oven but I didn't think I would have space even with my two ovens. Towards the end when everything was ready I ended up putting the Brussels Sprouts under the broiler to crisp them up a little bit. (Mark made the Prime Rib)

Amber and Dylan dyed Easter Eggs on Friday night. On Saturday I made a Low Carb Lemon Cheesecake which we used to celebrate Tristen's Birthday. (We still need to go out and have her real birthday dinner) The cheesecake turned out perfectly and I also made some fresh whipped cream. I also made another batch of those cute little Chow Mein Noodle Nests to send over to Dylan's family.



Amber & Dylan got us this cute Easter card. The entire Easter meal was low carb! We also got some really nice gifts from Adam & Tristen's trip to Greece which I need to share with you. See these new Snickers PB Bars? Yes I bought them but haven't tried them yet.(not low carb) Snickers were always my favorite until Peanut Butter cups became my favorite so what could possibly be better than theses?


Have a great weekend....


P.S. I had first seen the Snickers PB Squares on A Bench With a View.

Your egg plate is so cute! I love brussel sprouts but we roasted asparagus in the oven for Easter dinner this year. Sprinkled with a little parm and it was delish!

Have a nice weekend!

What a great Easter meal! Ours was small this year- just DoodleBug, Hubs, my mother, myself...but it was good- all gluten free, sugar free, etc. I made the carrot cake with cream cheese icing-sweetened only with honey! Isn't Pinterest wonderful? LOL

Oh heavenly days! This post has just made me hungry all over again! I haven't tried the Snickers PB bars yet. The dyed eggs are beautiful, and cheesecake is my favorite! Yes, I know how you feel about the dinner preparations and clean up. However, I only baked a spiral cut ham and broccoli/rice casserole. Yum. Mom did the rest. I love holiday co-op meals (pot luck). Happy weekend!
