That would be the Easter bunny hopping away and I cannot BELIEVE how fast this year is going. Sigh. On New Years Eve I speculate what will be different/the same/new/whatever each month in the year to come and it's almost April and I don't feel like I've accomplished much. Sigh again.
Anyway, how was your Easter? Ours was nice albeit hectic as of course I couldn't seem to time my cooking to fit the guest arrival time. But it was better this year than most so that's a start. I made the traditional ham and tried a Martha recipe for scalloped potatoes with leeks and Gruyere. YUM. I'll definately be making them again. We ate Easter tiramisu and strawberry shortcake from Veniero's and my quiche and broccoli casserole (Mom's recipe) went over better with the kids than I had expected. Calling the quiche "scrambled egg pie" really helped. ;)
I was so crazy that I forgot to take pictures PRIOR to dinner. Nice. But I did snap a few.
My lovely feather tree, a generous gift from Sarah, got a few Martha butterflies added this year plus some eggs my Mom sent last year that were a pleasant surprise when I opened the Easter bin.
Some lovely tulips from the grocery store. I wrapped the pots in fabric. Hopefully it will warm up soon so I can plant them in the yard though I'm considering a window box. However, that would mean pairing Luis up with power tools and letting him loose on the siding. Not sure that is such a grand idea.
And my favorite decoration . . .
This was my centerpiece. That's the lovely basket I bought from One Hundred Wishes filled with paper shreds (that were in a gift bag from my boss, how's that for reuse/recycle!) and some glittery eggs from the thrift store and Joann's. I really love how this looked! Want to see a close up?
Ahhh . . . glittery goodness, no?
So now I'm off into blogland to see how all of your holidays were spent. I expect to find some goodness there, too.
