Our Easter Lunch

Our Easter Lunch

Happy (belated) Easter everyone! Our Easter was a little crazy and unfortunately virus-filled! My son was getting over a cold and my husband started his day by greeting the toilet What better way to start Easter Sunday!

The plan was set; Mass at 11:00, rush home to prepare the apps and pasta, grandparents and uncle over by 12:30, chat over Easter lunch, etc. In an nutshell: eat, drink, and be merry! Well, WE ate, WE drank, and WE were merry…My husband on the other hand was not! (It’s a good thing he napped the entire time and didn’t know what delicious food he was missing!).

Here’s our Easter in some festive pictures:

We finally put these interesting placements that we bought in Nice, France last summer to good use!  They’re brilliant-each one displays a certain personality trait which you then use as a placemat to represent each individual dinner guest.

I didn’t have much time on my hands after coming home from Mass so the appetizers were literally two-bite crostini with homemade roasted red pepper dip and crumbled feta cheese…not TOO shabby, I’d say!

Taking a whiff before we scarf it all down (well, except for me-it wasn’t gluten-free and I was too lazy to make my OWN pasta!).

Testing out a new recipe on the guinea pigs my family: White Bean Vanilla Lemon and Honey Cake (recipe coming soon!) with honey-lime macerated strawberries Not ONE of them could guess what the cake was made of…and I must say, they were all pleasantly surprised! (You can ask them, they’ll vouch for me!)

And that was our Easter..in a nutshell!
(For the record, after writing this post and going to bed I ended up having a nice chat with Mr.Toilet too…ALL night long!)

How was your Easter? Any special recipes that you’d like to share?! 😉
