I know this is late, and I m so sorry that I’ve been a ghost. Life has been so very busy and I just haven’t gotten around to connecting. How was your Easter? We had a lovely one. The Martz family had their dinner on Good Friday, unfortunately i was not well. But thankfully I had prepared my portion of the meal before I felt sick. This meal it was my turn to make devilled eggs, and cooked ham. Easy! I wanted to try something a bit different with the devilled eggs, so i dyed them once they were cooked. I made some pretty pastel eggs. According to Paul they were a big hit, so that made me happy.
On Sunday we had our Easter dinner with my family. It’s a small group but we always have a great time. Lots of laughs, conversations, food, treats and love. Each year I try to come up with a new table setting idea, and this year I managed this one.
Cute little bunny bums digging in our flower pots. Each one had a name tag so we knew where to sit around the table. I always have so much fun with table setting.
For dessert this year I made a carrot cake. It was a recipe from a neighbour who shared it many years ago. It’s actually my favourite carrot cake recipe, its easy to make but tastes soooo good!
