The menu that I planned was absolutely effortless, and a lot of the dishes were assembled the night before Easter. On Easter day, we enjoyed family time outside, and on the porch.
|Our simple table on the porch. I bought Gerber Daisies and Irises from Trader Joes for less than $10.|
Will arranged them for me. I have no talent in this area, but he is neat, patient, and gets the job done.
|Love the colors of Easter eggs in the green grass. My new shoe is as bright as an Easter egg|
|This was the first year that Baby Diva truly got the idea of what she was supposed to do on an egg hunt.|
|I hammed it up for everyone this year. The ham came from Trader Joe's, and I just warmed it. Can you say easy?|
|My side dishes except for the deviled eggs all came from Raleigh Junior Leagues's cookbook.|
|A simple Easter buffet. I fell in the love with the napkins at Fresh Market|
|Marinated asparagus. This was my mom's favorite dish. She doesn't cook, but now wants|
the recipe. I told her that I would share it on the blog later this month because it's perfect for
|My mother-in-law's deviled eggs. In my personal recipe book, I call them|
"Ha Ha's deliciously devilish eggs"
|Shoe-Peg Corn Salad which is a family favorite.|
|The Trader Joe's ham was outstanding.|
|Mr. Cool, eats with his shades, of course when he is outdoors. He is the deviled egg eater in our family.|
I think he ate three before one could say, "Happy Easter!"
And finally, I just had to share this special photo from Easter morning. The Easter bunny brought Baby Diva a little Minnie Mouse. I would say it was love at first sight.
|A new friend for my little love. I'm so happy that my camera caught this special Easter moment.|
I hope you had a nice break, too.
