April brings…

March and Easter4

With the madness of March left behind, we spent Easter with family and friends.

The day was glorious!

The sun was shining, the windows were opened and kids were outside looking for the eggs the teens had hidden.

Little did they know, the teens had dug the eggs into the ground throughout the yard and would only find a few.

The MENU was scrumptious!

Ham, glazed with a maple syrup/apricot preserve/Dijon sauce, was succulent

Easter kielbasa, so juicy, it squirted when the fork was stuck into it

Garlic Yukon Gold smashed potatoes with fresh chives from the garden, yum

al dente green and white asparagus

sautéed green beans with garlic

field green salad with brie and strawberries and the last of my special balsamic vinegar

Cottage cheese bread with dill and shallots

Irish butter

Lemon Meringue pie

Key Lime pie

Red Velvet cupcakes

Various Chocolate

It was good for the soul, to see everyone having such a good time.

Brothers embracing the words of each other, laughing. sharing, the difficulties of some seemed a million miles away.

Soon to be daughter-in-laws getting to know each other a little better.

Cousins and soon to be cousins to hang out with.

It was a VERY good day!

It was a VERY good weekend.
